*Reported by user*
When attempting to deploy the Xamarin Store App from Visual Studio, the project fails to deploy to the iOS Simulator. Deploys successfully to iOS simulator from Mac Build Host.
*Steps to reproduce*:
1. Load the Xamarin Store App solution.
2. Change the Startup Project to the .IOS.
3. Set the Build options to use the iPhone Simulator.
4. Build the project.
5. Attempt to deploy the project to iOS simulator.
Instead of a successfully deployment, ends with a Remote build step failed error message.
The reported user found noticed that the button-image.png file was different from the other resources listed under the
After pointing to the button-image.png file in the Share\Images folder, the xml changed to:
And the project was deployable.
Please always include the version information of all the software being used.
Sorry! It's the current stable version of the software, which I can list below:
Xamarin Studio: 188.8.131.52
I ran into this bug also (on the alpha channel).
Microsoft Visual Studio Premium 2013
Version 12.0.30110.00 Update 1
Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.5.51641
Xamarin.Android 4.12.02001 (a1e3982a)
Xamarin.iOS 1.10.47 (3d6a125d)
It seems that the iOS app doesn't handle resources that have been added as a link rather than copied to the resources folder. The frustrating part is that there was no indication of what the error was. Here were the symptoms I got:
In the Visual Studio output window:
1>Exception System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.
1>Exception details can be found in the log file
In the log file at ~/Library/Logs/Xamarin/MonoTouchVS/mtbserver.log
[09-Apr-2014 11:26:09] Error: An error occurred (no details available)
I had no way of troubleshooting this error. Thankfully Allie Miller of Xamarin support pointed me to this bugzilla. The app is working for me now using the workaround (removing the linked resource and adding as non-linked).
This is a duplicate of bug 17852, which is in version 1.12 https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17852
