Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed on this bug
tracker over the years. Thanks also for your understanding as we

Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
If your "assembly name" (Project Options -> Build -> Output) has a period '.' character in the name, your deployment will fail in non-obvious ways, and even removing the offending character will sometimes not fix things (you have to reset the simulator).
Steps to Reproduce:
New MonoTouch Project
Note it works.
Project options, Build -> Output.
Change Assembly Name to Foo.Bar.
Note utter failure.
I get this when trying to upload:
Installation failed: AMDeviceInstallApplication returned: 0xe8008001
error MT1006: Could not install the application '/Users/rolf/Projects/test/bin/iPhone/Debug/test.app' on the device '': AMDeviceInstallApplication returned: 0xe8008001.
it looks like it's some sort of Apple restriction. Maybe MD can give some sort of warning when dots are used in executable names?
this should really be in mtouch
I already get a warning in MonoDevelop:
"iOS executable name should be alphanumeric, or it may not run"
I dn't see that warning in MonoDevelop 3.0.2 (just tried). Where is it?
However, our users modified the project in a text editor an thus didn't get this warning from the IDE. It should get promoted to at least a run-time "hey we failed to deploy due to this" or build failure.
If you rebuild your project, the warning should show up in the errors & warnings pad.
We have 100's of warnings in our solution (with 20+ projects). A simple warning seems pretty terrible (why doesn't the failed deploy tell me what is wrong!). This should be promoted to an error at least.
Rolf, Let us make this an error.
Fixed to be an error (md-addins: 6568c5ced).
