    This error shows up when you try to inspect an app that already has Reveal Server framework integrated, but it's out of date from the version of Reveal you use. It simply means that you have updated Reveal since last integrating Reveal Server into your app.

    I'll need to know the following in order to help you with this problem:

    • What version of Reveal did you previously use when you integrated Reveal Server into your app?
    • Which method did you use to integrate Reveal Server into your app? Did you follow one of the methods from the Integration Guide?

    I'll be looking forward for your reply.

    Best regards,

    Hi Guillaume,

    If you're using CocoaPods to integrate Reveal Server, and previously used an older version of Reveal 2+, you simply need to execute the following command in your project directory to upgrade it to the last version: pod update Reveal-SDK.
    This is briefly mentioned in the CocoaPods integration guide.

    Best regards,
