Unable to run Live App Test version of app

My app runs fine if I install through adb. I have set up a Live App Test, and wanted to try it out on my device so I can help the testers if needed.

It first made me uninstall the one I had installed through adb. I had to use adb to uninstall because it didn't show up under Applications in Settings.

After that, it installs, but will not open. It gives an error saying "Cannot Open App. The installed version of cannot be opened. Please check for an available update on your library."

Also, on the product page on Amazon.com, it says it's not compatible with any of my devices, including the Fire TV.

Can you uninstall the version downloaded from the LAT, check that the app no longer appears on the Fire TV carousel or on the list of installed applications, then install it again from the Live App Test? It sounds like there was still some information from the app already on the Fire TV which was conflicting with the LAT version that you installed. Thanks, Nick

Thanks. I got it working. I am using code from Android TV's Leanback sample (since Amazon hasn't provided anything similar that actually works) and I had to make some adjustments to the manifest.

Hi there, was your problem related to the intent-filer?

I did the following steps but i still have the same problem. If i adb install the apk it is working ok. My apk also don't list any remote input as compatible and that is strange since i take into account the fire tv remote.

Remote compatibility is added at the time of live submission, so if your app has never been submitted before or has only been submitted as a live app test, it will not show controllers are compatible. However, controllers should still work fine. -Nick
