    I have a problem with my app when I use "Build and Go" with my iPhone. When the application is already installed on the phone I get the following message:

    Your mobile device has encountered an unexpected error (0xE8000036) during the install phase: PreflightingApplication

    In the organizer this is what appears in the console:

    Sun Oct 12 22:57:05 unknown mobile_installation_proxy[334] <Error>: preflight_application_install: The application has already been installed
    Sun Oct 12 22:57:05 unknown mobile_installation_proxy[334] <Error>: install_application: Could not preflight application install
    Sun Oct 12 22:57:05 unknown mobile_installation_proxy[334] <Error>: handle_install: Installation failed


    When I uninstall the app first I can use "Build and Go".

    Is this normal? I recently added a settings bundle and now I have to

    1. Uninstall the app from the iPhone
    2. Re-enter the settings in the settings app
    3. Press Build and Go
    4. Debug

    I just want XCode to update the application after I add a few lines of code.

    What am I doing wrong? I searched a lot in google but it seems like I'm the only one having this problem.

    It does work when I try the same in the iPhone Simulator.

    Thanks for your help.

    I found the problem!

    Somehow my Development Provisioning Profile wasn't on my mac anymore. I downloaded it again and drag&dropped it on the XCode dock icon.

    Now I can use "Build and Go" without problems.
