    Hi,

    I'm a PRO LICENSE owner, please help me not to give up with IOS development.

    I'm still hoping I can find the exact procedure on how to deploy xojo made ios app to the device and later to the apple store.

    The xojo youtube demo was obsolete and a lot of changes in apple has been made.

    I need some expert for help.

    Please.

    This can be a complex process. When it works, it's not too bad but when it goes wrong, it's hard to find exactly what's going on.

    Can I offer some advice and say to leave Xojo out of it for now. Get it working with Xcode first. If it ain't working there, it ain't working in Xojo.

    @Dave K It's easy enough to just learn Swift and Xcode, honestly.

    This doesn't help the OP at all. (And for particular types of apps, Xojo makes iOS development fast and simple.)

    Again, do search the forum or rather search google “Xojo iOS Provisioning profile” or the exact dialog text you posted. You WIll find an answer as there has been alot of these issues. I’ts no you, it’ts just a complex thing to do. And make sure you use the right provisioning profile (non-adhoc) for example or you will make it even more complex.

    Here is one topic:

    The docs:

    Another topic:

    Another:

    And there are many more.
    You should try to use Xcode and manage the certificates there, you can manual sync them.

    What part are you stuck on?

    I was able to follow the instructions and deploy my app on my ipad for testing, without getting it to the App Store yet.

    http://docs.xojo.com/UserGuide:Deploy_to_Device_With_Free_Xcode_Provisioning_Profile

    Build for App Store = OFF in the iOS settings.
    Select your code signing team.
    Make sure you have the right bundle identifier.
    Build

    Create a dummy project with the same bundle in Xcode and run it once.

    Plug your device in
    Choose Devices and SImulators from the Xcode Window menu
    Select your device.
    Click +
    Browse for the .app file that Xcode created.

    @Jeff T Create a dummy project with the same bundle in Xcode and run it once.

    This part often fixes things for me.

    @Gavin S This part often fixes things for me.

    ... and is one of the things that makes creating iOS apps in Xojo so frustrating of late ...

    I agree with Gavin.... The last time I had a problem building usable iOS apps with Xojo, I found that I had the same problem with Xcode.... Turned out it was a problem with with my "Apple Application Integration Certification Authority"," Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certification Authority", "Developer ID Certification Authority" certificates... see: https://forum.xojo.com/52195-my-apps-don-t-start-correctly-since-a-while/p4#p435328

    There are plenty of public Xcode iOS projects you can download and try to build.

    I found a video from youtube that direct me on the right path. Though it's not XOJO video but its a straight forward instruction based on latest developer.apple.com new web UI.

    THANKS A LOT, GUYS!
