Description Ian 2012-02-16 16:49:11 UTC
After updating to MonoTouch 5.2.4 and submitting an app to the App store, it was rejected by the App Loader because:

"iPad: application executable is missing a required architecture. At least one of the following architectures(s) must be present: armv7"

Is there a way around this in MonoTouch?
Comment 1 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-02-16 17:01:26 UTC
If you open the Project Options for your project and go to the iPhone Build Options section, click on the Advanced tab and check "Use LLVM optimizing compiler" which opens up the option to select different architecture combinations. If it is iPad-only, you can choose ARMv7, otherwise you'll want "ARMv6 + ARMv7"

Hope that helps.

That solves it, I hope it's automatic in the future?

iPad applications didn't used to require armv7, it was optional. It sounds like Apple have changed their requirements. We'll need to find a way to communicate this, or change the defaults.
