I have finished developing the first version of my iOS app, and continued to complete all the necesarry steps in Itunes Connect and began uploading my app through the mac's os AppLoader. What consequently turned out to be the problem is that my app which was published in Adobe Flash Proffesional 6 was configured under a development certificate (in the deployment tab) and not a distribution certificate needed to publish it to the App Store. I generated such a certificate on a Mac and tried using it in my project through Flash 6 on my PC, however a password is needed to publish the app.
I have several questions concerning this issue :
1) Is there a way to generate a distribution certificate on my PC (not through a mac)?
2) these distribution certificates are .cer extensions - in FLASH you are instructed to browse for .p12 certificates.
3) If i can use the distribution certificate created in the mac computer in my project on my Windows PC, where can i figure out the password it requires me to enter?
This is a very frustrating matter, Adobe if you can upload a Distribution Tutorial for Publishing to App Store that would help many people dealing with the same problem...currently there is only a tutorial on how to create a .p12 development certificate...
1. yes, but it's much more difficult than doing it on a mac. in fact, i believe you will have to emulate a mac to do it.
2. when you create your .p12 file in keychain you enter an password. (there's no reason to use a different passwords for development and distribution.)
p.s. that list is from a book i'm writing. i noticed a few typos where i mentioned development and it should say distribution. (the steps are the same for a distribution certificate and for a development certificate except for the different tabs clicked in a few steps.)
