I get this error when I try to upload the App package to the App Store.
IPA is not valid. It doesn't include payload directory
What's up?

Notwithstanding, your message is slightly opaque.

Thank You Richmond,
I could use a case of those right now. I have been chasing this error message for about 5 days with little to no help from this forum, StackOverflow or Apple.

Well . . . 2 ticks after reading your message I put "IPA is not valid" into Ecosia

https://www.ecosia.org/

and got this at the top of the list:

(StackOverflow, no less!)

Sorry Richmond,
That doesn't work either.
I built the file, Copied the info.plist to the desktop, edited the info.plist file to include the Appplication requires iPhone environment statement. I then built the app again insuring that before it was signed the corrected info.plist file was added to the package.
Same error message upon upload attempt.

Here is my info.plist file copied from the delivery package.
Had to take screenshots.

Hello Tom,

How did you create the .ipa file?

And what does it contain?

(you can rename the .ipa to .zip and extract the .zip to see its contents)

Kind regards,
Panos

Hi Panos,
With finder I located the "The Other 50.app" built by LC. Right clicked and selected "Compress", Right clicked the Zip file and clicked rename. Renamed to "The Other 50.app.zip.ipa"

Hi Tom,
I use AirLaunch to make an .ipa file but you may try "The Other 50.ipa" for your file name.
Best regards

Hi Jean-Marc
Please tell me where to find Airlaunch.

Hello Tom,

I do not think that creating an .ipa as you described will work.

Please follow the instructions in this lesson for creating the ipa file:

Kind regards,
Panos
