If I install same application second time with additional resources in it then the new resources are merged in the resulting app file.
I dont want to merge but overwrite the resources.

Is there any arguments that I can specify in setSimulatedApplicationLaunchArgs or other methods , which would allow me to do so?
Or is there any provision in "iPhoneSimulatorRemoteClient" framework?
Thanks in advance.

I’ve seen similar issues when running from Xcode.app, are you seeing the same issue when running your app from Xcode.app? If so, I doubt there’s much we can do about it, besides rm -rf the application directory from ~/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/x.x/Applications/YourApp.

Thanks alloy, for prompt reply.
Today I wrote a shell script to find my resource folder in ~/Library/.../Applications/MyApp/resource . and remove it with custom argument to give develper directory and sdk version.
But if framework had already a method than it would be a big relief from such patches.
