Description Jonas Sourlier 2013-01-30 04:11:51 UTC
We have two info.plist files, one for the Lite version of our app, and one for the Pro version. A "Before Build" Custom Command copies the relevant file to replace Info.plist, so that the right file is used for the build, for example, the Lite build has the following pre-build command:

cp ${ProjectDir}/Info_lite.plist ${ProjectDir}/Info.plist

However, MonoDevelop seems to not re-load Info.plist from the harddisk. If we're building the Pro version first, and then switch to the Lite configuration, it immediately stops with the error

Project bundle ID 'ourcompany.ourapp.Pro' does not match specified provisioning profile ...

But the bundle ID in info.plist is 'ourcompany.ourapp.Lite'. So, MonoDevelop does not reload info.plist from the harddisk, because it "thinks" it hasn't changed. No matter how many times we're invoking the build command, it always complains about the bundle ID being wrong.

Our solution for this is to open info.plist in MonoDevelop, change something, change it back, save the file, then build again.
