iOS 4 Simulator crash (when installed to custom folder)

Categories: en development Tags: crash iOS 4 iPhone iPhone Simulator Softlink XCode

just downloaded and installed the iOS 4 SDK and as my root OS X partition is rather (too) small, I put it into a custom location /Users/Developer.Snowleopard/.

This causes the iPhone Simulator to crash and compiling gives an error like:

ibtool failed with exception: Interface Builder encountered an error communicating with the iPhone Simulator. If you choose to file a crash report or radar for this issue, please check Console.app for crash reports for "Interface Builder Cocoa Touch Tool" and include their content in your crash report.

The cure โ€“ a softlink:
