I prefer to check the terminal output:

This is the message if xdvipdfmx fails for some reason:

Output file removed.

Error 1 (driver return code) generating output;
file test-xetex.pdf may not be valid.

And this is the message of a working run (with Utopia-Regular):

Output written on test-xetex.pdf (1 page).
