First install Bluestacks from http://bit.ly/bstkdnldpage If it doesn't install your graphics card is ancient or you're trying to install it on a VPS. If it installs OK, go through the intro crap and the home screen should look more or less like, but without the apps installed: Now the important part. If you try to install Instagram through the Bluestacks app search, Instagram won't work. Repeat: INSTAGRAM DOES NOT WORK THROUGH THE BLUESTACK APP SEARCH. Instead go to: http://www.androiddrawer.com/6935/download-instagram-3-2-0-app-apk Download the Instagram APK, after it's downloaded, click on it to install it to Bluestacks. Open it from the Bluestacks main menu, and follow the registration procedure, voila magic you have an IG acct: To make uploading to Instagram easier, I suggest you also pick up http://www.androiddrawer.com/7130/download-es-file-explorer-file-manager-1-6-2-2-app-apk ES File Explorer while you're at AndroidDrawer. Then when you hit the IG camera button, you can chose File Explorer: and navigate to /sdcard/bstfolder where you should see some familiar folders from your computer: Any images you put in any of these folders on your computer will be accessible from your Bluestacks and thus uploadable to Instagram. Enjoy folks!
