Please download, it is the latest and greatest version

If you have any of the 0x89xxxx errors, please download the attached "" file and run it.


attached you'll find a new XAP installer which has quite a few unique selling points.

- In-place update on the phone: In-place update on the phone, e.g. if you already have Version of an app installed on the phone and install an in-place update will performed. No more full "uninstall-new install" cycle required. Your settings, custom files etc. won't be removed (same as marketplace update)

- CoreCon2 based, e.g. Phone Dev Tools are no longer required for application deployment!

- Deploy from file or URL: You can either specify a file or an URL. If you enter an URL the installer will automatically download the xap.

- Own protocol "wphome": Zune's one-click download for homebrew apps. Automatically install homebrew XAPs with a click on a hyperlink. If you want, you can register the application for the wphome protocol. The application will then be allowed to handle urls like and will automatically start as soon as you click on such a link.

To be able to use "wphome" hyperlinks, you have to click on "Register protocol..." once.

wphome Testlink: wphome: (for testing after you've installed the tool and registered it for the protocol)

After you've opened a XAP file, details will be shown in the top bar.

This is the first step in my plan to provide a homebrew marketplace.

Updated V0.6 - 1-APR-2011

+ Full Log
+ Multiple tweaks, bugfixes

Updated V0.7 - 2-APR-2011

+ CoreCon2 based, e.g. Phone Dev Tools are no longer required for application deployment![*]
+ Drag'n'Drop support. Just drag and drop any xap from explorer to the tool.
[*] You need a working CoreCon2 installation. If CoreCon2 is not installed on your pc (normally only installed with the Phone Dev Tool) the tool will detect it and download a small installer.

Updated V0.8 - 2-APR-2011

+ Fixed "No addional data: Could not extract XAP file" Bug
+ XAP-Information is show much faster now
+ CoreCon2 Installer now online. You won't need the full Phone Dev Tools for this XAP Deployer

Updated V0.9 - 6-APR-2011

+ Selected Target will now be automatically saved
+ Deploy-Menu for XAP files. Registers a file handler for *.xap and provides a "Deploy" menu entry in file's context menu.

General Prerequisits
- Phone has to be unlocked (either dev, chevron or any other method)
- Zune has to be running and has to be connected to the phone
- Windows Vista or Windows 7, according to users: Windows XP

@diboze: Can you provide a xap which doesn't show info? (XNA Apps might not show an image but name, description, version & author should always be shown)

"Done" means -> Deployment finished

The app does currently not check if the Max Apps limit is reached. Therefore done means either "deployment finished" or "could not deploy because max apps is reached".

UPDATE V06 - 1-APR-2011:
- There is no "Done" anymore. You have a full-fledged activity log now.
- Max App error is now reported in log

I'm going to assume that in order to successfully deploy, you still need the Windows Phone Dev Tools installed, right?

Otherwise, it's a really great looking and convenient app. I look forward to more updates.

Can you send me the log (as seen in the third screen shot) or copy&paste it here?

ChevronWP7 unlocker doesn't work on NoDo. In order for this to be useful beyond a niche number of users, there needs to be a way to easily unlock the phonse so that XAPs can be deployed.

I see no mention of that in the OP.

Why list a good app on that for free (if it's not free it will get pirated with the XAP being there for everyone) when you can just list it on Zune Market place for 99 cents and make some money. For responsible adults the fee to join the developer program isn't that bad.
