    WenyanZhang-MSFT, the error message is as noted above: "Publishing Failed. The Target ValidateAppStoreBundle does not exist in the project."

    Xcode version is 13.4.1. I am unable to run Xcode 14 yet since .net Maui has not bee updated to work with the newest version.
    Visual Studio for Mac version 17.4 (build 1583). See

    Error occurs when trying to upload to App store after Archiving from VS. I note that I can deploy to Appstore from the command line by building withdotnet publish -f:net6.0-ios -c:Release and then uploading with transporter.
