Since Windows 10 Mobile 10536, it's not possible to both run or install Android applications.

However, with the new tools in the attachment "WindowsBridge.7z", it's now possible to do that again.


Steps:

1 - Extract (using latest WinRAR or 7zip, for example) the contents of the attachment somewhere;

2 - Copy everything from the extracted "Tools" folder to the folder where you currently have the wconnect tool;

3 - In your phone, go to developer settings, enable "Device discovery", and choose "Unpair all" to remove previous pairing info;

4 - In your PC, make sure no process called "wconnectsrv" is running (use Windows Task Manager), and then use the new wconnect tool, and pair the phone again;

4 - In your phone, uninstall current Android applications;

5 - Reinstall them using the new wconnect tool, in the same way you did before;

Troubleshooting:

This method only enables installation with proper registering of Android apps.
If the application opens showing at least one screen, but crashes somewhere else, it's related to the Android Subsystem.


When trying to install an application, adb could return [DELETING_EXISTING_APPLICATIONDATA_STORE_FAILED] .
In that case, restart the phone, and try again


Best regards

What is the error message you receive?

I tried with the ppsspp emulator and it is not working, installation is ok, but after the "preparing" screen, it closes

Have you tried any another application?

Thanks, it works!

But doesn't Project Astoria support lollipop apps?
They show INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK error (e.g. Facebook Groups)

Couldn't install apps with API 21 or greater, only for api 19 (kit kat).

Possibly because they all use Google play services which is bit tricky to push... There were some tools that were stripping Google play from apps, but by that functionality goes down as well...

Unfortunately, I seem to be stuck at the connection stage with "Error Code - 6."

Thus far, I've tried:

wconnect.exe usb

wconnect.exe usb PINCODE

wconnect.exe 192.168.X.XXX

wconnect.exe 192.168.X.XXX PINCODE

And it results in the same error each time. I'm wondering if one needs Windows 8.1 64-bit version in order to successfully connect. I'm running 32-bit.

Anybody have any insight on this? :confused: Willing to experiment! :good:

    I'm trying to do this in a virtual machine, so I'll give it a whirl to see if it truly is the "false positive" he claims it to be.

    Update: This file doesn't do anything. I'm still getting Error 6.

    Everyone having this issue, try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/win...ile/guide-deploying-astoria-packages-t3214481.

    Most likely you've either hard reset or upgraded from wp8.1. Microsoft took the Astoria wim out of the latest updates.
