I built an application in Xcode with C++ and Objective C on a mac running OSX 10.4.8. Now I'm trying to get that application running on another mac. I've copied over the entire directory structure for my project. When I try to run the application on the new mac, the program immediately shuts down. An icon begins to appear in the task bar, but the program quits and that disappears. The mac I'm trying to move the program to is running 10.4.9. Any ideas on what could be going on here?

Did you build it using the Debug configuration? If so, you'll need to switch to Release mode, because Debug by default uses Zerolink. Executables built with Zerolink won't run when transferred to another computer.

That was exactly the issue. Thank you.
