codesign failed with exit code 1

While building the distribution version of my iphone app i had to struggle with the codesign-tool:
"codesign failed with exit code 1"

Finally i fixed the problem:

The problem was that there where different names entered in the following configuration fields:

- Project -> Edit Active Target -> Properties Tab -> Field "Executable"

- Project -> Edit Active Target -> Build Tab -> Field  "Product Name"
- in info.plist (or *.plist) the field  "executable file"

So make sure that these fields contain the same value.

The root of the problem that I  renamed the executable file in the .plist file cause the initial name of the xcode project was not the name of the final product.
