    Hi all, thanks in advance for your help,

    We received a simulator build (a large folder including the application file) from our Apple developer that we want to run in a web conference on the iPhone simulator (to show to our collaborators in other states). We have the SDK and can open/use the simulator, however, we're not sure in which directory to place the app file so that it will work in the simulator.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, kind of new to this!

    Double click the project file and it should open Xcode. Then build and run the app and the simulator should automatically open.

    I think he just received the build folder and not the project. I haven't tried, but I don't think you can do that.

    I totally misread the post then. I thought by the application file they meant the project file. My mistake.

    .app bundles compiled for the iOS 4.2 Simulator (x86 CPU) go in the:

    ~/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/4.2/Applications/big-long-hex-number/

    directory.

    Hopefully, your developer shipped you the big-long-hex-number directory from their Simulator Library Application Support, and all its contents.
