I am currently trying to get a game app running in windows and got some problems. Ive already tested Bluestacks, SocketQ, Android x86, Youwave and the official Android SDK Emulator. Now I'm trying "Jar of Beans" from xda, which looks quite promising.

Anyway, I have the emulator running and the network works as well. The problem I have is that I cannot install the game app through the play store as it says, "my device isn't compatible". Android 4.1.1 is running and it has lots of RAM available (1GB I think) so I really don't know why it says it's not compatible. Is it possible to find that out somehow?

And when I try to install the apk via adb I get "install failed missing shared library".

You might have set the minimum and maximum api level in the manifests wrong. Are you the app developer? You might as well ask this in SO. – forums Mar 21 '13 at 7:26
No I'm not the dev. But since I got the apk can't I look into the manifest and change something? SO = StackOverflow? – Someguy Mar 21 '13 at 14:00
I don't know much about changing manifests, just suggesting, and yes SO = StackOverflow. Library missing also might be caused by using NDK (Native Development Kit), since your running an x86 machine, native ARM codes are missing the necessary opcodes to run. – forums Mar 22 '13 at 2:48
