XCode 6.3 Crashes When Archiving Application

i0S Swift Issue

Question or problem in the Swift programming language:

I have just updated to the lastest XCode 6.3 and Swift 1.2

Now, when I try to archive our previously working application for distribution purposes we see the message “archive successful” but XCODE crashes immediately after this (where the organizer would normally open).

Anybody have any ideas?

Here are the details from the crash log…

How to solve the problem:

Solution 1:

Seems like the problem is when you have an old project with some subprojects under source control while the main one is not.

I have removed from Xcode Preferences source control completely, and it seems did the trick – now archiving works.

To remove your project from Source Control press command+, (or select Preferences from main menu) -> Source Control and uncheck all parameters.

I am following this issue in the developer forums and seems like Apple is aware of the issues.

New projects are not affected.

Answered from Xcode 6.3: Crash while archiving a project

Solution 2:

Yes, it was definitely an issue with XCODE. We could build the application just fine with commands line tools.

I found a solution that worked though;

I removed my personal settings from xcuserdata in the .xcodeproj and also in the project.xcworkspace

Reloading into XCODE after deleting these settings fixed the issue.

Solution 3:

This is a bug in XCode 6.3. If you want to keep this under source control, upgrade to XCode 6.3.1

From Release notes:

Archiving a project or workspace that is not under source control but
that contains contents under source control does not crash Xcode.

Solution 4:

XCode 9 Swift 4
if the xcode crash during the Archive please first check which Account you are using for Archive is your Apple Agreement is updated for this Apple Account?, then please update and re Archive Problem Solve

Hope this helps!
