Trying to deploy Apple Application to an Apple phone... Did it once before... Not its not working

Hi all... back again with more questions regarding this overly complicated process of getting an application on an apple phone..

On this phone about 2 or so week back I was able to get the application on the phone... I did the ID and all has been submitted to the dev
account.

So I the apple phone connected to the macintosh computer. On the windows computer in visual studio I have the machintosh paired...

Last time I had this question there was some confusion over should this be built as ad-hoc or release. I have no idea which one worked...
But I will have to do this 100 times to get this application to my users. I would love to know if there is a step by step guide as I have tried all the things I was told before...

I I select device the visual studio switches to the apple phone simulator...... Do I want that to happen? I don't want want to run it.. I want to install it..
Just look for clarity here.. Thank you.

Currently I am following this:

    You are trying to deploy this to 100 devices by building it each time? Don't do that, dev builds expire after a week. Use TestFlight instead to deploy to your app testers. They expire after 90 days instead.

    Hi @JohnHair
    Why do they expire... I have the devices listed on the apple dev site? How do I get them to no expire at all?

    Neither one of those are viable for us... we are using this application internally... there has to be a way to use an internal app and not have it expire... I thought that was what the 200 US dollars was for... am I missing something???

    Sounds like you want the enterprise apple licence.
