Description John Miller [MSFT] 2016-06-14 13:54:20 UTC

   After updating to Cycle 7, there is a warning message building an iOS project. Example:

> Could not find a part of the path 'C:\App11\App11\obj\iPhone\Debug\ipa\Payload\App11.app\

This appears to related with copying the .app bundle back to the Windows machine: 

// Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets
<!-- Clone the compiled app bundle into the IPA's Payload directory... -->

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   1. Create a new iOS Single View project in VS
   2. Open the Project -> Properties and check the Builde IPA package in the iOS IPA Options menu
   3. Make sure it's connected to a Mac agent
   4. Build the project for a iPhone configuration

**Actual Results:**

   There is a warning message in the Errors panel.

**Expected Results:**

   No warning message.
   The path in the warning does exist, so I am not sure which part is not valid. However, the .app directory is empty in that path.

**Build Date & Platform:**

   Cycle 7
   VS 2015 Update 2

**Additional Information:**

   The .app does appear to be copied to the Windows machine successfully.
