Can't build examples from SDK 6.0.4 with XCode 3.2.6

    Hello,
    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 : http://cycling74.com/2005/10/05/writing-externals-with-xcode-22/ ? (The icon remains greyed out after having followed these steps anyway).
    Thank you in advance.

      Hi.
      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.
