Hi,

I am creating an application that checks the installation of a package and then launches the market-place with its id.

When I try to launch market place with id of an application say com.mybrowser.android by throwing an intent android.intent.action.VIEW with url: market://details?id=com.mybrowser.android, the market place application does launches but crashes after launch.

Note: the application com.mybrowser.android doesn't exists in the market-place.

MyApplication is my application.

$ adb logcat

However, when I try to launch the market place for a package that exists in the market place say com.opera.mini.android, everything works. Log for this case:

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
