App failed to compile, DX execution failed

Everytime I try to export my app I get an error and it says that it is because of the DX stage and not my program. I have a lot of layouts but my aia size is much less than 10mb so i am really confused. I also have no extensions in my app.
Here is the log message i get:

thanks for any help!

your error message is DX execution failed
this is a very general error message and therefore it’s hard to say, what might be the issue in your case
however there is SteveJG’s monster list of tips and tricks you can check for possible reasons…
good luck!
let us know, what you find out…

Thanks for the response!

I have no clue since I have no errors but I’ll list some aspects of my app:
-I have 2 screens one of which contains many many vertical and horizontal layout’s, 100+ layout’s
-no extensions

  • the screen with many layout’s has a lot of blocks, about 15000.
    -works fine on companion just can’t export to phone or pc

If you would like to see my AIA I need to send it privately. Thanks for any help!

15000 Layouts maybe thats the problem.

you also might want to simplify your blocks…

its 15000 blocks and 100+ layouts. My app size is less than 10mb but thanks I get what you meant.
I will look into it.
