Expo XDE unable to start iOS simulator

#1

Hi guys,

I’m not exactly sure but I suppose this problem started showing itself after I updated Expo XDE this morning. Everything was working fine except some glitches while debugging but now I’m completely unable to start simulator from XDE. Here’s the error message:

Error installing or running app. Error: Command failed: osascript -e tell app “System Events” to count processes whose name is "Simulator"
28:69: execution error: System Events got an error: AppleEvent timed out. (-1712)

Sharing works fine and project runs on my device without problems.

Any idea why this happens?

The problem is solved by restarting the computer.
