iOS App: "could not access the digital certificate"

I had an app on my iPad that stopped working. I deleted the app and am trying to put it back on my iPad, but I keep getting the error from Adobe Animate "Could not access the digital certificate"

I first pushed the app to my iPad March of 2016 and haven't touched it since, except to open it up on my iPad.

I am trying to get it back on my iPad using Adobe Animate CC 2017

Target: AIR 25.0 for iOS

GENERAL TAB:

Render Mode: GPU

Device: iPad

Resolution: High

**I left all other options alone**

DEPLOYMENT TAB:

Deployment: I selected my .p12 certificate that I created March of 2016

Password: I think I have the right one, at least, I don't get a password error

Provisioning Profile: I selected the one I created March of 2016

App ID: Entered this

Deployment Type: Device Testing

A FEW OTHER NOTES:

I don't know if this makes a difference, but my developer license did expire and in Keychain Access, it does show that my "iPhone Developer" certificate is expired.

I also read that the current Adobe Animate CC 2017 could be the issue, but I don't have an older version of Animate. I do have Adobe Flash CS6, but the highest "Target" is AIR 3.4 for iOS.

Also, do I need to renew my license, just to get an old app back on my iPad? Or will the certificate and provisioning profile that I created last year, still work, even if my developer license/account is expired?

If you've made changes to the app and are trying to compile a new ipa, you'll need an active developer license. On the other hand, if your goal is to get the same app (not edited) back on your iPad, you should be able to retrive it by opening iTunes on your PC/Mac while your iPad is connected.

Ok, then you should be able to find it by connecting your iPad to your PC/Mac. Open itunes and look through your apps there.

Unfortunately, this isn't working. I connected to iTunes, but there's not an option to view backed up apps. My iPad has never been backed-up because I never had a need to do so.

Ok. Do you have the original ipa file? If so you can try double tapping it while connected to your PC/Mac and see if you can install it via itunes.

I do have the original IPA. I tried connecting my iPad and installing it via iTunes, but no luck. The closest I got was it installing the icon, but not the actual app. If I have to renew my developer license to get it back on my iPad, I'll do so. It's just a lot of money to spend if I don't need to, for one app.

Hm, sounds like renewing your developer license is your best bet.
