Enabling iOS App testing on my own iPhone

Post by turbolaserguy » Wed Sep 18, 2019 12:56 pm

Hi,
I have successfully installed the right version of Xcode along with LiveCode Community.

Now, I want to run my LiveCode projects on both my iPhone Simulator that comes with Xcode and, (I’m excited) on my own iPhone SE!

But the current LiveCode Tutorial says that I need to register as an iPhone developer. But when I follow the link, there’s no “Join” button.

What should I do?

Hi,
You need a iOS certificate and profile.
Some information about it here:
https://developer.apple.com/support/certificates/
Best regards

turbolaserguy,

Maybe this link will help. I used it a lot to help me make certificates and profiles.

I 've been following the LiveCode lessons page's instructions DR white has provided, but when I follow the link to the Apple Developer site's Certificates, Identifiers and Profiles page, I get this message:

Access Unavailable
This resource is only for developers enrolled in a developer program or members of an organization’s team in a developer program.

Then I followed this instruction:
https://wellnessliving.com/knowledge-sh ... anization/

but that didn't work (the same message). What should I do?

Now I'm trying this instructions:

https://livecode.com/how-to-create-a-fr ... g-profile/

In Step 8, when I connect my iPhone successfully and choose my iPhone in the popup menu at the top left of my project window, I'm stuck with this error:

(Red dot) Failed to create provisioning profile.
The app ID "com.icloud.furukawa.takaaki.Stack" cannot be registered to your development team. Change your bundle identifier to a unique string to try again.

What should I do?

The first messages are saying you aren't enrolled in the Apple Developer program so you can't create profiles and certificates. Usually this means paying the $99/year fee, but there's a way now to enroll in a free account. I don't know how to do that though.

The LC error means you don't have a valid certificate. So you need to pay the developer fee or find out how to enroll for free.

Edit: I just noticed the app ID you used. You can't register an Apple domain as your ID, it must be something unique to you. You are trying to use app ID "com.icloud.furukawa.takaaki.Stack" which is an iCloud domain and belongs to Apple.

You need to create your own app ID. If you have a web domain, use that.

I have successfully downloaded a certificate and saved a stack as an iOS standalone.

But when I drag & drop the app into the Devices window of Xcode, I get the following message:

The executable was signed with invalid entitlements.
The entitlements specified in your application’s Code Signing Entitlements file are invalid, not permitted, or do not match those specified in your provisioning profile. (0xE8008016).

What should I do?
