Can't find apk-signer.exe!

Question

Hi Andreas. I downloaded the apk-signer 1.8.5 through the link in your tutorial, but I can't find the executable! Lots of folders but not the app to run. Where is the .exe supposed to be? Can you please point me the path?

I while ago I downloaded it and the .exe was in the first folder (not shure if there was more than one folder), but now I installed the JDK and the JRE, and can't find the apk-signer executable anymore. I downloaded it again and again, same thing.

Hi,

please try to make a right mouse click on the ".jar" file and choose "Open with..." and "Java (TM) Platform SE binary". Please see the screenshot attached below.

If you still have troubles, please reply here instead of scirra. It's easier for me to help you out here.

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm having the same issue. When I try to generate key, it can't find the exe file. Is there a more detailed explanation about how to fix this?

Thanks,

Hi!

There is no ".exe" file. It's a Java application. You just need to download the zip from the main page and unzip it. Then you will get the "apk-signer-...jar" file. Double click this to run with Java. If Java is not the default application to open this file, do a right mouse click on it and select Open with => Java. See image posted above.

If you still have problems, please provide a screenshot of your steps.

Thanks!

Hello Andreas,

Thanks for your help with this. I re-downloaded JDK8 and JRE and Apk-signer, thinking that I have initially downloaded the wrong version. After re-installing this, the signer doesn't start anymore - It just shows an icon of JarRsrcLoader. I can't Open With Java, as I can't find that in the available applications with which to open.

I've attached various screen shots.

Thanks again.

Hi,

that's strange. I'm using JRE 8 as well, so it should work. The tool does open, but it has problems then (so it seems in account of your screenshot). What OS do you use? Looks like MacOS? I haven't tried it on my Mac yet, only Windows.

Regards

Andy

Hi,

I was able to launch before the 2nd re-installed. I'm using High Sierra 10.13.3.

I'm actually not sure what can cause this issue, maybe it's the high resolution of the mac display. It's working fine on my windows machine. Have you any other computer to try? or a virtual maschine? The tool itself is abandoned from the original author, so there won't be any new updates, sorry.

Alternatively you can use the new google cloud signer at your Google Play Developer Console.

Regards

Andy
