Wouldn't do any good if it could either. Android apps run on Dalvik (which no version of Windows has built in) and on the POSIX-based Linux kernel (RT doesn't even have the NT POSIX subsystem anymore).

The answer to this question is exactly the same, for exactly the same reasons (and therefore should be exactly as obvious) as asking whether you can install Windows Phone .XAP files on iOS. NO!
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
