Xcode 7 beta 2: LaunchScreen.storyboard could not open document

I am getting this error on two different Macs (iMac and Mac Book pro). No idea why people can’t reproduce it but I need some help.

enter image description here

  • “no such module” on Xcode 7 beta 2
  • How can I run the iOS 7.1 Simulator in Xcode 7.0 beta 2?
  • Xcode can't see objects added via Cocoapods
  • Swift- MKMapkit view only one city?
  • Undefined symbols for architecture i386 using libsqlite3.dylib with FMDB Xcode 7 ios9
  • Error: Use of unresolved identifier 'kCGBlendModeMultiply'
  • I am running Xcode 7 beta 2 (23 June ’15) on a Mac running OS X Yosemite 10.10.4.

    Can’t even compile and run my project..

    I created a single view application project from the create menu, and that’s it.


    I tried to delete and re-add the storyboard file (also the Main.storyboard cannote be opened) and I still get the same message. This is the crash report:

    This worked for me on El Capitan.

    Go to


    and remove the profiles in there.
    Restart Xcode and it should work!

    For Yosemite users try the following:

    • Open up terminal

    cd Library

    cd Developer

    cd Devices

    rm -rf *

    Also, you can always type ls to list the files and directories. There may be another folder such as Profiles on your machine. Not sure since I only did this on my Yosemite machine that wasn’t having issues.

    Restart Xcode, clean, build etc.

    Use sudo if there are any permission issues.

    Go to your Target/General and fix the Deployment target. I hope that this helps

    Open the LaunchScreen.storyboard in text mode and look for any anomaly.

    You can also remove it and create a new one as you only have the default UIViewController inside.

    1. Clean Project
    2. Clean derived data

    Wait for reindexing files
