I am trying to install the webdriveragent after successfully installing the dependencies on my MAC book and getting the following error. Has anyone seen this before?

When trying to run from Xcode manually I get the following message:

ld: cannot link directly with dylib/framework, your binary is not an allowed client of /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/Library/PrivateFrameworks/XCTAutomationSupport.framework/XCTAutomationSupport for architecture arm64

clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)

I believe that you are probably using xcode 14. There was a change that broke WebDriverAgent in appium versions 1.XX which is used by Katalon Studio in their stable versions. You should be able to fix this by downgrading xcode to 13, user remote execution with appium 2.0, or upgrading Katalon Studio to their alpha version that supports appium 2.0. See this other forum post and doc:

Hello I am still facing this issue. Would it be possible to have a call with an engineer and troubleshoot the issues.

  • I did not assume that I would have downgrade XCode in order to use Appium I have tried various methods
  • I am currently using Katalon version 8.5.4 however when I try to install dependencies the program is unresponsive. Nothing happens. When I click on web drive agent the window pops up and I am shown the error as per the video
  • When trying to install manually I am unable to complete this due to a permission error

I am now faced with .npm installations and Katalon installed in various places on my Macbook. I think the best way forward is to have a call and work through the installation and licence provision from scratch.
