      Tested on Windows 8.1 with Cordova CLI 6.0.0 (and Ionic CLI 1.7.14)

      Description

      Running command `cordova run android --release` builds the app successfully, both unsigned and signed/zip-aligned versions. However, it then tries to use the unsigned version of the APK. Here are the last lines of the output:
      .....
      BUILD SUCCESSFUL

      Total time: 31.35 secs
      Built the following apk(s):
      C:/XXXXX/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/android-armv7-release-unsigned.apk
      C:/XXXXX/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/android-armv7-release.apk
      Using apk: C:/XXXXX/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/android-armv7-release-unsigned.apk
      ERROR running one or more of the platforms: Failed to install apk to device: pkg: /data/local/tmp/android-armv7-release-unsigned.apk
      Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_NO_CERTIFICATES]
      You may not have the required environment or OS to run this project

      It has worked before I updated Cordova with 'npm install -g cordova'.

      I specify signing properties in a file 'release-signing.properties', which I copy to platforms/android/ folder. During the run/build I get prompted for the password, just as it has always been.

      I believe it is just a problem of choosing the wrong APK from the list of built APKs (Cordova probably chooses the one that comes earlier lexicographically)
