    Question Overdrive on NT: What am I doing wrong?

    I want to read library books on my Nook Tablet, in order to do that I have to install Overdrive. I have had no problem installing overdrive on my PC and on my Ipod touch. However, I am not having any luck with the Tablet. I go to the Overdrive web site and download the Android version. It downloads but when I try to install it I get the message that it was able to install and I should archive it and then unarchive it. In order to archive it I have to find the downloaded file somewhere. I go to library, my files, my downloads, and there is nothing there.

    I'm sure it's something simple I'm doing wrong but I can't figure it out. Assistance SVP.

    What you are trying to do is called side loading because you are loading an app from outside the market. You must allow "unknown sources" to do that on an unrooted Nook Tablet you need to access the menu by following this link and then checking the unknown sources box.

    Thanks for the quick response. The TGPS_launcher.apk is not at http://comptonsoft.com/test/ any more. Now you get
    AppMenu.apk (Looking for TGPS_Launcher? Use this instead.)
    When I download this file I have the same message I had with Overdrive. I did a search for the TGPS launcher and when I find it and download I get the same message. One site indicated that Google no longer allows this app.

    Got it - used the Aldiko app instead. Then the Overdrive install went well.
