    Trying to download some of the apps i'd purchased on my PB years ago.

    BBW Account is still active, used on the BB10 Passport I refuse to let die.

    The games and apps show up in the list, but upon download I get some other app or game installed instead. Like splashtop showing up when I try to install vector runner and other similar swaps.

    It's reproducible as well. Not random swaps. Same app downloads through retrials.

    Any ideas?

    I'm guessing it's just the further degradation of BlackBerry World. It's shutting down at the end of the year, and there's been next to work done it in a while. Even BlackBerry won't handle inquiries for the PlayBook anymore. Perhaps, hit up BlackBerryHelp on Twitter and let them know.

    Are the apps that are being installed also in the list of available apps?

    Try refreshing your BBW available apps list. Go: BBW/My World/Refresh List

    Yup. Some apps are installing correctly, others seems to link to others in the list. But not just substitution between them.

    Then it's just as Bla1ze has stated above. No maintenance of BBW = MESS.

    I had the same problem. I think if your app was a paid one that has since been withdrawn from the BB store it will download something else from your uninstalled list. There is no way around it save to try to find the bar files somewhere and sideload them.
