Instrumented Android APK failed (Error occurred)

Post by igerasim » Mon Apr 18, 2016 4:20 pm

Hello, can not install our company app on devices. Facing following issues:

1) The APK is not obfuscated.
2) You are using API Level 8 or above. (I have API Level 17 installed)
3) No uninstrumented APK Version is installed on the device.

Using Ranorex 5.4.5.19886

System.Exception: Failed to recompile the instrumented code. See details for more information: libpng error: Not a PNG file

Hello igerasim,

Please try to remove the „1.apk“-file from the following location: “%Userprofile%\apktool\framework
After that, please try again to instrument the current version of your APK.

Please let me know if this resolves the issue.

Sincerely,
Johannes

I tried to remove, but it did not help. I tried "-static -multidex" as well, but no luck. Do you have other ideas how can I install app?

Thank you in advance,
Ilya Gerasimov

Hi Ilya Gerasimov,

Would it be possible to send the corresponding APK file to [email protected]? This would help us analyzing the issue. We could also sign an NDA if it will be required from your side.

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
Johannes

Hi Ilya Gerasimov,

Unfortunately, we didn't receive your email. Could you try contacting us again?
Please try sending the email without the attachment. Afterwards, I will send you the FTP credentials in order you can upload the APK.

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
Johannes

Hello thilina,

If you still experience the issue, please contact us directly by email ([email protected]). Furthermore, please include detailed information about the current version of Ranorex and Android. It would also be very helpful if you could send us the corresponding apk file.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
