There are thousands of different files on your computer and each comes with a different file extension. You, and your computer, can identify the type of file by its extension. These are usually the three or four letters that come at the end of the file name. For example, myfiled.pdf is a PDF file. Files with the file extension APK are called Android package files. If you locate one of these on your computer, tablet, or other device, you may try and open it. There are often times when these files will give you problems. Here are three common ones.
The File Will Not Open Or Operate
With each file, there must be an application that is to be used to open it. A common problem when opening any type of file is with the application that opens the program, not the program itself. As you attempt to open the file extension APK, it appears as if everything will work; however, in the end the file does not open. It is possible that you may have the wrong version of the application. What you need to do is simply download the updates to the application. These should make the application support the opening of the APK file.
The APK File Is Corrupt
In your attempts to open it, the APK file will not open. You may believe that your application is out of date and take the steps necessary to update it. Even when updated, though, the file just will not open. It is possible that you have something that is corrupt. In this case, no matter what you try, the file is not going to open. It could have been sent to you corrupt or could have been corrupted during the transmission process. Either way, you will need to find a different version for it to work.
Your Operating System Does Not Have Enough Information
Sometimes you may have the correct application in order to open the APK file; however, it will still not open correctly. You may try updating your program, but you find that does not help. The problem, in this case, is that your operating system does not have the needed information to show that the application supports the file. In order to open it, you will need to direct the computer as to the appropriate program to use to open the file. It is a fairly simple process. jojoy
