Hi jaylab2,

Have you gone through this documentation?
http://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/4.0.0/guide_platforms_ios_index.md.html#iOS%20Platform%20Guide

You need xcode and apple developer program for test on device.

Thanks & Regards,
Krunal T. Tailor

Yes jaylab2, for that you need at least apple developer account.

Have you followed this link?
http://community.phonegap.com/nitobi/topics/detailed_guide_for_setting_up_building_ios_apps_without_a_mac

Have you followed  step no 7? have you type right command?
7. On the command prompt, enter the following to convert from .cer to .pem:

You need Openssl Windows library to do this. Ref: http://www.nczonline.net/blog/2012/08/15/setting-up-ssl-on-an-amazon-elastic-load-balancer/

Let me know if it helps or not.

Hi jaylab2,

http://community.phonegap.com/nitobi/topics/detailed_guide_for_setting_up_building_ios_apps_without_a_mac

Then you need to create .key file from step no 3. Once you have .key and .pem file ready then you are able to create .p12 file from step 8.

You need to follow step by step for above link. You will get all your answer from this above link.
Have you generated .key file? Please Generate .key file first.

This is the one more ref for you : http://www.iandevlin.com/blog/2012/11/phonegap/building-an-ios-signing-key-for-phonegap-in-windows

Let me know if it helps or not.
