IOS app deployment on IOS version 14.5.1

Post by SHENOSUJ » Fri May 07, 2021 4:32 pm

Hi,
We are trying to deploy an IPA file on the latest version of iOS 14.5.1.

But whenever I do so , I get the following error
Ionic.Zip.ZipException: Cannot read that as a ZipFile ---> Ionic.Zip.BadReadException: Bad signature (0x4F44213C) at position 0x00000000
at Ionic.Zip.ZipEntry.ReadHeader(ZipEntry ze, Encoding defaultEncoding)

at Ranorex.Plugin.Mobile.RxIntegration.Instrumentation.IosWorker.Run()
at Ranorex.Controls.Instrumentation.IosResultPage.bgw_DoWork(Object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)

Is it know why this could cause an issue with deployment?
I use Ranorex version 9.4.1 currently.

Best Regards,

Hi,

I think you should try it with most recent Ranorex 9.5.1. But even this version may not help, because iOS 14.5.1 is pretty new and was released AFTER 9.5.1. So it may not necessarily be updated with required 14.5.1 changes. Just give it a try.

Hi ,
Thankyou for the reply.
I did try this today with the Ranorex version 9.5.1 and iOS version 14.5.1 but I end up with the same issue.

In that case, generally how long does it take for Ranorex version to be upgraded to be compatible with iOS version?

Best Regards,

Hi,

I really don't know that. I would suggest you to contact Ranorex support, via support form available here:
https://www.ranorex.com/support-query/
It may not really be a 14.5.1 issue, but something app specific? So I guess they will request access to the IPA file?
