Though the method works for Windows 7, 8 and 10, but the screenshots are from Windows 10. I’m assuming that by now all of the users would have upgraded to Windows 10.
However, to run this app on your PC, you first need an android emulator. There are tons of emulators out there on the Internet, but the best of them is Bluestacks emulator and it works perfectly.
So, if you are getting bored watching movies and TV shows on the small screen, then below is a step-by-step method of downloading Showbox app on your computer with the help of Bluestacks emulator.

2. Next you have to download the Showbox APK file. Download apk from above links.
3. Once the APK file is downloaded, go to the Downloads folder or where it is located. Next right-click on the APK file, Open With and click on “Install with Bluestacks APK Installer”.
4. Bluestacks will automatically install the app. Once the application is installed, open the Bluestacks software.
5. Inside the Bluestacks emulator, click on All Apps and here you can see the Showbox android app that we just downloaded and installed.
If you’re facing this error message “INSTALL_FAILED_INVALID_APK” while installing APK then first download this “PackageFileInvalidIssueResolver” APK from here, install it on your bluestacks emulator by using the same method given above and run it on Bluestacks, after that try installing again showbox’s apk file, it will get installed easily.
