Re: Not able to install application

You cannot install .cod files to the Z10. It is a completely different operating system platform and is not based on Java as the old BB devices were. You have to install apps through BlackBerry World.

You can't use Desktop Manager or Apploader. All the apps that utilize alx/cod files are incompatible with the BB10 devices.
