Comment 1 renan jegouzo 2016-03-01 14:42:07 UTC
it's a sandboxed app (icloud)
Comment 2 Chris Hamons 2016-03-03 18:57:40 UTC
I'm glad you were able to test out the alpha build of Xamarin.Mac. There was a bug related to iCloud keys that was fixed after your build was release, that may fix this. 

However, your bug report does not contain an example / steps to reproduce, so I'm unable to validate it.

One thing to note is that you may have invalid strings in your entitlement file, which can cause crashes on launch such as yours. 

One way to check is to open your entitlement.plist file in "Source" mode. At the bottom of the pane (normally middle of screen) you can see "Entitlements and Source" buttons. Or you can use an external test editor.

Since CloudKit, the strings related to iCloud need to prefixed with iCloud. You can try temporarily removing your iCloud keys to see if that "fixes" the crash on launch.

I've also noticed that you appear to have a business license. While you are welcome to file raw bugs, specially in the case of Alpha builds, you are also eligible to open tickets at http://xamarin.com/support. You may want to consider doing that in the future.

the same entitlements plist is working in my swift test

it still crashing with the last update:
Xamarin.Mac Version: (Business Edition)
Comment 4 renan jegouzo 2016-03-04 17:09:46 UTC
even if I remove all sandbox/icloud parts in the entitlements.plist the app crash
Comment 5 renan jegouzo 2016-03-04 17:34:36 UTC
