Installing Bluestacks with Android Market Enabled

Updated on February 22, 2013

Bluestack, an emulator to run Android operating system and application on Windows PC and Mac, doesn't bundle its download with Android Market currently known as Google Play. There are other application markets bundled with it instead, such as GetJar, 1Mobile, and Amazon Appstore, but Android Market can’t be neglected as it's being the famous hub for Android Apps.

With Android Market enabled, users will also have other Google's default applications such as Map, Navigation, GMail, Places, Latitude, and GTalk. Here is how you can enable Android Market in Bluestack:

A. Download all the apk files below and install them one by one in this particular order

  1. GoogleServicesFramework.apk
  2. OneTimeInitializer.apk
  3. SetupWizard.apk
  4. Talk.apk
  5. Vending.apk
  6. Gmail.apk
  7. Maps.apk

B. You should have successfully installed Bluestack first. Do not install those 7 downloaded apk files from inside Bluestack. Instead, just right-click on each apk file, under Windows Explorer, and choose "Open with BlueStacks APK Installer".

C. Start, or restart, your Bluestack.

D. Register and connect your Bluestack with the newly installed Gmail using your Google mail account. You can't access Google Play without registering first. If you use windows browser, such as Firefox, to access Google Play (http://play.google.com), your Bluestack will be detected as T-Mobile smartphone under device compatibility checking. You should login using the same Google account you use for registering your Bluestack to do so.

E. Start Google Play and download whatever you want as if you use a real android smartphone or tablet.

For those who doesn't have Bluestack, use this link to download the offline installer (128 MB). The official download provided by Bluestack's website is online installer (8 MB). Windows XP needs Net Framework 2 SP 2 to install Bluestack, use this link to download the offline installer (28 MB).

That's all you need to do, and the following are some screenshots of Bluestack on Windows XP

      So sorry for ansewring too late. I've been away for quite sometime doing some jobs

      Make sure you have installed Net Framework 2 SP 2 IF you are using Windows XP (as I did when doing the screenshot) BEFORE you install the BlueStack master software and those 7 applications which in turn you should install in THAT particular order

      I installed the BlueStack on my own XP machine about two months before I wrote this how-to article and I'm still using it right now with no problem at all, including when "playing" the newly-promoted Facebook Home for Android

      For Mac users, sorry I don't have the answer.

      Try installing it from the BlueStack using file manager applications such as ES File Explorer.

      1. Start your BlueStack

      2. Go to application market

      3. Download and install ES File Explorer

      4. Start ES File Explorer

      5. Locate the folder where you put theVending.apk and install it using the installation menu provided by ES File Explorer

      That's it, I hope this helps

      The quick and easy method is to :

      1: install dropbox in your bluestacks.

      2: drop your apk file into your dropbox from mac/pc/phone.

      3: access your apk file from your dropbox in bluesstacks and install.

      Done. ^^ Enjoy.
