This sucks. This could be a very short lived install.
    That would be strange and disturbing (But so is WIndows 8).

    Is it possible that the link was to an RT version of the software instead?

    Can you find the app directly by searching in the app store itself?

    On this PC which is running the RP, Slacker Radio shows up in the App store under Music and Video. On my other PC with Enterprise Trial it doesn't show up. I just did a search on that PC and it shows it in the results, but when you click it I get that same "This app is not available for your PC" message. I previously had the RP installed on that PC and Slacker radio installed and ran then.

    Want to know why Slacker Radio wouldn't be available for the note "Developer" version of Enterprise? It's a developer's version not intended for general use to start with! The build is strictly intended for use by IT developers not the consumer. The DP, CP, and RP builds are intended for the general preview.

    A guess or you know this for sure? If you can't install an App how are you going to test that it works? The blurb on the download page says it for developers, I didn't see where it specifically said it was a special developer edition. My guess is its because this App uses up bandwidth and may impact productivity. I'm not saying your wrong, it just doesn't make any sense to me. There were a bunch of Apps installed by default along with the App Store App? Unfortunately, Slacker Radio was the only App I tried to download and install, and I've since replaced the Ent trial with Windows 7 on that PC. I can't try any other apps at this time.

    My guess is the Download manager helps when there is a high volume of people all trying to get it at once. They get less failed downloads and thus less complaints.
