Why am I getting HTML files instead of APKs when using Samsung WiFi Direct?

I have a question about Samsung’s WiFi Direct sharing option. The first I did it there was no problem (a bunch of apps as APKs transferred).  Today after I chose a few apps, all I received was a HTML file.  Any ideas why?

Thanks :)

    I figured it out....the receiver has to have Unknown Sources unchecked.

      wifi direct, one of the android devices should be seen as a server to the other. if they are both trying to be servers then will not work. Try to turn OFF/ON the wifi and re-establish the connection. if thus not work then try the mentioned application to see if at least file is transfer correctly.
