    There's only one way to do that, that I know of. But I've never done it myself. You'd have to find a Lumia (not sure if it's limited to Lumias) or other windows 8 phone that can roll back or update to the TH2 release with the build version that includes the astoria libraries and code (Linux subsystem). I think there's obviously more to it than that, but from there you'd be able to run apk apps.

    I regularly test (my)Astoria on my HTC One M8 for Windows.
    What build/release is your M8 for Windows running?

    Thanks for the info. I researched and found something not too different from what you were saying

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/win...obile-t3173000

    Basically you have to revert back to 10240 and then it'll work. There are some risks, and I actually can't figure out how to revert back to the most recent build without losing all the sideloaded apps. I think you have to saty on 10240 for it to work.

    I might try it later.
