Description Ben Beckley 2016-10-27 20:15:10 UTC
I am trying to deploy the WatchNotification sample from the ios-samples repository to a watch simulator, but I am getting the following error

I checked that location for the file on my Mac, and it is indeed there.

Repro Steps:
1) Open WatchNotification sample
2) Set Notification Simulation File to PushNotification Payload in WatchKitExtension properties
3) Try to deploy to Apple Watch Series 2 (Notification)
4) Observe error

This is not reproducible with XVS (de55d19/d15-3), the Notification Simulation File field is not present for this sample.
