Parse Error when trying to install .apk files
alright so i just got an HTC desire Z running android 2.2 and am attempting to install .apk files with no success,
I tried to download two .apk files on my phone with the default browser and with dolphin browser and both times when i click the file or try to install it with an installer program i get the error message "Parse Error: There is a problem parsing the package". I have tried to redownload the files many times.
searching online i found one response where someone posted that the files weren't fully downloaded, and to download astro and to "enable browser downloads" which i did and still no luck. I did notice however that the .apk files kept being completed at around 100 kb which id think means they probably arent fully downloaded cause theyre around 10 mb each :s
I also noticed that when i look at the bar near the top of my phone where notifications are i can see my recently used apps and "Package Installer" appears, and when i click this i receive the same message. unknown sources is checked.
I'd appreciate any help as Im going nuts right now, Thanks!
also i dont think theyre will be much traffic coming to the desire z board can i post this in any other board because the problem i think is with the software, thanks
