Apk won't install.

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Nov 02, 2016 10:55 pm

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.

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.
