Hi All, I'm working in a development project and I need to launch a specific app using only It's GUID ... It doesn't have a launch URI.
I heard there's a way to do that using ShellChromeAPI.dll, I really don't care if it passes the store or not, the app is made for personal use not for public, So it's Ok if there are Undocumented APIs .

If any one could help, I'd be really grateful.

here be what you are looking for... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2398275

It is not currently working on WP 8.1. I haven't had time to fool around with it and see if I can get it working.(I have a post at the end of the thread about a theory, but I can't recompile it as a Windows Phone 8.1-native app because I don't have a Windows 8.1 development PC, just Windows 7...and VS 2103 actually checks the OS it is running on to determine if you can develop WP 8.1 apps or not)

In theory it's possible using capability-unlock, but I haven't gotten that working yet.
