    You create the Entitlements.plist file.

    Add a new file to the root of your application. When the dialog pops up asking type of what file you want to add, select "Code Signing"->Entitlements

    Name it Entitlements.plist

    Now in the Entitlements.plist file, there should be a boolean key "get-task-allow". Make sure it's false (unchecked).

    Then you can specify Entitlements.plist back in your build inspector as the image suggests.

    The entitlements.plist is normally not needed unless you are doing adhoc distribution.
