Can't build examples from SDK 6.0.4 with XCode 3.2.6


I am trying to test the examples from SDK 6.0.4 with XCode 3.2.6 under MacOS X Snow Leopard.

However XCode’s “Build and Run” icon is greyed out therefore I can’t do anything.

Does it have anything to do with the setup (paths etc) ? For instance is it still necessary to set up things like in this old tutorial : ? (The icon remains greyed out after having followed these steps anyway).

Thank you in advance.

You can actually build your external (cmd-B or Build/Build). What you can’t do is debugging it. In order to do that, you have to set the active executable as Max Runtime (Project/New Custom Executable, just set the path for MaxRT and accept all the defaults), so that XCode knows _what to run!

Thanks Andrea.

What about the 2005 tutorial ? Does it still matter with the current SDK ?

Actually you don’t need that tutorial anymore – everything you need to get started is in the new example projects. For most situations, they’re just ok as they are – you only have to change the product name, change the name of the source file in the target et voilà.
