Description Alan McGovern 2011-09-30 07:40:39 UTC
Nischal was just getting himself set up with apple to run tests on device and he hit this error after he thought he had done everything he needed to do:

No installed provisioning profiles match the installed iPhone code signing keys.

It turns out he hadn't run the provisioning assistant on apples site and he had no provisioning profiles. When we detect this scenario, we should tell the user to go to apple and get their provisioning profiles set up. The existing message isn't entirely helpful.
