Xcode won't start
Hi, I am having trouble with Xcode. I just won't start! I tried to reinstall Xcode and that didn't work either. I have recently upgraded my eMac to Mac OSX.5.5 to OSX.5.6. I am wondering if that messed it up.

I don't know but do the usual. Fix permissions, check the log via the in the Utilities folder. Your XCode should be in /Developer/Applications/ folder.

What do you mean it won't open? Error messages? Warnings?

I ran Repair Disk Permissions and found the crash log. (in the uploads.)

I don't know. I'd do a Google search for the two lines that follow "Application Specific Information:". It would appear that you are trying to start up XCode in debug mode. Also run the console, but I think those are the errors you'll see.

People on the Apple Support forum have been reporting this problem with Xcode 3.0 (NOT the newest Xcode 3.1.2) after installing the Safari 4 beta. They have consistently been able to resolve it by downloading and installing the latest version of Xcode. If you did install the Safari 4 beta and aren't running Xcode 3.1.2 yet, I'd suggest you give their solution a try.

Apple - Support - Discussions - XCode repeatedly crashes on startup ...

Google is your friend. I found a discussion on Apple that maybe your answer. These people had installed Safari 4 beta.

P.S. I see mystic_fm beat me to it. ;)
