    Yesterday I've installed the iPhone SDK, which includes the Xcode 3.1 beta, on my iMac. As I've understood, it can't be installed on my PowerBook since it doesn't have an Intel processor.

    Now I have a problem: I've edited a project on the iMac, and ever since I can't load it on my PowerBook. The error is 'Project [...].xcodeproj cannot be opened because the user file cannot be parsed'. Using xcodebuild from the command line also yields a list of errors.

    So, any way around this, so I can still use my projects on my PowerPC Mac?

    Save the project in Xcode 2.5 compatibility mode.

    You sure 3.1 doesn't work with PPC? It should only require Leopard. Plus I don't see Apple just cutting out the PPC users.

    3.1 uses a different/updated file format than 3.0 and 2.5, so unless you have a backup, you may be out of luck.

    However if you want you can PM me and send me the project, and I can re-save with 3.0 compatibility.

    Don't know why I didn't think of using compatibility mode, that's of course the obvious choice. I'll try that.
