iOS Question

ld: file not found: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

ld: file not found:

/Users/MacBookPro/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/Social_Events-cfnteabiivwfdzcoulzznhmgobhy/Build/Products/Debug-iphoneos/Social_Events.app/Social_Events
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)


I'm stuck with this error for the past hour.. Any solutions?
Code worked fine in iOS 7 and xCode 5.0. Now for iOS8 it gives me this error.

Using frameworks:


  • CoreTelephony

  • Mapkit

  • Facebook.SDK v3.20

  • Foundation

  • CoreGraphics

  • UIKit Framework

Answer

You might be getting this error because you renamed your project and the Tests cannot be found anymore. This is easy to fix:

Solve it in Xcode like this:

  1. Select your project in the project navigator.
  2. Select the YourProjectTests under targets
  3. Under General tab change the Host Application from the drop down
  4. Build and run.

Screenshot

This problem happened to me because I renamed my project and the tests could't find it anymore.
