Issues with Appium Desktop 1.5.0

I upgraded from Appium Desktop 1.4.1 to 1.5.0 today, and afterwards, Appium failed to install my apk file. The error I’m seeing is posted below. Anybody else having this problem? I reverted back to 1.4.1 and it went back to working without any issues. My config is:

Appium Desktop 1.5.0
Running on a Mac
Automating an Android app via Emulator
Using uiautomator2

Yes, I did. I had the same problem but running on a real device. Downgrading fixed the problem for me as well.

Can you try 1.5.0 again if you have a chance? I republished it. There was a mistake in the build creation process that cause that error.

I downloaded the updated 1.5.0 and now the apk installs. Thanks for the quick fix :slight_smile:
