Hi there,


I'm trying to figure out the issue we're having with one of our app store submissions; the submission goes up fine (successfully uploads from Application Loader) - but is then rejected after ("Recieved Upload") in iTunesConnect with the error "Invalid Binary"; we then get an email with:


Invalid Signature - the main app bundle <appname> at path <appname>.app      is signed but the signature is invalid.     The following error(s) were reported from codesign:

a sealed resource is missing or invalid

In architecture: i386


As far as we can tell, the signature looks to be correctly applied; we're using:


codesign -vvv -f -s '3rd Party Mac Developer Application: <Our Company>' --entitlements "<appname>.entitlements" <appname>.app


To sign the bundle, and


productbuild --component "<appname>.app" "/Applications" --sign "3rd Party Mac Developer Installer: <Our Company>" <appname>package.pkg


Does anyone have any clues on how and where to start debugging this issue? Already spent 12 hours on the problem - would rather not waste another 12.
