How to publish a desktop Application for the Mac App Store using Flash CC on a Mac?

Hi,

 

I´ve published several iOS Apps using Flash CC on my Mac. This works perfect! There are many Tutorials on how to create all needed Certificates, Provisioning profiles and how to use them with Flash CC -  so it was quite easy to do.

 

Today I started working on my first Mac App. So I created my Development certificates and also Provisionng Profiles for Mac Apps in iTunes Connect. As I said this was very simple for iOS Apps so I hoped it would be the same for Mac Apps - but unfortunatelly I was wrong and I didn´t find even one tutorial on how to make this work.

 

For iOS Apps I can easily link to my p12 certificate and the provisioningprofile in the publishing settings (see screenshot).

... but for Mac Apps I do only see an option for adding my certificate - but no option for adding the provisioning profile for my App.

... I used the certificate for Mac development I created in iTunesConnect. But when I want to publish my project I get this Error Message in spite of using the correct password:

Can anyone please help and tell me how I can make this work (Flash CC + Mac + Apple Provisioning Profile + AppleCertificate )? Any link to a tutorial or instruction for dummies would be great!! 

 

Best regards and thank you in advance

 

Jan

    oops, you don't mean an iOS app, do you?

     

    i thought we were discussing an OS X app.

    that window looks ok (assuming you have a deutsche os), but yes there's no app name shown which is why you probably can't find your app after installing.  you could search for something recently installed to find it, but you'll still need to fix the problem: you're missing an app name setting somewhere
