When I try to install the IPA to an iPad from my web page, I get a dialog after almost ten minutes of "Waiting..." on the icon:

Unable to Download App "App Name" could not be downloaded at this time.

Reading the device log is not very helpful. After slogging through seven minutes of entries, almost 3,000 lines, the best error I can find says:

Jul 19 09:08:40 PADD-mini-02 SpringBoard(FrontBoard)[49] <Error>: Applications did fail to install: (

    "<LSApplicationProxy: 0x151d85a20> com.ambitenergy.ambitjapan (null) <com.ambitenergy.ambitjapan <INVALID >> {9D7B8F6A-7A5D-4AF8-862D-0B6B3002FED1 432}"

) (appInfos: (null))

I can't figure out exactly why it's failing. But I think it might be an improperly signed IPA.

When I sign the IPA with the AEM Mobile Signing Tool (release.2017.2), I use the .mobileprovision file for this app. The only options in the Certificate drop down are:

- Select a certificate

√ Developer ID Application: My Company (numbersandletters)

- Mac Developer: My Name (numbersandletters)

Shouldn't there be an item like:

- iOS Enterprise Developer: My Company (numbersandletters)

And at no point in the iOS signing process am I asked for the .p12 file or the associated password.

Please keep in mind: this is for iOS Enterprise, not using the Apple App Store.

Questions, then:

1. Why is this failing to install?

2. Am I signing the IPA correctly?

3. Am I missing a certificate?

Related Questions:

1. Is there a way to view the iPad console in a better way? The Xcode Devices window only shows like 10 lines at a time and is unfiltered. Plus, it takes so long for the installation to fail that the log is jam packed with thousands of other unwanted messages about battery, bluetooth,

Hi Mark, sounds like an appId mismatch (well, that's the first thing I'd investigate).
