QUICK TIP: Security Policy Error During Deployment

Today I ran into a problem when I tried to deploy my code to my iPhone. I saw the following cryptic message:



Error launching remote program: security policy error.
The program being debugged is not being run.




The problem usually shows up for jailbroken devices, but mine is not jailbroken. I solved this problem by deleting all of my expired provisioning profiles. Seems like 3.0 has a problem using the correct profile, and if any expired profile is present it won’t allow for deployment.


Now I am having problems deploying to my 3.0.1 iPhone after downgrading from 3.1b5. I had used the symlink Xcode trick, but now it doesn’t work, even after removing the symlink. Any one in my same position?
