sample Xam Mac project

Setting code signing in a Xam.Mac project prevents the project from running in MD on either debug or release mode. Unfortunately, MD logs don't provide any useful information and there is no visible error displayed when the project does not run.

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Open A Xam Mac project in MD (I have attached a Xam Mac project).
2) Double click the project, enable code signing for debug and release configurations.
3) Attempt to run the solution with the debugger, without the debugger, and in release mode.
4) Application output pad pops up but the application fails to run.

Environment Details:
xam mac - 0.9.21

Currently unable to reproduce, and no update provided in over a month. Flagging as resolved invalid.
Comment 2 Nischal 2013-03-01 09:50:33 UTC
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:

X.S 4.0 - 1c3e943ebec6a7d6e695af9f7a1808ac5bafdb21
Xamarin.mac 1.2.25
Mono - 2.10.11 (mono-2-10/2baeee2)

And we observed that we can not check/uncheck Code signing option under project option for debug/release mode. So we are not able to reproduce this issue in case of debug mode. however in case of release mode after adding correct provisioning profile we can run the application successfully.

Changing the status to Verified.
