I have a UWP app that we use in house. When I have a new version I put it up on a share and my tester copies it to the Surface Pro 4, right clicks on the setup app and runs with Power Shell. Usually that works fine, but there have been times when for reasons unknown we had to uninstall the existing version first and then install the new build before it would take.

When we deem everything happy he then Remote Desktop's into the other Surfaces in various cities and repeats the process to take the version live.

I haven't encountered any particular gotchas in terms of side loading, but we did get bit by Microsoft's bloody "We're gonna update Windows whenever we feel like it and you can't do anything about it" policy. I believe it was the Redstone 3 update, which jacked the networking on all of our boxes and burned us for a few days. But that's a Windows 10 thing, not specific to UWP.

Overall it's been fun to work with.
