for ages i have been looking for a way to install Playstore or Android Market onto bluestacks. I had tried several methods found online, none of which worked for various reasons (File to old, parse errors and allsorts) then by accident I found this method!
Firstly I would like to point out I had google framework services installed from a previous attempt. Im unsure if this is relevant at all but feel i should include this info. If it doesnt work and you dont have Google Framework services, please download, install and try again.
These are the steps you need to add playstore/google appstore
Add your google account to bluestacks, You find this in Settings, Manage Accounts.
Download and install the APK for ADW Launcher
Restart Bluestacks, then go to apps, then select home. (It will ask if you want to use Apps or ADW)
Select ADW Launcher, now you will see Playstore or Android Market on the main screen.
Click and enjoy!
The bonus is ADW is a great launcher, like GO ex
if it works without installing Google Framework first please let us all know, thanks!
I hope it will work for you.. good luck
