Hi All!
This is a very basic question. I am not new in b4a, but sometimes I am surprized.
I made a small example program (after a lot big program) and installed and debug on an android (7.1.2) device. The package name is the simplest b4a.example.
#Region  Project Attributes
    #ApplicationLabel: B4A Example
    #VersionCode: 1
    'SupportedOrientations possible values: unspecified, landscape or portrait.
    #SupportedOrientations: unspecified
    #CanInstallToExternalStorage: False
    #BridgeLogger: True
#End Region
Then I wanted use the IDE -> file explorer but there is no my package in Android/data.
I installed after a release mode also, but my program is no in file explorer. I have another bigger project(s) what resides in Android/data.

Depends on what, where is my installed program?

thanks in advance

My filebworser on android can't show the sdcard content.
If it is the truth and my package is on that, how can I install my program not to sd card?

#CanInstallToExternalStorage: False
Set it to TRUE? But even the external storage is an internal SDCard.
If i connect my device with USB on my PC i see
Phone and Card.

My Device does not have a real EXTERNAL SDCard.
But both Phone and Card ARE internal SDCards.

Moreover this is an android TV box, PC can see nothing if box is connected to pc.
I can't use ES file explorer, because I need to my program can handle if pendrive is connected to my device. When ES file explorer is installed, it always pop-up what I don't want. And the main issue is, what is the reason, that the installation process take one package into the Android/data, and other packages takes to another place.
Ok, thank you Manfred!
