Plugin Manager - code signing error when creating a plugin installer

When creating a plugin installer with Plugin Manager, you may receive a similar error message to the following:

Unable to create installer

Code signing failed: object file format unrecognized, invalid or unsuitable.

The code signing function of Plugin Manager requires Xcode to be installed on your system along with the optional command-line tools.

To install the command-line tools, launch Xcode, go to the Downloads tab of the Preferences dialog and then click the Install button next to Command Line Tools.

If that doesn't solve the problem, type the following command in to the Terminal:

export CODESIGN_ALLOCATE="/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/codesign_allocate"
