If I attempt to launch XCode from the dock (as a standard user), I simply get an error message (see end of his message). The same happens regardless of the way XCode is launched, ie, from Spotlight, from the Applications folder, from the Applications stack. However, if I switch to an administrators account, I can launch XCode successfully but ony if I launch from the dock; Spotlight launch fails with the same message.

 

I tried to redownload XCode from the App store but the App store version only supports Lion. What can I do about this apart from the obvious upgrade to Lion which I don't want to do just for the sake of XCode and am concerned about corrupting my bootcamp partition which is vital for me. I can't risk the upgrade to Lion if there is even an outside chance of losing my bootcamp partition as I have heard of from various forums.

 

Although I am an experienced windows developer, this is my first foray into developing for OS-X/iOS platform so I haven't got off to a great start.

 

Error message is as follows:
