Parse error when parsing manifest. Discontinuing installation
01-15 11:27:28.771: WARN/PackageInstaller(2396): Parse error when parsing manifest. Discontinuing installation Hi, I'm new to amazon kindle development and I'm trying to convert my app from google play to kindle store. However, when I install the apk from email (don't know how I should do it in other ways!?) I get the error above. When I try the app in
https://developer.amazon.com/public/ - it does not have any problem! This is a terrible log message, what is the problem - how am I suppose to solve this? Is there a place where I can validate my manifest? How can I transfer apk to the kindle? (dropbox cannot be installed) Should it be signed? (guess it have to since I have in-app purchases) Regards
Hi, Thank you for writing to us. You should use adb (Android Debug Bridge) command to install the apk. Below is the link to refer:
http://developer.android.com/tools/help/adb.html#move You have to sign the apk of course before installing in an Android device.
http://developer.android.com/tools/publishing/app-signing.html Please let us know what error is reported by ADB (install command) when you try to install your apk this way. Please check in your target device whether the app is already installed (from Google play or through ADB) with a different signature. If you try to reinstall the apk that has the different signature than the one which is installed in the device, you might face this error from android installer. Message was edited by: Sujoy@Amazon
