If you don't want to do wipe data factory reset, then I can say you're really stuck with that problem FOREVER!

Dont worry doing factory reset, just back up your data and apps using titanium backup and simply restore them after doing factory reset.

When the apps from the playstore install without problem, i'd say your installer is fine. I've encountered this problem as well, but only if I was using the wrong file/wrong file extension..
