    So, I have a 4.2.2-32gb N7 WiFi only, running Paranoid Android 3.56, with a 3.1.10 franco-kernel. I downloaded an apk, f-droid to be exact onto my N7. I open it and try to install and the install button won't let me push it. The cancel button will let me push it,but no joy on the install button. I rebooted, wiped my cache, I have 3rd party apps allowed. I have tried installing by directly opening the apk and also by using some install apps from the play store. Any ideas?

    Yeah, I had tried other apks with no luck. An update came out for Paranoid Android the day after i posted this question. I updated, now apks install without issue. Thanks!

    There are some apps that overlay the screen and prevent pressing the install button. Glovebox had this issue for a while. Are there any apps that might interfere in this way? If so, try disabling them for a bit to see if that helps.

    Thank you for the idea. I put a widget on the dock. I was no idea that it would be the reason, and I was going crazy , but your idea about the "layer" was the solution. Best regards.

    If you have a Screen Dimming APP, disable it and try to install.
    Some screen dimming apps work by overlaying the whole screen with a translucent window, and letting touch events pass through to the activity below, but for security reasons, you can't interact with system dialogs (such as the package installer) through another activity.

    It sounds counter-intuitive, but it could be the cause. It's more likely than a corrupt APK file or a version incompatibility, either of which would cause an error message.
