Description Steve Graddy 2015-04-18 10:24:18 UTC
I am running Xamarin Studio on a Mac (Yosemite 10.10.3), running the stable branch everything runs just fine but if I update to the Alpha branch (8.10) I am unable to run any iOS application (Phoneword for example) on simulator or device. If I roll back to stable branch all runs good again. Xamarin Studio displays "Waiting for debugger to connect..." and then just quits. Below is the message in Application Output window.

Starting iPhone 4s
Failed to launch the simulator: Could not find a part of the path "/Users/orgbrat/Work - Xamarin/Part5.Completed/Phoneword/bin/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/"/Users/orgbrat/Work - Xamarin/Part5.Completed/Phoneword/bin/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/Phoneword.app/Phoneword"".
error MT1008: Failed to launch the simulator: Could not find a part of the path "/Users/orgbrat/Work - Xamarin/Part5.Completed/Phoneword/bin/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/"/Users/orgbrat/Work - Xamarin/Part5.Completed/Phoneword/bin/iPhoneSimulator/Debug/Phoneword.app/Phoneword"".

@Rolf I believe this is what you fixed recently ? if so was it backported to C5 ?

@Steve can you try renaming your project directory to avoid spaces inside them ? The "quoting" for it was misapplied for the API being used (which is why the path looks weird).
Comment 2 Steve Graddy 2015-04-18 14:19:09 UTC
@Sebastien that was the issue. Made sure directory path had no folder with spaces and everything worked as it should. Thank you very much for the help. Is there a fix coming for this issue?
Comment 3 Sebastien Pouliot 2015-04-18 15:09:56 UTC
Thanks for confirming! I'm fairly sure it's already fixed, we just need to confirm which version is scheduled to include it.

@Steve, this bug is a candidate for the first service release (8.10.1.x).
