When using Visual Studio Cordova, I am following these instructions to publish the app to the Apple App Store:
After successfully creating the Certificate and Provisioning Profile, and then successfully downloading the Provisioning Profile (*.mobileprovision) file to my Mac, the instructions then say to "Double-click that file to install it and then add it to the Code signing section of Build Settings for Xcode."
But when I doubleclick, Xcode is launched but my project is not loaded. Now keep in mind that up until this point, I have only used the Mac as a dummy machine for remote build - I haven't actually used the Mac directly to do any coding in XCode directly. So I have no idea where the project is that I'm assuming was created when I did my remote build via the Windows machine.
So am I supposed to open up the project on the Mac to install the Provisioning Profile? Where would it be stored? What kind of file am I looking for (like what file extension).
I did find an XCode project created by VS Cordova at the following location (Users/.taco_home/remote-builds/taco-remote/builds/XXX/cordovaApp/platforms/ios) but these xocde projects get created each time I make a new build in Visual Studio, so any changes I make to the XCode project from the Mac don't get used upon later builds.
You can find provisioning profile setup information in this new document on the taco.visualstudio.com site. This is a fairly new article, so you may not have seen it yet:
Specifically, it walks through how to install the provisioning profile in XCode.
