The tile will be reacquired from the cloud when the parent app is installed by the user, using their Microsoft account, on another computer.


As of Windows 8.1, secondary tile roaming is the default behavior. In Windows 8, you opted into roaming; as of Windows 8.1, you opt out. If Windows detects that the running version of the tile's app dates from before Windows 8.1, the absence of CopyOnDeployment is seen as equivalent to RoamingEnabled ="false".

None 0
