If you build in debug, clang will generate a .dSYM file next to our launcher. However, it is in the wrote location (according to @Jeff) and inside the app bundle will cause validation to fail.

You can manually work around this by doing these steps.

1) Build in debug.
2) Archive
3) Right click, reveal in Finder.
4) Right click, Show Packages Contents
5) Open Products/Applications/
6) Show Package Contents on your application
7) Open Contents/MacOS
8) Delete the .dSYM file

Then you can Sign & Distribute and use the Application Loader as normal.
