I am using the iPhone Configuration Utility 3.3 and I had an iPad plugged in - while trying to deploy a profile, the application just crashed.

After this, I attempted to launch it several times but it would just crash immediately.

I looked through the ipcu.log file and saw that it had problems with a cryptographic key. I used Microsoft/Sysinternals Process Monitor and tracked down the key it tried to open and deleted it.

After doing this, I reopened the utility and it recreated a key and launched fine.

From here, I can create profiles, but when I try to install them on a device, nothing happens at all on the device, but going in to the console view, I see the device reporting this:

I have Googled for ages and seen other people suggesting deleting various folders including the iPhone Configuration Tools Cache, Device and other folders, but I have had no luck whatsoever.

I have run this tool on another machine with the same device and configuration profile and it works just fine. This is just on this one machine.

I have tried reinstalling without any luck and cannot find the file that it is trying to load. Based on the invalid profile warning, I have a hunch that it is still something related to cryptography/keys and profile signing, but, I just can't find it.

I can't create tags - This is on a Ipod, but it affects everything I<device>... Can someone create a tag for the configuration utility as that is what the error is specifically with? –  wilhil Aug 8 '11 at 15:27

I figured out that reinstalling the profile file into iOS Configuration Utility fixed it for me so probably make copies.

Make copies of what? Could you please expand and clarify your answer? –  CajunLuke Mar 5 '12 at 22:15
