I installed XCode 4.3.1 a couple of days ago from the app store but it's not working - It keeps hanging on startup.


When I create a new user and log in as that user xcode works without problem - so the problem is specific to my user.


During startup, before it hangs, xcode appears to be trying to recover 2 "unsaved xcode documents."

XCode hangs showing 2 screens with the message "No Editor."


To fix the problem I've been trying to get rid of my user specific XCode settings.

I deleted the following but there was no change...




I've also deleted anything I could find re old versions of xcode - but I can't recall the specifics.


Any suggestions?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    Can someone tell me the fix for this? Why does Xcode work for the "new user" and not me? I am running Xcode 4 and Lion.


    Come on "somebody", throw me a bone!

    I just fixed this problem.  


    Go to ~/Library/Cashes,  search for  Xcode,  delete all "Unsaved Docs".  Empty Trash.  It worked fine afterwards.
