Hi Tim,

Thanks again for that. 

I meant to say that did NOT use any terminal command to create the project, I just ran the CMake app. I mean I didn’t even use the ‘terminal' app for that.

So, I tried now what you suggested, and in my case, after running xcodebuild -list, a long list of targets appear, but none with the text “check” in it. I’m utterly confused on what to try next.

Then ran the CMAKE app (not from the command line) with the default settings other than also adding the ‘experimental’ targets, and boom a fully functional XCode project was created, so I gave no further thought on that.
