Hi Cody,

I have tried to reproduce this issue with XVS 4.0.1.69 and XI 9.4.1.20, but I am unable to reproduce it at my end. I am successfully able to build iOS application with custom build Configuration having parenthesis "AppStore(Production)".

Steps:
1. Created iOS application in VS 2015
2. Added a custom build Configuration "AppStore(Production)" by right clicking over solution and selection 'Configuration Manager'
3. Build the solution with "AppStore(Production)" 

I am successfully able to build iOS application with custom build Configuration having parenthesis.

Please let me know if I have missed any step to reproduce this issue.
