Why am I not getting a .dSYM file when I build my iOS app?

BrienKingBrienKing USMember ✭✭

I have an App the has been submitted to Apple Play Store that they are failing because it's crashing on startup.

Works fine here so I need to get the .dSYM file so I can figure out where it's crashing. I have the crash report from Apple, I just need to figure out how to generate the file.

Using VS2019 on Windows, paired with a Mac for builds. Latest version of Xamarin.

I do an Archive of the App in Release Mode

In the build Log I am seeing this:

Directory "bin\iPhone\Debug\" doesn't exist. Skipping.
NoSymbolStrip Output: False
NoDSymUtil Output: false

I have to be missing something simple to get it to give the symbol file.

Any Help is greatly appreciated.

    This is happening to my client as well, dSYM packages are generated on a Mac, but never transferred back to the Windows build machine.
