Default NFC not working

Hey guys i checked threads and didnt find a solution did find some threads talking about it but no good answers.
Problem is i have a z1 and a z ultra whenever i try to send them both any file from my note 3 or s4 the sony phones open up play store.
I did some research to check what was missing and i came out on: com.sec.android.directshare well i has.an idea what that is but could not find any apk which contains that. I bought SuperBeam thinking that would fix it but nope. Anyone has the missing file for me?

I've never used NFC, but could it be the "ShareApplication.apk" (system/app) that is responsible for this? Have you deleted any system apps/files?

I have no idea. I don't even know if it works on mine I guess you'll have to wait until someone else sees this thread.

Huh, can't find it on mine either, which is incredible strange. Sony couldn't have forgotten to add an important service like this one, could they?

Could you upload it here, so people could easily get it if they need it?

DONATE TO ME
Thinking about it I had problems receiving a file from another Xperia (cant remember what model), just did nothing, but NFC tag reading worked fine.

I hace received files from a Nexus 5 now that I'm on 4.4.x

Samsung make it that you cant use NFC with anything but Samsung devices
