Post subject:  Code signing failed in Mountain Lion 10.8.3

I upgraded to Mountain lion 10.8.3
Disaster!!
I could no longer code sign my app in terminal!!
It said it was defective.
I booted from my backup drive using Lion 10.7.5.
Code signing now works ok.
Does anyone know what the problem is?

Been signing with Mountain Lion without any issue. Just make sure that in Keychain, you do not have any expired or duplicate certificates.

probably missing codesign_allocate, you'll need to download Xcode and then dig it out and place it the right place.

If you already have Xcode installed, App Wrapper can automatically move it to the right place for you.

I forgot to add, that you can test this by downloading the FREE trial of App Wrapper as it has code to check for codesign_allocate and if you have Xcode installed on your 10.8 partition, it can install it into the correct place. You don't need to use App Wrapper to wrap your application.

You can also use App Wrapper to validate that your certificates are correct too.

Thanks for all the suggestions

The problem was not due to duplicate certificates but it was good to know that code signing did work in Mountain Lion.

I upgraded to Xcode 4.6.2 it still did not work until I downloaded and installed

" Command Line Tools (OS X Mountain Lion) for Xcode"

Once these were installed code signing worked!

I had wrongly assumed these were automatically installed when i installed Xcode as in the past.
