    No you can't do that. APKs are designed to run on the Android platform, which uses a modified JVM called Dalvik. The compiled code is in 'Dex' format. Plus all the runtime framework libraries are specific to Android.

    Yeah, your only option might be something like Bluestacks if you want to run an Android .apk on a Windows machine.
