    I'm confused.

     

    There is no such thing as

     

    com.apple.Xcode.plist

     

    in my user prefs (or in the list above), and the instruction to remove

     

    com.apple.dt.Xcode.plist

     

    was given at the beginning of the thread, twice...

    Older Xcode versions used com.apple.Xcode.plist.

    Thanks, but the OP is running Mountain Lion. He needs to be using the latest version of Xcode or for sure there's going to be problem trying to get it to run.

    I wasn't suggesting that the OP run an older Xcode version.

    What happens if you answer 'Yes' to the unlock message?

    Use finder and Ctl-Click on 'mx_sw_ch.xcodeproj' and use Get Info to display the Sharing and Permissions for the file (note, this file is actually a special package directory).  Is this an Xcode project that you need?

    If you want to use Terminal, enter this command:

     

    ls -al FOLDER_THAT_HOLDS_YOUR_XCODE_PROJECTS/mx_sw_ch/mx_sw_ch.xcodeproj/project.xcworkspace/xcuserdata/YOUR_ID.xcuserdatad

    You need to substitute something like '/Users/YOUR_ID/myProjects' for FOLDER_THAT_HOLDS_YOUR_XCODE_PROJECTS, and your Mac user ID for YOUR_ID.

     

    The output of  the command should show the UserInterfaceState.xcuserstate file and its ownership like this:

     

    -rw-r--r--  1 myID  myID  13681 Dec  2  2011 UserInterfaceState.xcuserstate
    -rw-r--r--  1 myID  myID  29637 Sep  7  2010 WorkspaceState.xcuserstate

    @xnav : perfect description of the problem, and your solution solved the issue on my side

    I had this happen when I accidently told Xcode too open the directory that contains all my projects.  If Xcode works from a new/different user ID then try deleting everything that starts:

    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dt.* under the user experiencing the problem.
