Description Jonathan ANTOINE 2017-09-11 12:23:31 UTC

I build from Visual Studio 2015 (up to date) with the latests up-to-date xamarin plugins.

I have an iOs app deploying fine on my device.
I created a todays' extension and referenced it from my main project.

It deploys nicely on the simulator but when I try to deploy it on my device, I get this error :

	Tool exited with code: 1. Output: ditto: can't get real path for source '../../TVST.iOS.TodayExtension/bbab0075a4479dbc3ffaa583c620852f/bin/iPhone/Debug/device-builds/iphone8.1-10.3.3/TVST.iOS.TodayExtension.appex'	TVST.iOS.UI	C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets	1518	

I noticed that, on disk, there is no "/device-builds/iphone8.1-10.3.3" folder with files in it.

Thanks for your help.

IIRC this might be an issue we had if the "device specific build" option was not the same for both the extension and main project (which should be fixed in an upcoming release).

Can you check the project options of both the main and extension projects, and see if this is the case (and if so, change them to match; you can either disable or enable both, that's your choice).
