Hello again, faithful Mac programming community! :D I'm trying to add update functionality to my app, but can't seem to get the Sparkle framework to work in my app! I've followed the directions to the T, but when I build I get 3 warnings and 1 error... The warnings are...

Code:
warning -F: directory name (/Users/Craig/Documents/Cocoa) does not exist
warning -F: directory name (Programs/My) does not exist
warning -F: directory name (Programs/iProcrastinate) does not exist
and the error is...

Code:
Command /usr/bin/gcc-4.0 failed with exit code 1
I'm assuming the error spawns from the warnings? I followed the documentation that came with the framework, but I've never linked against any frameworks before, so I was mostly following blindly. (Though I've done it multiple times, re-read the directions, and still can't figure it out!) Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how'd you fix it? :(

Edit: Figured I could link to the site of the framework for reference... Here

XCode has serious issues with paths containing spaces when specifying extra directories to link to. Try putting everything in paths without spaces. I have tried quoting the paths, escaping the spaces, everything. In the end I gave up and renamed the directories to not have spaces.

I pretty much got Sparkle to work by following the instructions. But if you've got the sparkle framework in a directory that has a space anywhere in it's path, xCode will throw a wobbler - I know, I downloaded it and put the dl in a directory called 'Sparkle Framework' :rolleyes:

You'll have to edit the framework path setting in the Build tab in your target's Get Info window and put the entire thing in quotes, but even then it may not work.

I don't think anyone has ever figured out Xcode and Cocoa on their own ;)
