How to run Windows Store app on same machine as server
Posted 18 September 2016 - 08:01 PM
To circumvent this restriction you need to allow loopback for Emby Theater in Windows.
To do this, just download the "Windows 8 Loopback Exemption Manager"
Once downloaded, just run the Windows8LoopbackManager.exe file. Look for Emby Theater in the list of apps. mark the checkbox and click save.
Now go back to Emby Theater and you'll be able to connect.

There is not more executable file available anywhere on your links, please give us another solution to make the windows store app work on a local machine ?
--> for all those looking for an available loopback tool :
Install it, it will launch at the end of installation, or run the program yourself
Launch windows store Emby app
Hit refresh in the loopback tool
Select and click the checkbox for Emby theater (if both clients are running ... close the desktop app)
You are done.
Took me 2 weeks to have that fixed so hopefully this will help some people (but windows store app does not display pictures when scrolling so just stick with the dektop app !)
