Thanks heaps..

I have just upgraded my other machines today and began doing just as you suggested.. The new profile management in Xcode 5 has a few 'learning curves' but I think understand it now.

I'm yet to finish the upgrades so can't comment if all of this will fix the issue but I remember copying and pasting the app id from the dev centre into LC so i guess it's grabbed some odd characters along the way..

Thanks all for your help, I won't get back to the computer for a few days (Easter holidays) but will provide feedback as to the result....

In standalone settings, make sure you have no hidden control characters in the app ID and the app name. To be safe, delete them from standalone settings and re-type them.
