Apk won't install.

  • Hello everyone.

    I have created an app, launched it on my device with xdk and it worked perfectly.

    Now when I try to install the apk I can tap "install" as long as I want. It's not doing anything.

    I also made sure that it's allowed to install apps from unknown sources.

    Hope to get some help here.

  • When I export apps from Intel XDK I get two files. One says arm7 something, the other x86 something. The first one is the only one I get to work on my phone, the other, I have no idea what the use is. Make sure you are trying to install this one.

  • If you are trying to install an apk it must be an "signed" or "debug" apk. Unsigned apk's cannot be installed on an celphone.

    JHunter Tried both. None of them worked.

    Could explain to me how I get it "signed"? Thanks for the answer.

    Is this what you are talking about?

    I think that one is not real to the point, i like the following tutorial better. Keystore and signing is from step 4. Goodluck and let me know if its working.

  • You can do signing through Intel XDK. You create your keystore and such with the menu in the program, and select which keystore you want to sign it with in the apps options before publishing it. Literally just click on the warning messages inside of intel xdk

    When I'm doing the stuff from step five it's telling me that the command "zipalign" can't be found.

    I just copied the zipalign.exe into the folder where the apk I wanted to sign is located. It worked and it created a New apk. When I try to install this apk on my phone a window with the words : "package installer has stopped."

    I'll be frankly honest with you. Following the error messages and clicking the links they provide inside of Intel XDK, or a quick google search, would have solved this issue for you. Making a game is not easy, even with a program that does the code for you. If you cannot follow hints or do a quick search on your own to find the answer, you cannot hope to make a game.

    With that being said, I understand this comes easier to some then others, so I took the time to make you a tutorial. Next time try and figure it out on your own as that is the best way to learn and to improve.

    I had this problem yesterday, Make sure that you don't have an APP in that name before
