Description Ian 2013-10-22 18:24:29 UTC
I upgraded my MacBook Pro to Mavericks. When I ran studio, It asked where the Simulator app was, even though the simulator appeared. I selected my ~/Applications/XCode4 folder.

Now when I try to run an app, it appears in the simulator for an instant, then crashes and X Studio says,"The simulated application quit."

I am thinking that perhaps I need to re-tell X Studio where the simulator is. How is that done, if that is the issue.

As far as I know Xamarin Studio will never ask you where the simulator app is, I believe you got some sort of Xcode dialog.

That said, you an tell Xamarin Studio where Xcode is in Xamarin Studio's Preferences -> Projects/SDK Locations/Apple -> Apple SDK.

Also please include the full version information from Xamarin Studio's About box (click the Show Details button to view it).
