Android Question Cannot install ap


Licensed User
I've reinstalled Windows 8.1 on my PC (...and B4A), since then I'm getting error message when trying to compile and install my app on my smartphone:

B4A version 4.30
Parsing code. 1.96
Compiling code. 2.13

Generating R file. 0.46
Compiling generated Java code. 8.11

Installing file to device. Error
pkg: /data/local/tmp/Mindset.apk

Restarting ADB Server may solve this problem.
Tools - Restart ADB Server. Device serial: 4df1c2161d418f9f

Trying to install apk also fails.
No problem to Install the app on Genymotion emulator with Android 4.4.2.
I'm able to compile and install other apps on my smartphone.
My smartphone is running Android 5.1 (but it was the same before reinstalling Windows 8.1 on my PC ...)
I'll appreciate your help.

Thanks KMatle. As you proposed, removing the installed app resolved the issue.
Do you have an idea what was the cause of the incompatibility ? after all, it is the same code and environment (PC, Windows, IDE, Code ...).
