I'm trying to write a code to install an apk on SDK1R2. I read your posts on 
google groups, and copied the code like below. but the code doesn't work. Did I 
miss anything? Thanks. 

 public void insAPK() {
    Uri data = Uri.parse("file://sdcard/an1115.apk");
    try {
        Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
        intent.setDataAndType(data, "application/vnd.android.package-archive");
    } catch (Exception e) {
        Log.e("insAPK", e.getMessage());
