I have some devices attached to my PC. Now I want to install Astro to a specific emulator. Unfortunately, I get this error.

hieund@hieund:~/Downloads$ adb install "Astro File Manager 2.5.1.apk" -s emulator-5554
too many files specified; only takes APK file and verifier file

the -s should be before the 'install'

Seems like an whitespace problem in the filename. Either remove or escape them.

Have just tried it. Sorry it doesn't work. – Emerald214 Apr 27 '12 at 6:09
Yes, correct. If the path contains white spaces, then you will get this issue. – user58125 Apr 9 '14 at 5:37

It generates this error when there is only an emulator attached.

EOCD not found, not Zip
file 'AstroFileManager2.5.1.apk' is not a valid zip file

I realized that the AstroFileManager apk has problem. I downloaded a new one from xda and it works. Done.
