Ad-hoc OTA distribution install error

Go To


I have created an ad-hoc distribution ipa file along with a plist file and uploaded it onto a website. I have then navigated to the website and clicked the download link. It pops up saying: would like to install "myApp"

So I click install.

It then reverts to the home screen to show the icon and the progress bar of the download/install.

Once the bar has reached c.3/4 it then shows another pop up saying:

Unable to download application

"My App" could not be installed at this time.

Any thoughts on what is going wrong here?

you have to check your provision profile or destination file path folde - Hiren 2012-04-04 07:25
how and where do I do that - Ben Thompson 2012-04-04 07:46


For completeness..

I had migrated my project from one laptop to another during the build and had forgotten about it. I had therefore migrated all my profiles but not my private and public shared keys in keychain. Ultimately. I have to delete all certificates and profiles and start again from Keychain.

Actually, once I have decided to start all over again, it was probably only 15 mins to a full distribution profile working. Not bad considering the number hours scratching my head beforehand. But still - Apple...surely you can think of a more slick way of allowing us to test and distribute apps?????
