Failed to install app

Every time I run my ui test locally on a IOS 10 and 9.3 simulator I am getting the following exception;

Failed to install app /xx/

ExitCode: 7
Unrecognized flag: xx/

    -u,--update-app <true-or-false> [OPTIONAL]  When true, will reinstall the app if the device contains an older version than the bundle specified DEFAULT=1
    -c,--codesign-identity  <codesign-identity> [OPTIONAL]  Identity used to codesign app bundle [device only]  DEFAULT=
    -a,--app-bundle <path/to/>    Path .app bundle (for .ipas, unzip and look inside of 'Payload')

Xamarin.UITest 2.0.0
Xamarin.TestCloud.Agent 0.20.3
XCode 8.0
Xamarin IDE 6.1 (build 5441)

Before XCode 8.0 and Xamarin 6.1 everything worked fine.

Any help much appreciated.

    @ChristopherMyhill.2964 We have identified a bug that occurs when there is a space in the app path using AppBundle:
    ConfigureApp.iOS.AppBundle("path with/aspace/")... that we are working on.

    Are you specifying an AppBundle with a path that has a space? If not, can you share your ConfigureApp statement?

    @Glenn.Wilson Thank you, that was exactly the problem I had. Removed the space and everything is back up and running.

    @ChristopherMyhill.2964 Thanks for confirming. This is fixed in the latest dev build Xamarin.UITest 2.0.0-1524-dev build.
