Hot on the heels of my installAPK utility to let you install APKs from your Windows desktop, I now have another neat trick... which allows developers to distribute APKs as Windows EXE files instead.

What do I need?

NSIS install system - http://nsis.sourceforge.net

APK2EXE (my suite) - http://shortun.com/3q

Your APK

What does the end user need?

The end user needs their device attached to their PC, with the appropriate drivers installed (which they can grab from http://android.modaco.com/usbdrivers).

How do I use it?

Follow these steps to create your executable!
  • Extract APK2EXE to a new directory
  • Add your APK to the directory
  • Doubleclick APK2EXE.NSI and edit the 3 lines containing information about your application.



  • Right click the NSI file, and select 'Compile NSIS Script' - this will create your install EXE





  • Test your installer!

Done!
