    Not sure what app you're trying to install or what issues you're having as you haven't mentioned it but here's how to install from SD.

    First, the file must be .xap

    1. Put .xap file on your SD card
    2. Go to Store and then select SD card
    3. When the file is found then it will install automatically if it's a free app

    If the app isn't registered with the MS Store I don't think you can install it.

    @ N_LaRUE actually, you can install any .xap app as long as your phone is developer unlocked. Otherwise, devs would never be able to test their apps on a real phone

    However @rkwap are you sure that its a .xap file? If its just an app you found online, it may not be.

    Well it looks like you answered their question.They need to developer unlock their phone if they want to install an unregistered, picked off the web .xap.... sounds like a great idea.

    My instructions had nothing to do with developer unlock, just standard installation.

    You just need to setup an account with App Studio for free. Follow the instructions and that's it. I've provided a link as you. I personally think you should avoid putting on a 3rd party app on your phone if you can't sort this out. You don't realise what the threats may be. Anyway good luck.

    Get this: Preview for Developers | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United Kingdom)

    That's why I gave you the above links. If you can't understand what you're doing, don't do it. I'm sorry but I won't be saying more. If you can't sort out how to do this with all the information I provided then you shouldn't do it. Besides, there's every possibility that 3rd party app won't work on the phone.

    I don't know why I'm bothering.

    You say you have GDR3 which means you installed the preview, this means you phone is developer unlocked. It's the only way to have a L620 and have GDR3. So your statement at the front of this thread is false. You clearly have no idea what you're doing.

    The instructions I gave to install off an SD card (second post) should enable you to install the app. If you cannot install the app then I would say that the file from 'somewhere else' isn't a proper app and you should just move on. It has to be a .xap otherwise it will not install. If you know anyone using this app maybe get them to help you as I'm at a loss as to what you're doing wrong.

    The .xap file must be in the root directory of the SD card as well, not in a folder, in case you're doing something that silly.

    You don't need software to side load. Also this person didn't even realise they had a dev unlocked phone.

    bro you don't need to dev unlock to get preview. You just need a appstudio account. Even your phone had update 3 you still need to download sdk and register your phone to sideload appzz and gamezz

    Dude stop wanting to do things you don't know anything about if you have no motivation to find it out yourself.

    Can't you see that going 'help me' constantly reeks of leaching? It's pathetic.

    What do you mean by 3rd Party apps? Every app on the windows phone store, except those from microsoft are third party apps

    I think no one understood what you asked for. You cannot install any .xap file that's not for windows phone. If its from a competing platform, it will not work.

    You need to download the WP8 SDK, that will install Visual Studio Express and the necessary tools. One of the tools is for developer unlocking your phone, you'll need your Microsoft ID that you used as the primary account on your phone. Here is the best place to start:

    Windows Phone Dev Center

    You want the top two downloads on the above page, you'll also need this to sideload the .xap file:

    Windows Phone Power Tools - Home
