    I tried to download GeoRecorder. The install failed. Yet, when ever I go to the GeoRecorder site in the Android Market it looks like the app is trying to install. Nothing is happening, but the only option I have is "cancel download".

    If I select "Cancel Download", I get the message "Sorry! The application Market (process com.android.vending) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Force Close.

    If I select "Force Close" it takes me back to "downloads" in Market.

    I am able to download other apps.

    What to do to get rid of this issue?
     



    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


      Download

    If it stalls while downloading or installing, don't cancel it. Try rebooting the phone. On start up, it should automatically download and/or install.

    Thanks. I have done that several times. It does not help.

    I re-read you original post. Are you trying to download a 3rd party app that is not from the android market?

    Yo! I had the same problem as you did. What worked for me;

    1) Uninstalled the app
    2) Used Task Killer app to kill everything.(Market, Appbrain etc)
    3) Re-opened up the market, hit up the download section(it should still show the downloading app)
    4) Canceled the downloading app and it went back to normal :D

    Then just re-install the app that got stuck. Hopefully it works for ya bud.

    Actually, I have had this happen from time to time (maybe 3 times since April). The solution is always just wait until later. Sometimes a couple of hours later, sometimes later. It just comes back on its own. Happened one time with a paid appand that's what the developer told me too.

    it has happened to me before also, email the dev it has to do with settings on the devs end. He/she won't know to fix it unless you email him/her or just wait for someone else to do it, :)

    No I am not. I am installing apps from Android Marketplace.

    Thanks but my situation is a little different. The app never did install, but it keeps trying to install. I kill Market but as soon as I open it, the app tries to download and then freezes. I can download other apps though.

    My solution is to kill market and avoid it.

    Having the same issue.
    The original update attempt seemed to just stall and NEVER complete. So I cancel the download and it causes the 'com.android.vending' stopped message.
    I uninstalled the app in question, went into the Market settings and FC'd it and then cleared the cache...then went back and tried to re-install the app - Now, at the bottom, instead of it saying to "Install", I only have the option of "cancel download". If I click on the 'cancel download', it generates the error message.

    Really getting frustrating.
