I downloaded a XAPK file from apkpure.com and uploaded the XAPK file to Headwind MDM web panel.

However the application is not installed on my device - XAPK installation is not working.

When I'm installing this XAPK using APKPure installer from their database, installation is working well.

To diagnose the installation error, turn on logging and click "Refresh configuration".

You will get the installation error in Functions - Logs.

The most common installation error is the following:

Install failed: INCOMPATIBLE, extra: INSTALL_FAILED_NO_MATCHING_ABIS: Failed to extract native libraries, res=-113

This happens when the application contains native code (C/C++) and the XAPK has been built for the wrong architecture.

Note: there are two common architectures for mobile devices: 

armeabi-v7a - legacy architecture for cheap devices;

arm64-v8a - 64-bit architecture for modern devices.

Despite the most modern devices are running ARM64-V8A, most APK and XAPK are built for armeabi-v7a by default. 

If you're downloading the app from apkpure.com, click "Versions" on the app page:

Then select "Variants":

You will get links to APKs for different processor architectures:

Select arm64-v8a and download the correct XAPK.

Note: before uploading this application to the Headwind MDM web panel, it is recommended to remove the previous version!
