Getting Google Playstore on PC

Postby Zambo » Wed Aug 14, 2019 3:21 pm

Have tried using Bluestacks and it crashed PC, also ARC Welder and apk files etc, but I fucked that up.

Anyone know of a nice easy straightforward way. I'm trying to get an app on my PC which is currently only available for iphone and android (Appstore and Googleplay), but believe you can still do it.

Stop immediately and go for a walk. Nothing good will come of this.

I know you're right Ghost, but it just draws me in. I need to conquer and vanquish this noobness. :?

Using an emulator is the only way, if it keeps crashing your system there will probably be something up with that, have you done the usual like uninstall your anti-virus suite, make sure your GPU drivers are up to date, use the latest version BlueStacks ?

Failing that there are plenty of emulators, some appear free some not, what app btw?

??? shouldn't have to, says they are ioS emulators for PC's but I think it maybe your machine if more than one emulator is crashing. Didn't you buy a new one lately?


I have BlueStacks running on a laptop for my lad who likes or liked playing mobile games, is that what you want to do?

Well there you go, shows how anti-techy I am. Saw ios and immediately thought that can't be compatible with a Windows PC

Will get new PC before Microsoft stop updates for 7.

Just looking to download a couple of apps which are not available for PC, although one is supposed to be coming soon.
