Description James Clancey 2015-04-10 15:11:54 UTC
Since we only support Xcode 6.2 right now, I had "Xcode 6.2.app" in my applications folder. I specified it in Xamarin studio as the iOS SDK location. You get a build error when you do this. You can see it looks like someone is manually concat a path rather then using Path.Combine

Error MT5309: Native linking error: clang: error: no such file or directory: '"/Applications/Xcode 6.2.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneOS8.2.sdk"/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/PlugInKit.framework/PlugInKit' (MT5309) (CoinFlipWatchKitExtension)
Comment 1 James Clancey 2015-04-10 15:12:17 UTC
To work around this, I had to remove the SDK location and rename the Xcode file to be Xcode.app inside of Applicaitons

This could be an issue with the space in the directory name.
Comment 3 Sebastien Pouliot 2015-04-13 14:54:09 UTC
or the quotes - that could break Path.Combine

Please attach a full build log (include `-v -v -v -v` in the Additional mtouch arguments) so we can be sure where this string originates (and the code path it followed).
