Using CHMOD to prevent iOS crashes on a simulator

Issue: The Verivo application instantly crashes when being launched in the iOS simulator.

Resolution: The sim file does not have the correct permissions to be executed by the simulator.


The Fix:

  1. In the sim_<app> folder (located at User/Library/Application Support/Applications), explore the application content by right clicking on the package and selecting "Show Package Contents"         


     2.  Find the Unix Executable file in the folder. This file is usually named after the application



      3.  Run the following command on the unix executable to give all users execute permissions:

                  chmod a=x <File Location of the Unix Executable File>


     4. Relaunch the iOS simulator and try launching the application.
