I have an ios app, compiles and run fine in IDE and bridge, then compiles and installs fine (again via bridge) when selecting "Build Release App". But then clicking on "Download Last Build" does nothing - no error, no file, nothing. Using Hosted Builder.

Thanks

The way it should work is like this:
1. You make a release build and wait for it to complete.
2. Click on Download Last Build.
3. You should see a message saying "download..."
4. The ipa or archive.zip will be downloaded to the objects folder. Check it.

OK Erel, I really need your help. A couple years ago I created a beta-test in b4i and this part was extremely quick and easy. I do not know what I am doing wrong. When I say "Download Last Build" it is silent... no notifications, but it creates a tmp.zip file in objects. I have added screen shots to show you the file layout. There is no ipa file. There is a file with no extension that I renamed to .IPA and tried installing it on a couple other devices (udid is in provisioning profile) and it seemed to install (using OTA) but just displayed the grey box - clicking on it does nothing. Can you think of anything I am doing wrong here? Thanks so much.

compile.txt has the output from when I build the release app.

My build configuration has full,release in it

At some point, it started writing the IPA file to the folder... I think it was a permissions issue but nevertheless I am back in business.
