Description kenny goers 2011-10-26 12:50:59 UTC
I get the following error on start up after a successful install, if I re-install problem goes away, can someone explain when the installation tool can't figure this out?

No log is left of the "crash".

The "Permission denied" is likely the issue - but how this happened would be part of earlier log entries.

Unless we can have a test case to replicate this we will need to compare the upload/installation and execution logs for both a working and a failed case.

You can execute from a terminal window:

/Developer/MonoTouch/usr/bin/mtouch --logdev


* upload/install and execute a failed attempt, copy/paste the log and attach it

* upload/install and execute a successful attempt, copy/paste the log and attach it
