I Tunes sync failed to install

May 17, 2012 10:46 AM

I have been trying desperately to figure this out and cannot. I'm testing a simple two button app created using Flash CS5.5 publishing to AIR for IOS, I get no errors, the adl playback is fine, my trace statements work yet when I drag the .ipa into Itunes I see it in my app section, soon as I go to sync I get the msg


I Tunes Sync


appname failed to install.


Very very frustrating as I checked every possible thing I could think of, errors in the actionscript etc.


anybody ????????

    Is the Device UDID in the Provisioning Profile?


    What device are you testing on?


    What does your application descriptor look like?

    The app descriptor, I mean the XML file that you're using to build.


    If its failing to install I don't think it has anything to do with your code as it's not getting that far.


    Are you targeting the correct type of .ipa when you build?

    It's not getting as far as your code - it's the provisioning profile and build. I had the same problem - installed on iPad 2 and iPhone 4, but not a 4S until the icons were available.


    Instead of iTunes, deploy your App using TestFlight - that will make sure you have the correct devices UDID's in your provisioning profile.


    Just register and upload your build - ignore all the 'SDK' stuff.


    Think the URL is

    I don't use an asterisk in the app name.


    I'm using Flash Develop on Windows, and building my .ipa's using the command line adt command.


    I don't know what hardware you're using, but I followed this:
