Release .apk in android not installing

If you have installed a development version of the app with the same id, manually delete it. Since they share an id, but are signed differently, Android will not overwrite it.

@ChrisGriiffith, I didn’t install the development version. when I run the release command, the build was successful, but when I try to install on mobile, it shows app not installed. do you have any idea.

@ChrisGriiffith, finally I solved my issue. I have to set my android path in environment variables. This fixed my issue. thanks for your reply .
