I have created an Android APK file in Eclipse.
I have saved it on my public web server and I have created a file with a link to the APK file.

But when I try to download the file using a browser in the Android emulator or on an Android phone I get page cannot be found.

I have tried on a couple of different phones and in the emulator with the same error.

I have successfully downloaded the file on an iPhone, but this is of no use.  All this was doing was proving the link to the apk file is correct.

Anyone have any ideas about what I could be doing wrong, or things to check?



RE: Download APK

I guess it has nothing to do with Eclipse but with your browser. Any proxy involved?


RE: Download APK

no proxy involved


RE: Download APK

In case anyone is interested, I had a response from android pit (I think) which solved the problem.

I had to add the MIME type for apk files (application/vnd.android.package-archive) in IIS and then the download worked.
