Code Signing Blues

Matthias Rebbe via use-livecode
A couple of years ago, I got a lot of advice on this list about code signing Mac apps that are not being distributed via the Mac App Store, and I got some of it working. Trying to revive that knowledge and working with a different computer, I seem to have come unstuck at stage one, which is the generation of a valid certificate. I am a registered Apple developer, but I don’t understand how I ever got a proper Certification Authority to talk to, or indeed what happened to the certificate(s) I had then. There doesn’t seem to be much relevant in my Keychain, and wading through XCode when all you know is LC is a bit like being taught Hungarian as a foreign language (THFL - or the equivalent).

Can anyone give me just a little clue as to how to get my cert? After that, I think I know how to use AppWrapper, and indeed I’ve got a nifty LC script from Trevor deVore that  might do the actual signing - but no certificate, no joy.

I’d appreciate any help.

Graham

AW: Code Signing Blues

Hi Graham,

log into you developer.apple.com account
go to Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles
Select the wanted certificate on the right side (one click)
Click Download

That should do it to get them on you new machine
