Starting release 5.0, embedXcode supports Xcode 8 on macOS 10.12 El Capitan.


However, some users have experienced difficulties during the installation of embedXcode.


Most of the issues seem related to files permissions.


1- Repair Files Permissions


Before installing embedXcode, I strongly recommend to open the Disk Utility and launch a First Aid.



In some cases, the previous installation of embedXcode goes to /Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates instead of ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates —under the Home directory.

 

Please delete the /Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates folder.

 

2- Fix ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates Owner


If the ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates folder may be owned by root, perform.


sudo chown -R user:staff ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates


3- Launch the Installation Manually


In case the automatic installation fails,


  • Open a Terminal window.
  • Launch the command

sudo installer -pkg embedXcode-231.pkg -target /


Please refer to Perform a manual installation if the package fails


4- Delete the Previous Installation Manually


There are two places to look after

  1. ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/File Templates
  2. /Library/Developer/Xcode/File Templates
  • Delete all the embedXcode-related files on those 2 folders,
  • then proceed with the installation again.
