    Hi I just created a macRumors account because I have about 40 minutes before I need to go back to college and I need to transfer an xcode project to another mac.

    I compressed the entire folder that had the xcode project in it and emailed it to myself. I also exported my developer certificate and then imported into xcode on the second mac.

    Every single supporting file is showing up in red and I have four errors saying "no such file or directory" for 4 supporting files.

    What should I do?

    Never mind! I deleted all supporting files and then re-added them. There must have been some kind of problem retrieving the supporting files from their designated paths.

    Sometimes when you add files they are stored in the project as full-paths. If you move the project the full paths don't exist. That's what causes the red files; it can't find them. The files need to be stored as relative paths from the project.

    If you copied the folder the files are there, just re add them to the project. Like was mentioned above Xcode is looking in the wrong place for your files.
