You don't.

As far as I'm aware Gene motion is x86 only.

Dave

There isn't an alternative either.

As far as I'm aware, until there is a jailbreak for Windows RT 8.1, there is no way to install applications outside of those on the Windows Store.

Apart from those Windows apps that have been recompiled for ARM and run on a jailbroken Surface!

Granted there aren't very many, and they will almost all be open source desktop applications, but they do exist.

If MS opened up the Surface so that desktop apps could be installed, you would likely see many more. For example, Google would port Chrome to RT if they could.

Dave

There are dozens of ported applications (see the link in my signature) with more coming slowly but steadily. There are also lots of pure .NET applications, which work fine on RT once it has been jailbroken. In addition, there are a few custom-written applications for RT, the most important of which is probably @mamaich's x86 dynamic recompilation compatibility layer (sort of like Rosetta for old Macs) that allows running some (old and/or now-demand) x86 programs on RT without modification. Work on it appears to have largely stalled (although the current version is still available, and does work for some programs on RT 8.0) while the jailbreak for RT 8.1 is in development, but I'm confident it will pick up again.

Since you have 8.1, yes, you'll need to wait. Sorry...
