iOS deployment question

I’m wondering if there is a way to smooth out this error for the user.

When I try to load my app onto my iPhone for testing, I get the following message from XCode:

T"he entitlements specified in your application’s Code Signing Entitlements file do not match those specified in your provisioning profile. (0xE8008016).”

I’m wondering if there is a way for Livecode to provide more diagnostic information about the validity of the provisioning profile. The message above from XCode doesn’t give much help. 

Best,
Bill

That was after I realized that the reference to "identity" actually meant that it couldn't find a valid certificate. Now it seems obvious, but didn't at first. I remember some postings a while back re the need to get a new certificate. In the process, I mucked up my entire keychain and had to recover it using the wonderful "Time Machine".

One thing I see as I fiddle, is multiple provisioning profile in the drop down menu on iOS settings. Each new change and download on the Apple dev site creates a new one and the name doesn't change unless I do in in the apple developer website. Haven't figured out a way to delete old ones yet, but that will come.

Arcane rules, certificates, permissions… even the vocabulary seems to have been re-invented to confuse the honest programmer. Of course, that’s just my view, and I am not young. Still, it seems to me that one of the biggest challenges for LiveCode is to make the whole process, from having the idea for the app all the way to successfully publishing it, a journey with no u-turns, dead ends, or deep frustration at lack of progress.

Or perhaps, could the Livecode diagnostics give more information to help figure out what’s going wrong? This seems like a real need to me.
