I'm not able to instrument my iOS application

Post by tomwolf » Wed May 08, 2019 1:22 pm

Hello everyone,

I've been testing on Android emulator, but I also want to test on real Apple devices (or Apple simulators if possible). The problem is that I'm not able to do that at this moment. I've been searching al over the Ranorex forum for a solution, but the only thing I could find didn't work. My developer has also made a ceritificate adding a .p12, password and mobilearchive, but this also didn't work (for the errors see my attachments). I'm also currently using the IPA file from the App Store, but I think this shouldn't be a problem. <-- if this is the problem, what should I use otherwise?

What could be the problem?

Detailed description of my system:
Windows 10 Enterprise
Ranorex 8.3.3
RxServiceApp Distributable 3.0.3 on iOS

If there is anymore information needed, I would like to hear!

Hello tomwolf,

The error you are receiving is because of the IPA encryption which is not uncommon with apps downloaded from the app store. I recommend obtaining a copy of the IPA from your DEV/QA. If an app is obfuscated you will not be able to instrument. You can find more useful information in our user guide here - https://www.ranorex.com/help/latest/web ... ment-apps/
