Opening projects in upgraded OS

  • Hi! I've just updated my operating system to OS 10.4 from OS 10.2.8, and now none of my Cocoa projects will open in ProjectBuilder. Is there anything I can do to save them, or am I just supposed to start everything from scratch again?

    Any help would be very gratefully received, as I've got a couple of programmes I've been working on for a year that are completely useless now unless I can work out how to open them.

  • Install Xcode. You can open ProjectBuilder projects in Xcode.

  • Thanks for the advice. I've been rather lazily putting off moving to Xcode since I'm so used to ProjectBuilder. Looks like I'll have to change now.

    Thanks again,

    Simon

The only development  environment that works on Tiger is Xcode 2.x, which you can download  from developer.apple.com or find in your Apple installation discs.The project format for Xcode is incompatible with ProjectBuilder's.  You cannot open a Xcode project in ProjectBuilder, although you can  migrate a ProjectBuilder project to Xcode by opening it.Xcode has been out for a while now. Why so long?  - ∞

    Use Xcode 2.5. IIRC, Xcode 3.0 dropped support for importing Project
    Builder projects.

  • Hi, Simon,

    Project Builder is no longer the preferred (if it's even supported)
    tool for working with Objective-C in Mac OS X.  You should install
    Xcode (2.4.x, or 2.5).  Then it should give you the option of
    upgrading your projects to a compatible state.

    That said, I've found it generally a better practice, for my own
    needs, to recreate old projects, since the build setting templates
    have changed a little bit in the last few OS revisions.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

  • Yes, you'll find that Xcode is really just a rebranding and version
    upgrade of Project Builder. It's still basically the same app, but
    with more features.

    As others have said, you'll need to install Xcode rather than use your
    old install of Project Builder. I would strongly recommend downloading
    Xcode 2.4.1 from ADC and installing that to be certain that you are
    using the most recent release version of Xcode for Tiger.  (Xcode 3.0
    is for Leopard.)

    Once you've upgraded your developer tools, you'll definitely also want
    to upgrade your projects to use the native Xcode build system so you
    can build universal binaries.
