Hi all,
I am a beginner with B4i (installed it today)
I have..
  1. Become a developer
  2. Installed the Java 8 on my Mac
  3. Tested the Mac-server on the mac - running ok and tested on my PC
  4. Have the key for my iPad
Now could someone give me an a-z idea of what I need to do now.
i.e. What do I need to do with apple etc.
and the rest.
I realise these are available in many posts but if someone could give me a basic what to do that would be great.

Thanks in advance Tom

Thanks for that, have it running with the Mac builder service.
Still working on what went wrong with the Mac running the builder.
Then decided to set up a virtualbox win 7 on my Mac.
Have b4i running. Copied my keys folder over to the virtual machine.
Tried to run but came up with a password error on compile.
Is the private sign key machine dependant?
Or have I forgotten to do something. lol
I would like to be able to develop on my pc and my Mac.

I just rebooted my win7 virtual machine and it works. (no idea why)
It compiled and ran a demo app. GREAT
Now will try the server running on the mac.
Will post any success or errors.

check Tools > Private key or something like that and see if the password is entered
