Description Frank A. Krueger 2012-09-21 14:00:04 UTC
I receive the following text from Apple when trying to submit my app:

Invalid Signature - the main app bundle iCircuit at path iCircuit.app is signed but the signature is invalid. Refer to the Code Signing and Application Sandboxing Guide for more information.

The app builds successfully with all my certificates, and entitlements, and provisioning profiles. (See log below.) I have even regenerated all my certificates to make sure they weren't old...

Comment 1 Neal 2012-10-17 12:54:59 UTC
I'm getting this too, any suggestions?
Comment 2 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2013-10-14 06:17:11 UTC
Can you run this from a terminal:

codesign -v path/to/myapp.app

it might say if/why the signature is invalid..
Comment 3 Frank A. Krueger 2013-10-14 11:59:05 UTC
This was fixed, afaik, with the release of Xamarin.Mac. Honestly, I haven't updated iCircuit since then so I can only assume it will work now.
