This is one of the “most complex” step, but you will see that it won’t take you more than a few minutes Smile.

 

First you will need to edit a Group Policy Object applying on the users (or create a new one).

On the Group Policy Management Editor go under the User Configuration\Preferences\Windows Settings\Files :

Then create a new file rule. In the dialog that will appear, you will be asked to select a existing file that could be accessed by every users, and to select a location on the destination computer to store it:

The destination file is the most complicated, you should use something like : %localappdata%\Packages\[ApplicationPackageName]\LocalState\StoreStructure.xml.

The difficult part here is the [ApplicationPackageName]. This name can be found directly on a computer where you’ve installed the CompanyStore. By default the package name of last public version of the CompanyStore is : “58460AntoineJ.Windows8CompanyStore_4nawjk43bw5rc”.

So if you did not change, recompile, resign the application package you should use this name, and consequently this path: %localappdata%\Packages\58460AntoineJ.Windows8CompanyStore_4nawjk43bw5rc\LocalState\StoreStructure.xml . But if you have changed something check the name of the package you have built. The last part of the name (in red) is function of the Publisher.

 

If you want to do Targeting to be able to have different XML configuration files for different users population (Marketing, IT, Sales, etc.) you can do it on the “Common” tab, Targeting and add the condition you want (based on OU, Security group, etc.):
