Yo, I have question, do any of you on the internet have Windows Embedded 8 Industry Enterprise, you may be thinking, "yes, i do, Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Enterprise", but that's not what I'm asking. I'm asking for windows embedded 8.0 industry enterprise iso. Does anyone have this?

I have one ISO (Windows 8 embedded) not sure about the last names (industry, enterprise, whatever). I've used it on low end machines and it's a very FAST OS. I can't offer you to upload it for several reasons (speed, size and legal aspects), but I can suggest a couple of OFFICIAL links (Microsoft)


Here is the OFFICIAL Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard

Here is the Industry enterprise (trial?) from Microsoft

Industry Pro (from the Internet Archive)

And Windows 8 embedded industry enterprise (also from the Internet Archive)

I haven't tried downloading and installing because I haven't faced a situation that calls for it. So far I'm happy with Windows 8.1 (official recovery from Microsoft for the Surface 3), along Windows 10 on my desktop computer.

the reason why im asking this is because i want to sideload windows 8 apps since i havent used windows 8 in a while. i wanted to see how it'd work on there. do any of these have sideloading capabilities without dev license?

thank you for these

Well... I'm on the same boat.

I'm running official stock Windows 8.1 from Microsoft on my Surface 3, but I can't install any store/metro app, and sideloading is not working for me. I can't even get a developer license (needed for installing) all I can do (ending up with "installed apps") reports errors "this app can't run", I mean: I can sideload apps, but won't open.

This version of Windows does not come with policy editor, but... I tried with Windows 8.1 PRO x64 on another computer, it has policy editor, but still no luck installing apps. It seems after the store was closed we are locked to whatever comes with your Windows out of the box (BUT you can freely install any desktop classic app the usual way, you just won't have access to Store apps).

What are you trying to install? I'm after Xodo Docs (PDF editor). Lucky me, at least the stock recovery from Microsoft comes with Drawboard PDF, it's a great substitute.

Sorry forgot...

After reading a lot on the web, I found people explaining you actually need Policy editor to change some setting, and then you can sideload. But no luck for me. I've been trying with APPBOSS, this tool allows you to directly sideload (used it in the past with great luck) but now it doesn't work, I guess it retrieved the deve license automatically, but not anymore.

Found comments on reddit (4 months ago?) explaining getting the dev license takes time, but after many errors some got it, not me... so no luck.

In the meantime, I've been backing up my Surface 3 in case something goes wrong.

And no, I haven't tried any of those Windows versions, just the official Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and Surface 3 stock. No luck on any of these so far.

i dont have a general aim for a specific app genre, but i do want to install at least SOME apps it depends on what im looking for, i think an excellent one is vlc for windows store. but thats the only (specific) one im looking for.

Did you have any luck with this? I've been searching ways to sideload apps now that the Windows Store is gone for W8, but nope, and everything points out to this: Windows 8 embedded Industry, as supposedly, there is no need for dev accounts. I'll try making some time to install this version of Windows. Any findings will be appreciated.

Well... I just tried, and it didn't work :(
i mean if you use wsappbak, first turn the appx into a folder, 7zip, then use wsappbak to repackage it, install certificate into trusted root, either use powershell or windows app package installer, then it should work, it did for me, if any issues lmk
