Problem Parsing The Package.

Post by Googie85 » Mon Jan 25, 2021 5:05 am

Hi Guys!

I am trying to install an app on an Android device and I am getting the error "Problem Parsing The Package". Has anyone experienced this before?

Many Thanks,

Have you installed the app previously? If so, delete it before reinstalling. Another way around it is to change the build number in standalone settings. Android won't really reinstall an identical app with the same build number. If you're using the Test button in the IDE, LC takes care of this for you.

Also make sure you aren't using the default app ID. It's tempting to use the default during testing (com.yourcompany.myapp) but Android won't like it if there are other apps on the device with that ID.
