Default [Q] SOKP APK issues

I am running SOKP D801 and I cannot install Apks. When I click on them I am only given an unzip option. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Also, I have unknown sources enabled but that didn't help.

You probably have an unzip / winrar application set as the default app for APK files. Go into Settings -> Apps, find and select the app and click the "Clear defaults" button.

It definitely sounds like a file association issue. It could be a file archiver as suggested in the quoted post or a file manager as the likely culprit. One has to be careful when they open a file type which has no association for it. If multiple apps can open a file, one must be absolutely certain which one they want handling it before making a permanent choice in the app chooser.

An incredible handset. The first smartphone I've owned where I didn't immediately replace the stock ROM.
