Can't add iOs SDK in preferences -- solved

Post by raugert » Fri May 22, 2020 3:39 pm

I have a new MacBook Pro with OS Catalina, which I am trying to configure with all my certificates etc. for development. I am trying to add iOS SDK in Livecode 9.6.0 DP2, but when asked for the file location, I cannot "show package contents" to get to the correct directory. (Right-click doesn't work like it used to in older OS). I can get the package contents if I use the Finder (by right-clicking), but can't seem to get it in Livecode file "ask" window.

It sounds pretty simple but I'm obviously missing something...

thanks for any insight,
Richard

Hi Richard,

isn't it enough to just locate Xcode.app int he dialog?
LC will then search the app package for any iOS SDK in it.


Best

Hi Klaus,

Indeed, in the past I could just point to the Xcode app and it would find the SDK, but I think I have found the problem. The Xcode version I had installed was the newest version 11.5 which uses SDK 13.5. It looks like it is not yet compatible with LC 9.6 RC2 .

I have installed Xcode 11.4.1 and it now finds the required SDK (13.4). Sorry I should have checked this first..

thanks,
Richard
