    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?

    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.

    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, :)

    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.
