    It seems to not work with Mountain Lion and for some reason a new version wasn't included in ML and i can't find an update. I used it a lot for quick changes so I'm kind of missing it. Any suggestions?

    I also cannot launch it. I checked console and it outputs a crash log that mentions this:
    Dyld Error Message:
      Library not loaded: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DotMacSyncManager.framework/Versions/A/DotMacSyncManager
      Referenced from: /Developer/Applications/
      Reason: image not found

    DotMac? Wasn't that the predecessor to MobileMe? Anyways, I've checked and it's not on my computer running ML.

    2X Edit:

    I checked my MBA still running Lion (it's too old to upgrade) and I found it does have the framework. Just for craps and giggles, I suppose I'll try putting it on my iMac running ML and see what happens...

    3X Edit: Tried, it didn't work. The crash log also mentions carbon... that might be related to the issue? Then again, the log still has what I quoted in my original post despite my having added the framework to this computer...

    Thanks for checking, glad I'm not the only one. Kind of a weird thing for Apple to forget about.

    Interesting. . .

    Dashcode runs fine on my MBP running Mountain Lion. Do you guys have Xcode 4.4(released on MAS yesterday)?

    I do not have the DotMacSyncManager.framework either. . .

    Good Luck!:)

    I upgraded to the new Xcode, do you think that's part of the problem?

    Thanks! I swear I looked there on the day ML came out and I couldn't find Dashcode anywhere. This helps a lot.

    That fixed it, thanks!

    I was having the same problem and couldn't run Dashcode under Mountain Lion, even though I was on Xcode 4.4. So, I just went to the page and downloaded it from there and installed it and now it runs fine under ML.

    When you said downloaded it, did you mean Xcode or Dashcode? I failed to keep Dashcode running more than a few secs with the one I downloaded from the developer website.

    edit: Things seem to work fine, it just hangs after being open for more than a few seconds. Here is the what Activity Monitor spit out when I sampled the process.

    edit2: I got the idea to move my iPhoto Library to a different directory, and for some reason it worked

    Maybe its related to

    + 2750 ??? (in iLMBiPhotoPlugin2012) load address 0x10e840000 + 0x8e538 [0x10e8ce538]

    For the record, I had this problem too. Turns out I had Dashcode in /Developer/, which was version 3.0.2 (look at the crash report, it shows the version).

    Downloaded new version from the apple website linked in this thread, and DELETED the old version in /Developer, and it worked.

    dashcode is in conflict with iPhoto

    I had the same experience with dashcode.
    To get the problems resolved I downloaded the dashcode release 3.0.5. These version is no longer part of the xcode package and must be downloaded in the apple developer center separately.
    Then I followed the instruction under
    It seems that iPhoto must be set up in the right way. (Had never thought that these programs relay on each other)
    For me these tipps resolved the problems. So in the last few days I was able to develop a new WebApp for all of us who like a cosy fireplace. The WebApp is free, a gift for christmas and located under:

    Dashcode is running, but...

    I just upgraded to ML and got the new XCode and Dashcode. One of my old widgets freezes when I try to run it, though, and one has an odd problem where it accepts the output string from one widget.system command and not another (both commands run compiled fortran code). Is there something obvious that I'm forgetting to do?
