XAP Apps, how can we get them on the devices?

Hi,

After using AB to create files for Windows Phone 7.1 and 8 through Cordova Apache. I used windows Phone SDK for generate XAP files How can I get files on the devices?

Like *.apk is single file. What is Windows Phone 7 & 8 single file name?
Thanks.

Re: XAP Apps, how can we get them on the devices?

Hello edunt,

Really I can't help you, since I do not have a Windows Phone device at this time nor the environment ready to play with Apache Cordova. Maybe this article can help you? Installing Downloaded Apps (XAP/APPX) on Windows Phone 8.1. I want to buy at least a Microsoft Lumia 550, not to expensive and capable to run Windows 10, which, if I am not wrong, is also a posible Apache Cordova target platform. Then I like to made some tests on it. Please tell me if finally you got it edunt.

Hi David,

I successfully installed Windows Phone SDK  7.1 and 8 on my Windows 7 OS x64. Though it involved little bit tweak on Setup file before installation on Windows 7 OS.

I was able to run Cordova Apache CLI from AB to create *.apk for Android and Windows Phone 7.1 & 8 XAP files for Windows Phones.

Hello edunt,

Sounds good. As I say above I really want to get a Microsoft Lumia 550 to try with Windows Phone too, in that case try with Windows 10. I am not sure how to proceed, but wanted to ingestigate it.

Happy New Year David,

The web link you provided did not help. Later I will share or make video tutorial on how to set up environment for Android, Black Berry, iOS, and Windows Phone.

The issue now is copying XAP files into Emulator.

Re: XAP Apps, how can we get them on the devices?

Hello edunt,

If the article I linked don't works, maybe it's due to the Windows version in which is based. However, I want to imagine that we can simply copy XAP files into our phones and then execute and install it from there, in a similar way than Android and the APK application's files. If this does not work, maybe the phone need to be "hijacked" in an Apple similar way or something like that? Is very funny how some companies try to protect us by not allowing us to do what we wanted...

Hi David,

Hmmm, "hijacked" or you mean "Jailbreak". Perhaps I will upgrade to Windows 10 later maybe it will ease installation. Regarding some company not allowing us to do what we wants on what we paid for. It will continue because everything is about money money money money not like showing of talents and skills anymore. Really sad.

Hello,

Yes; maybe "Jailbreak" is the word. I can't imagine Microsoft do not allow us to execute whatever we wanted, just like we does on Windows.
