  3. In the Import an application into the XenMobile MDM database dialog box, click Choose File.
  4. Select the file and click Open.
  5. In the APK parameters section, enter the following information:
    1. Select the Execute APK File option if you want the app to launch immediately after is it installed on the device.
    2. Select After Installation if you want to prevent deleting the installation file from the device when the installation is done.
    3. In the Destination folder section, select the folder where you want to upload the installation file. Only Flash Storage and Device Manager Installation folder are available as a path prefix for Android devices.
    4. In the If the file already exists section, you can specify what to do if the file already exists. You can copy it if the files are different or do not overwrite the existing one.
