Hey all, new here. Not sure where I would ask this question.

I have a small business and purchased a Surface Pro 2 because I wanted to write an app to help out my employees. I never in a million years would have guessed that being able to sideload an app would be so convoluted and cost-prohibitive. My research so far seems to suggest that you have to be part of a volume licensing program and purchase a MINIMUM of 100 licenses... That's $3000. Money I definitely don't have.

Does anyone know of any way to purchase a single license? I already purchased the Surface and spent considerable time developing the app. I really want to be legit about this but I'm floored that Microsoft would so completely shut out small business from this process.

Any guidance would be SO appreciated!
