Just tried to validate an app update using xCode with the iOS 4.2 SDK and the problem with the whitespace in the app filename is back, or its not fixable using the old solution at http://developer.appcelerator.com/question/47431/problem-submitting-apps-in-140-if-they-have-a-space-in-their-name anymore.
Has anybody figured out a way to do it yet?
This worked for me.
Instead of validating directly from the Organizer, use the organizer to save your ipa to disk (i.e. click "Share…", then "Save to Disk…")
Make sure you save the file with a name that has no whitespace
Use Application Loader directly to upload your binary
Apparently a known issue with xcode. https://devforums.apple.com/message/282652#282652
I presume you have already tried the solution in the post you mentioned?
This is just a complete guess, but have you tried using the ascii code \u0020 or \x20 which both represent a space ?
For a non-breaking space, it's \u00A0 or \xA0.
It's worth a try ;)
HELLO ANYONE AT APPCELERATOR DO YOU READ THESE?????
This fault is back and now I cannot submit apps to the store to update for the fact that iOS 4.2 breaks my apps YET again!!!!
Can someone please look at this and provide some kind of solution, after all its pretty ridiculous that we keep having these issues because we put a damned space in our apps names, like 80% of all iPhone apps!
Can we have some action so we are not waiting 10 weeks on a fix!
I just had some trouble with this, and this worked:
1) In Xcode Organizer right click on the build date of the app and select "Reveal Archived App in Finder"
2) Open ArchiveInfo.plist in a text editor (i used Coda)
3) For me at line 12 it was creating the application with a space:
<key>XCApplicationName</key> <string>Example Name</string>
Change that to ExampleName and save the file.
4) Once you get back to Xcode Organizer, you should be able to go through fine.
(I just changed this http://developer.appcelerator.com/question/47431/problem-submitting-apps-in-140-if-they-have-a-space-in-their-name#92281 to work with it)
I have submitted an app doing this.
Has anyone submitted an app by simply removing the spaces? I just submitted mine and it worked but I dont want it showing up in the app store as MyAppName. I want it to show as My App Name.
Also, What Ti version and SDK are you using?
I am taking a look at this issue, unfortunately today I cannot test Validate since iTunes Connect is down, but I have submitted apps with a space in the name without any modification. I just checked and the app submitted fine with CFBundleName, XCApplicationFileName, XCApplicationName, CFBundleDisplayName, and CFBundleExecutable all having a space in the name.
We will need to pin point the issue because it seems to be random if it breaks or not.
Start by copying the info.plist file into the root of the project and edit the CFBundleName.
Then be sure to clear the build/iphone directory and rebuild.
Check the Name in the "Bundle display name" field in your info.plist file in the project. If there is a blank space fill it with an _.
Guys any luck on this?
I tried playing around with the .plist file changing my app name etc.
I changed in: XCApplicationFilename and also CFBundleExecutable then changing also the filename itself but still getting "filename may not contain whitespace" when trying to validate the app in Xcode.
