    Hi Stepp

    Quick update - have re-downloaded and converted the .apk, but same log when I go to install, so it would seem to replicate an issue in the conversion somewhere.

    I've connected to my z10 with a different sideload tool (DDPB) and I get the same result on install, so everyone reading should please note that this doesn't appear to be an issue with the install part of this tool, and is most probably my setup here. I'm trying to find the signing keys I used to have installed when I was writing, so it's probably those...

    Mr Schuh, if you'd like either the apk or converted bar for research, do just let me know.

    I found that I wasn't running the installer in Administrator mode. Let the prog crash, go to it's folder, right-click on Update.exe and select Run As Administrator. That should solve that for you.

    The tool signs the app with it's own signing keys. Click "Refresh signing keys" in the "Convert" tab and try it again.

    Convert feature works like a charm.
    No problems so far, up and running.
    Amazing tool, now it's complete.
    Kudos to the OP.

    cool!
    http://bb10bars.net/images/posts/heading.png

    I want to announce the new all-in-one sideloading tool that I've been working on the past months. I know there are existing tools out there that work great, but they are all missing a nice and easy to use GUI. This tool combines all the steps you need to get an app onto your PlayBook, Z10 or Q10 in one application. You can search and download BAR files, install BAR files onto your device and convert Android APK files into BAR files.

    http://bb10bars.net/images/posts/install_convert.png

    Info

    Here's a little preview of what you can expect:
    The start screen shows a minimalistic dialog that allows you to drag & drop .Bar or .Apk files into the tool and it will instantly install or convert it:


    Easy to use
    If you are familiar with the process of converting or installing apps, you will be happy to hear that:
    • You can add files via drag & drop
    • You can use all features for free
    • You do not need to install the BlackBerry SDK
    • You do not need to register for codesigning keys
    • You do not need to install debug tokens
    • You do not need to use any command prompt window


    Some of you guys will be familiar to the icons, you might have seen them before on bb10bars.net. That's because I'm hosting the site and it's deeply integrated into the tool. You will be able to search for apps directly in the application and, if available, the tool will download and install the app for you automatically.
    Screenshot: Searching for apps


    Download

    Open Beta has been started
    You can now download the latest release! Grab the installer from one of the links below:

    That's it for now, I will keep you informed about further progress.

    Great application, really speeds up the process thank you!
    One question, not sure if it's possible or maybe I haven't figured it out yet.. Once I download an .apk can I drag it into the application then let it convert and install without having to do any more touches of application? At the moment I drag the apk into the application, it converts then I must drag the converted file back into the application again to install it.

    Hope this makes sense!

    Thanks for your feedback! You are right, at the moment you have to convert and sideload with two steps. I might add this feature with the next update.

    Slick ....... especially if I can get it to work for me. No problem seeing device, etc. It's doing something a little weird to me in making the call for signing keys (I refreshed signing keys a few times with the same result).

    NOTE:
    1) Yes I am on a network system .... however ..... I don't understand where/how the call is being made for the .csk on the server.

    2) I was set up to convert and sign .apks using the apk2bar_HaTaX.bat and signbar_HaTaX.bat. I had keys issued from BB, BB Webworks, JAVA-SDK, AIR, etc. installed. I had converted & signed several apps for my own use. All of a sudden last week - problem signing apps ......... I've tried a number of things to get everything back working. No luck, I could not identify where the problem was. Anyway, if I can figure out what's making the call for \\ABCDSERVER\FolderRedirection\john.doe\Research In Motion\barsigner.csk ...........I think it would allow me to use this converter/sideloading solution. This is a much more efficient and simple tool.

    Thanks!!!

    Go to settings and select a valid folder for your downloads. It should be something in your user directory.

    This might be a problem caused by your network system. The call is made by the tool when copying the csk and db file to the directory that the BB SDK will look for.

    Code:
                Dim path_appdata As String = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData) & "\Research In Motion\"
    
                If Not My.Computer.FileSystem.FileExists(path_appdata & "barsigner.csk") Then
                    path_appdata = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.DesktopDirectory)
                    path_appdata = path_appdata.Substring(0, path_appdata.LastIndexOf("\"))
                    path_appdata = path_appdata & "\Research In Motion\"
                End If
    
                My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyFile(getDataFilePath("barsigner.db"), path_appdata & "barsigner.db", True)
                My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyFile(getDataFilePath("barsigner.csk"), path_appdata & "barsigner.csk", True)
    You could try to start the tool as administrator to give it access to that location or figure out why the files was not stored in Environment.SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData, which should be \\ABCDSERVER\FolderRedirection\john.doe\AppData\Lo cal\Research in Motion\
