    Unfortunately, this option is only available when a SD Card is inserted. Since 920 doesn't have one slot, am sorry to say you can't. I read it on the Microsoft windows phone site itself.

    yes, get a dev account. Download WP8 SDK and login. Use SDK tools to insert xap files and install the app.

    Everyone keeps saying there is a way to do it with SDK, but how?

    There are three ways to install an xap, but it depends where you got it from.
    1. If its from windowsphone.com, you need to copy it to an sdcard and open it (we can't do anything else with those files yet.)
    2. If its from the Windows Phone App Studio or your employer, you need to install the company certificate and then download the file from your phone's browser.
    3. If its from anywhere else, you need to download and install the WP8 SDK on a Windows 8 Pro pc and use the Application Deployment tool.

    The problem lies in the fact that when you download it from windowsphone.com, you dont have SDCard on Lumia 920 and it does not read from storage. It is big pain in the a** if you have formatted the phone or updated via NCS.

    Bit of a bump, but any workarounds for this? I've got the XAP for Swapchat off the WP website but can't install it on my Lumia 925, and it won't let me install the SDK because I've not got a Windows 8 computer.
