    Could someone send me the Plist editor that comes with Xcode? I don't want to install the whole thing, as I won't use it. I just need the Plist editor, and while we're at it, the icon generator. :)

    For which version of Xcode?

    You can use Pacifist to extract them from your Xcode installer.



    Even though some might get annoyed of reading this, the thread title guy strikes again:

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.

    I tought of this, but Pacifist seems to cost 20$...

    As for Xcode, I have both the 10.5 and 10.6 DVDs, so I guess it would be 3.1 or 3.2. But I don't mind Xcode 4 either... ;)

    Pacifist is a shareware and works nonetheless. I used it and it is often recommended to get applications out of installers.

    It doesn't work...

    Seems like I need to have some other tools installed :(

    That means, "Couldn't open Property list editor because of an error. Verify that it is compatible with this version of OSX blah blah blah."

    Any ideas?

    Uih, I could understand that. And I didn't see you translating that.

    So, can you do what it says, verify that it is compatible with your Mac OS X version?

    What Mac OS X version are you running and what version are you trying to extract?

    Use TextWrangler. It will automatically convert binary plists to text.

    It's free.

    I'm on 10.6.4, and I extracted the version from the 10.6 install DVD.

    I'm pretty sure this is not the problem ;)

    I just extracted Proper List Editor.app and the Icon Composer.app and attached it to this post in a .zip file.
    I used the Snow Leopard Upgrade DVD that came out in August 2009.
    I had no problems doing that.

    Do they work?

    I get the same message while opening Plist editor. Icon composer works.

    By the way, I had also extracted Icon Composer and Pixie. Both of them work.

    So I guess it is related to some resource Xcode installs.

    Code:
    [blackie:/Developer/Applications/Utilities/Property List Editor.app/Contents/MacOS] (0) whschultz% otool -L Property\ List\ Editor 
    Property List Editor:
    	@rpath/PlistEdit.framework/Versions/A/PlistEdit (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 1607.0.0)

    It looks like there are four frameworks that it needs, and all of them are in /Developer/Library/PrivateFrameworks.
