I've been reading the other threads about this error, but I haven't come close to a solution.

I've checked the file size, generated keys using the script (also tried the one from here: andymatuschak#114 (comment)), made sure the pub-key is in the app, etc. But I still get the above-mentioned error.

Bit of info:

OS X 10.8.2
Sparkle 1.5b6

$ openssl version
OpenSSL 0.9.8r 8 Feb 2011

Things are working. Not entirely sure exactly what step made that become true.

I used the new version of generate_keys.rb, not the one in the 1.5b6 dist.

I pulled from master, built and linked into my app.

I also used a zip file instead of a dmg and made sure there was nothing else in the zip aside from my app.

Hope that helps anyone else.
