Certificate Problems

Ok, I’ve answered some of my own problems. Panos’ suggestion to make sure “Beta Version” was not checked in the iOS preferences, worked. 

So, until the next time when I lose a bit more hair, my app is loading and I can test it.
Thanks, Colin and Panos, for the few words of wisdom that it took to get this going.

Best,
Bill

One thing that is confusing me on the developer site, is when I try to make a new provisioning profile, it says there are no available certificates. Yet, when I go to the certificates section of the developer site, there are several certificates for iOS.

If I download from the dev site, I can double click on the profile and it gets loaded into Xcode and appears in the above library. I can alternatively, use Xcode to download all profiles I have created on the dev site.

Perhaps if I could clean out all existing certificates and start over, I would succeed. But, if I could clear up some of my confusion, I could better solve these problems on my own.
