             I have downloaded and installed Xcode in the past and I didn't have any problems with it until I uninstalled it, came back a few months or so later, and reinstalled it today.

             I redownloaded and reinstalled Xcode 9.2 but that always crashes on startup. There is a crash but I'll simplify what it says.

        The file xcode/Xcode.app/Contents/PlugIns/IDEInterfaceBuilderCocoaTouchIntegration.framework is missing

        I have downloaded XCode 9.2 & 9.1 from https://developer.apple.com/download/more/


        I'm not sure why when I open up the .xip file, XCode is created without the .framework file. It was fine when I downloaded it in the past, perhaps I got rid of the wrong files when I attempted to uninstall XCode 9.2, forgot the directories for what I deleted though, I remember I deleted ~/library/Developer/
        Should I try using Xcode for 10.13.6 on 10.12.6 and edit one of the files so it takes in macOS 10.12.6 instead of 13?

          I just realized that the actual damaged file is


          or the IDEInterfaceBuilderCocoaTouchIntegration under the IDEInterfaceBuilderCocoaTouchIntegration.framework file.

          I went to go check and yes, the .framework file is existent and so is the IDEInterfaceBuilderCocoaTouchIntegration file which is an alias file. So I'm concluding that the file could be damaged. Won't bother to try on XCode 9 because that'll take too much time out of my day downloading and unzipping 5 gb files.


          According to console, it says the library


          is not loaded. I checked xcode and directory doesn't exist, i inputted it into finder, doesn't exist, and I tried ~/Library/Developer/PrivateFrameworks/CoreSimulator.framework/Versions/A/CoreSimulator

          as well and got nothing.

            I have the same problem, and am getting the exact same error message. I prefer to stick with Sierra 10.12.6, for a variety of reasons. So, I figured I'd download and reinstall XCode 9.2, which is the version that is best calibrated to my computer's operating system.


            However, when I download Xcode_9.2.xip, I can't even open it: ArchiveUtility informs me that it is not an Apple product (note: I downloaded it from the Apple Developer "more downloads" site). I am stymied.


            I am using a MacBook Pro, 9,1. 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7, 1TB Solid State hard drive, 16GB RAM.


            All ideas will be greatly appreciated.

                It is apparently an expired Apple certificate issue. Might try resetting the date on your mac to before Oct. 24, 2019, long enough to try unpacking/installing again.


                Still no joy, you may want to start your own thread so you can better track, close if solved, etc.


                Good luck.
