Apache Cordova/Visual Studio 2015 tools fails to launch app in IOS simulator

I am trying to deploy a simple newly created

Cordova
app on
Mac
from
vs2015
it seems that the project is build successfully but I am getting the following error in visual studio and no app is installing or running on simulator.


Starting launch process C:\Program Files (x86)\nodejs\node.exe "C:\Users\RezaR\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\vs-tac\emulator.js"
--platform ios --action launch --path "c:\users\rezar\documents\visual studio 2015\Projects\BlankCordovaApp2\BlankCordovaApp2\bld\ios\Debug\buildInfo.json"
--serverUrl http://RezaMac:3015/cordova --language en-US --loglevel warn --cliVersion 5.4.1 --npmInstallDir "C:\Users\RezaR\AppData\Roaming\npm" --deployTarget "iPhone 5S" Timed out connecting debugger to remote Apache Cordova app. See Output window for JavaScript console output.

Then I tried below as mentioned in this post

On the mac, go to
~/.taco_home/node_modules/taco-remote-lib/<VERSION>/node_modules/taco-remote-lib/
and run
npm uninstall ios-sim
&&
npm install ios-sim@5.0.4


but no chance

My Environment:



On windows:


  • Vs2015 Update 1

  • Cordova 5.4.1



on Mac


  • Yosemit

  • Xcode 7.2.1

  • Simulator 9.2

  • Cordova 5.4.1

  • Node 5.7.1


Answer

I have found the problem and solution, in case of somebody else has the same problem:

  • first run remotebuild saveconfig in macos terminal
  • Open the RemoteBuild.config file in the Text Editor from the path of the previous step
  • Change value of appLaunchStepTimout to 60000 (1 min)
  • Change value of emulatorLaunchTimeout to 60000 (1 min)
  • Save the file
  • run remotebuild on terminal
  • Run the project from Visual studio again
