Description Cody Beyer (MSFT) 2016-09-27 18:02:23 UTC
# Description

Currently, if you attempt to deploy an iOS app to a simulator/device which does not support the selected architecture, the app will fail to launch with no log message written to the output window

Within the iOS Simulator log, an error which states:

>Program specified by the service does not contain one of the requested architectures

Though finding this may be a bit of a needle in a haystack. If this error could be written to an application output window, or if the mismatch could be trapped prior to deployment, it could lead to a cleaner experience

# Steps to Reproduce

	1. Create a single view iOS app
	2. Set supported architectures to x64
	3. Deploy to iPhone 5

# Desired Results

Either trapped when attempting to perform step 3, or a subsequent failure written to the application output

# Actual Results

App attempts to launch and fails

I can confirm that behavior, seems like a valid request.

Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2016-09-30 18:01:06 UTC
While not *exactly* the same request as bug #43886, it's effectively the same idea just with a different Info.plist key.
