I'm using a VPN connection to my corporate network and am trying to use some Windows-8 style (Modern, Metro, whatever) apps and they are unable to see the network connection when using VPN. This is the case for all Windows 8 apps except for Mail and Calendar. What could be causing this issue, and is there a workaround for this bug?
This is a bug. Microsoft has released a hotfix for this issue. Learn more about this at KB article 2797356, which you can find here: Network status is "Limited" when you use a force tunneling VPN connection in Windows 8
