How to download * .xap?

Basically, this sequence of actions is needed by Opera users. If you still can not download - use Internet Explorer.

1.Left-click (as usual) on the link to * .xap, wait for the page with the advertisement to load.
2.Right-click on the resulting link, in the drop-down menu, select "save as ...". Wait the proposed 10 seconds is not necessary.
3.If necessary, change the extension of the downloaded file from * .scr to * .xap.

All the games that I installed from * .xap, "want" to be updated in the Marketplace. What should I do?

First of all, be aware that the games installed from * .xap are pirated and you will not receive official updates.
Marketplace shows the availability of the update because there really is a new version of the game. Error while trying to update occurs because Marketplace checks for your account in the list of those who bought the game. Naturally, he is not there, because You did not buy the game, but installed it by illegal means. Therefore, the system gives an error and does not allow you to download a new version of the game.

This problem has three solutions:
- buy the game and get updates officially;
- find and install * .xap with the new version;
- ignore notifications.

Encryption of applications inWindows phone store


Any program or game that is published now in the Microsoft app store is automatically encrypted. Existing applications are also subject to this procedure. These Microsoft actions are aimed at reducing the level of piracy.
This information is listed in the official Windows Phone developer blog:
http://blogs.windows.com/windows_phone/b/w...-questions.aspx
The first information about the introduction of encryption appeared in November 2011, but Microsoft developers most likely waited until all smartphones were upgraded to Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, where full support for this technology appeared. Given the rejection of Zune, all applications can be encrypted.

The recent update in December 2012 of the Windows Phone Store not only expanded the application store, but also introduced a new ability to download XAP files and install them further via an SD card. Detailed installation instructions -How to install the application from the SD card?
Prior to this, the XAP installation was officially supported only on unlocked smartphones of developers and then - with certain restrictions. Now the only restriction will be the availability of a slot for SD-cards in the smartphone (applicable only for smartphones with operating system WP8)
How this happens on WP8 can be found in the video example:

Important for WP7:
Applications downloaded from the Windows Phone Store cannot be installed on WP7 smartphones due to the fact that the XAP obtained in this way is encrypted !!!
