        I have generated a .xctestrun file using "build for Testing" on a MacOS 64 bit application. My tests are UI tests only. I can go to terminal and run

         

        xcodebuild test-without-building -xctestrun  Application_macosx10.14-x86_64.xctestrun -destination 'platform=MacOS,arch=x86_64'

         

        It runs all the UI tests and works great.

         

        The problem I'm having is using this same Application_macosx10.14-x86_64.xctestrun on a different machine. We'd like to be able to run these UI tests on a Mac 10.12 Sierra machine. I copied the .xctestrun and the directories with the test runner and applicaiton and tests to the Sierra machine. I installed Xcode 9.2 and the command line tools. I open terminal in the directory where the .xctestrun file is and run

         

        xcodebuild test-without-building -xctestrun  Application_macosx10.14-x86_64.xctestrun -destination 'platform=MacOS,arch=x86_64'

         

        I get the following error:

         

        User defaults from command line:

            IDETestRunSpecificationPath = /Users/sysqa/Desktop/UI Tests Release/build/Application_macosx10.14-x86_64.xctestrun

         

        xcodebuild: error: Failed to build workspace temporary with scheme Transient Testing.

        Reason: Validation for test run specification failed: TestBundlePath should be provided; TestHostPath should be provided; DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH should be provided in testing environment variables; DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH should be provided in testing environment variables

         

        It looks like XCode 9.2 supportsthe test-without-building and -xctestrun options but doesn't like the .xctestrun file becuase all the things it's asking for are in the Application_macosx10.14-x86_64.xctestrun. Is there some difference between the format of the .xctestrun file between XCode 9.2 and 10.2? Is it possible to run these tests on other machines using the same .xctestrun file?
