Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2016-10-05 00:04:26 UTC
I'm using C8 and trying to debug this app: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=44707

If you look on its info.plist it requires OSX 10.11 but I'm running on 10.10.5 (yeah, judge me for that).

XS returns immediately from launching and registers nothing on log files or the app output window.

It should not not let me launch, it should tell me that I should not be able to do that due the deployment target restriction.

I found out the issue by running it from the shell. Here's the crash output:

application requires at least Mac OS X version 10.11.0 (10.11), but is being run on 10.10.5 ( 10.10.5/14F1909), and so is exiting.Stacktrace:

Debug info from gdb:

Comment 2 Manish Sinha 2017-08-01 19:34:17 UTC
Using I can see that there is an error when launching notifying that launch failed with pid -1

Still, the error should be caught at build time. 

Marking this bug as CONFIRMED
