Thanks for the reply Colin!

Unfortunately it still doesn't work!

So I went through the provisioning process, which as everybody by now knows is quite lengthy. Still, the instructions were very good and I have the valid certificate in my Keychain. 

The only remark about the process was the final step, which is opening your project in Xcode and doing something. Since I use liveCode and don't use Xcode, I simply skipped this step. 

So I have the certificate and it still won't work.

I still get the white icon, but nothing happens. The weird thing is that when I double click the home button on the simulator, that icon is there in the open apps row as if it is running.

Anyone experienced this and solved it?
