Code signing error

I have allready read a lot of posts in the forum from ppl who had the same problem. But I couldn't fix it yet.
When I'm trying to publish the game, at the end a pop message said: Code signing failed. Make sure your provisioning profile, developer certificate, and WWDR certificate are installed.

I try to delete all of them, then create news, and install all again and still don't work. I have all instaled, I saw the video tutorial also.

But I can't fix it! Help me please, I have all in my keychain, the WWDR, certificates, the provisioning is in the xCode.

What can I make to fix that problem?

Sorry for bad english.

    I have had 3 years of this, so hopefully can help. You need to make sure that your certificate first (on iTunes connect) is all upto date and either the 'development' one (if your testing) or the 'distribution' one (if your releasing.

    You then need to make sure to set up your app id's in itunes connect (will now call ITC).

    Then you should download and install the certificates as the help suggests in the developer portal:

    Then you need to create your prov profiles, using the same app id, download to your mac and drag/install into xcode. Can I suggest you enter the 'Window -> Organizer' setting within xcode, select 'Provisioning Profiles' on the left and remove any old ones.

    Then you should be set to build from GS.

    Also, once you have installed the new profiles, can you please exit GS and restart so that it picks it up.

    Hope this helps, fire any more questions you have.

    If you mean Provisioning Portal, because in iTunes Connect I really don't see any place where I can create a certificate. So if you mean Provisioning Portal I did all of that already and It still don't work.

    I've been fighting through all the process for hours now again, this is the second day that I devote hours and it's so frustrating I wanna cry :(

    Right now I have all the certificates in green, but in the 'keys' part of the keychain acess I have nothing :(

    It's driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To make matters worse, I cannot just go and revoke my certificate and create a new one from scratch, because I am not the main developer here, my buddy is the one that has everything correctly set up and the owner of the account, so I cannot just delete and let him in the dark side :(
