Nothing If Not Persistent
Well, I fired up one of the last remaining PPC boxes I could get my hands on and re-build the project under the old Xcode and for PCC only. The result are a not-as-pretty – but functional – 10.4 PPC build of DBCC Desktop (76KB compressed archive).
I moved the project back over to my Leopard box and compiled it as a Universal with a 10.4 target architecture as well. I did not have time to test the results on Tiger, but it works on Leopard. That one is DBCCDesktop10.4-Universal.zip (76KB compressed archive).
One reason for the failure of the previous 10.4 target was the use of the BWToolkit and HUD window. There were other incompatible project settings as well.
This is probably my last fiddling with a 10.4 compatible build.
If anything, I was able to savor the beauty that is Xcode 3.x having re-lived the horror that was Xcode 2.x. How did we ever build apps? :-)
