Loading NSImage with imageNamed from xcassets crash in older osx versions

So, I have an xcassets that is shared amongst quite a few apps. I’m developing with Xcode8 in a Mac Mini with MacOs Sierra installed in it. If I compile and run in the development machine, there’s no issue at all. However, when I try to run it in a device with OSX Mavericks I get a crash. Here’s the trace in the report

If I remove the image from the xcassets and include it “individually” in the app’s bundle -by dropping it to the app’s project navigator- it loads just fine. But I’d like to avoid this if possible, as it’s cleaner to have shared images in just one xcassets.

  • Empty Settings Bundle in Xcode 4.2
  • Drawing a line between two points using SceneKit
  • Reading a RTF file and parse plaintext
  • Tabbing between Xcode projects?
  • Compiling simple Hello World program on OS X via command line
  • linking std::experimental::filesystem with Xcode 9
  • Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I could bypass this error by following this workaround provided by Apple for iOS 7 devices:

    To work around this issue, update the deployment target to iOS 8.0 or
    higher, or add a single image to the asset catalog that has at least
    five attributes specified across the image set, such as: scale (1x,
    2x, 3x) idiom (add iPad,iPhone, and a universal asset) direction (left
    to right, right to left) width/height class (any & compact, and so
    forth) memory (add a 1 GB asset) graphics (add a Metal 1v2 asset) It
    is not necessary to use the image in your code or to add all of these
    attributes. (27852391)
