    Thank you so much for your time !
    And nice video guide !
    Cheers !

  16. Once it again ti depends which version of the app you downloaded perhaps. (there could be a WP7 and a WP8 version etc.); besides that I have no idea, sorry.

  17. Suhotro Majumder

    Thanks for the reply. But the problem is I can install the apps directly from my phone using Marketplace (Say Facebook for windows phone). But after uninstalling it, can’t install the same app from PC through App Deployment. Do you think one can’t deploy xap files which are manually downloaded from windows phone website? Is there any other legal website to download xap files? Thank you once again! :)

  18. Hey, that probably means the App you’re trying to install isn’t compatible with your phone (maybe it’s a WP7 only app) or requires a certain screen resolution etc.

  19. Suhotro Majumder

    Hey..Thanks for the video. But I’m having a problem. A have done each and every steps properly. And I have a registered unlocked phone. Then I’m downloading Apps from the Windows Phone website, and when I’m trying to Deploy the app, it’s showing “XAP file invalid”. Can you tell me what is the problem? Thanks again for the video !
