Question can't open Google Playstore

I have a Fire tablet 5th generation, and carefully followed the directions for installing the Google Playstore from this website.

When I click on the Google Playstore icon on the reader, the screen flashes and then goes back to the home screen. I can't get Google Playstore to open. Anyone have an idea on this?

You are more likely to get an answer if you posted in the Kindle Fire forum.

Have you changed the security setting on your Kindle Fire? Go to settings/security and turn on the item that says"apps from unknown sources". Then reinstall Google Play Store app and see if that helps.

It's easy to get it to work on 5.0 and above. All you need is 4 Google apps that make up the framework.

This is the tutorial I used. Installation order does matter. If it's the new Fire 10 then use the alternative Play services for Fire 8.

I wondered about that when I did it on my new Fire 10, but the instructions specifically mentioned using the alternative Play Services apk for the "Fire HD 8 2017 (seventh generation)" so I didn't install the alternative. I've experienced no issues, though.

That's good to know someone in the thread did use the alternative and it worked too. So maybe it doesn't matter.
