    Default Cant click install when installing from SD Card

    So all of the sudden, I cant click install when I am trying to install one of the apps that I have saved on my SGT. Its been working fine all day and it just all of the sudden stopped letting me hit install, I can hit cancel just fine though. I have made sure unknown sources is checked, I have rebooted several times, and I have even done a factory restore twice with still on luck. I am rooted, but it was working fine earlier so I am not sure what the problem is.

    Any ideas?
    Thanked by:

    After doing alot of research I finally found the problem. I use an app called Screen Filter to dim my screen brightness when I am doing late night reading, and it was for some reason not letting me click the install button. Once i stopped using it, I could install apps with no problems. I have emailed the dev to see what he says. Might help some others so just letting everyone know.

    You mean you downloaded an APK file to the tablet and are trying to install it, right? Try installing with a file manager, like Astro. When you click on the apk in the file manager, it should give you an option to install.

    I had to do that when i downloaded the apk for the live wallpaper from the Asus Transformer. I couldn't install it from the download folder, but when i opened it up in Astro, it allowed for an option to install it from there.
