I discovered what I was doing wrong here. Maybe this has been brought up before but being that I am not a daily Mac user it was not clear to me - the "app-specific" password is NOT the "password label" you type in when creating a new app-specific password in the Apple ID website - it is the GREYED OUT, 16-digit cryptic code that shows up after you hit enter (which I thought was just a text placeholder indicating that what I typed in had been recorded). AFAIK, that code remains hidden forevermore after you close that window. If you forget it you have to delete it and generate a new one.Fender19 wrote: ↑Sat Jan 11, 2020 9:36 pmI'm having the same problem notarizing a simple ZIP package. I have a signed VST inside a signed Zip and I'm trying to notarize it using a newly created "app-specific" password. I'm getting this error from altool:
*** Error: Unable to validate your application. Sign in with the app-specific password you generated. If you forgot the app-specific password or need to create a new one, go to appleid.apple.com
What could be wrong? I am following the instructions from page 1 of this thread using altool from XC 10.3.
That's really confusing, Apple! Why is that all-important code GREYED OUT and not RED or something else apparent?
Notarizing is now working. Where's the Tylenol....
