Installing eoWarehouse

Jump to: navigation, search

eoWarehouse can be installed in one of two ways: by using a 30-day developers license for testing and immediate use purposes, or by purchasing a permanent sideloading license to use the application permanently on a device.

Developer License Installation

When logged in to your target device as a machine administrator, in order to install eoWarehouse using a Developer license:

  • Navigate to the folder holding the Dev install package. (e.g. eoWarehouse_14.7.7.0_AnyCPU_Test\Add-AppDevPackage)


  • Right click on Add-AppDevPackage and select "Run with Powershell". This will open up a shell prompt that will follow a few inputs:

1) The powershell will offer a security warning. Type R and hit enter to run the script.


2) It will then inform you a developer license is required. Press enter, and then agree to the dev license terms.

  • In order for this step to be successful you will need to ensure that Windows Update Service is running.


3) You will then be asked for credentials for a Windows account. If you have one of your own, you may use that. Otherwise, contact support for the relevant credentials.


4) The application will then have the resources it needs, and will begin to install. Once complete hit enter.


5) You are now ready to begin using eoWarehouse.

Installing eoWarehouse for All Users

Below are examples for PowerShell to Add/Remove eoWarehouse for All Users. This would typically be done by Customers who are using an RDS (Remote Desktop Server) environment for eoWarehouse.

NOTE: If a user manually uninstalls eoWarehouse from their User Profile, when eoWarehouse is being provisioned to All Users, one way to restore eoWarehouse is to delete the users Windows Profile. (System Properties -> Advanced Tab, Settings button under User Profiles. Find and select the user in question, then click Delete), the next time they log in, eoWarehouse will re-appear.

Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online

Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online -PackageName RutherfordAndAssociates.eoWarehouse_17.1.3.0_neutral__e28n0eh99bnpa
