    Unfortunately there is no quick solution that I know of. StackOverflow has many, many posts on this exact issue for people also using Xcode. It is frustrating, but only Apple can make the process better.

    Sometimes the only thing you can do is revoke and remove everything and start again.

    If you're building for iOS I've found that specific app provisioning profiles don't work. Use a generic wildcard profile instead. "*"

  4. Hello Paul,

    I followed the above steps using a wildcard profile and this time I was able to build and test it on my Iphone which I could't do before but, so no error on build but as soon as I turn on build for the app store I get the same error:

    FWIW I never was able to use a wildcard.
