    Hey guys!

    Having an issue with Bluestacks at the moment.

    Whenever I try and install the Instagram app through the Google Play store I get the error "Package File Invaild"

    How do I get around this? Bluestacks was working fine 2 days ago.

    I've tried a complete re-install and clearing the Cache and still having the same issue.

    Cheers!

    I had the same problem. I saw many tutorials in the Internet about how to make Instagram account on PC using Bluestacks but I could not download Instagram from Google Play. I tried to download Instagram installation APK file from somewhere but still could not install it.
    It seems to be Bluestacks is not working well now.

    Try using a VM with android installed on it. Makes it easy to install apps considering a lot of apk's are available online.

    Downloading the latest BlueStacks install from their website fixed that issue for myself, I think they had a looping error with a recent update or something similar that caused all the problems.

    I had the same problem when i first installed blue stacks.

    To get Instagram installed, I completely closed out of blue stacks. Restarted the program, and then searched for Instagram . Luckily it installed.

    Before that I tried old versions of the Instagram APK but but they kept giving me errors.
