dreamweaver cs5.5 with phoneGap on osx Lion will not launch ios simulator

Tags: #lion #cs5.5 #dreamweaver #phonegap

Once upgrading my system to Lion, dreamweaver cannot launch the ios simultor anymore.  Initially it would error out when building an app, but I fixed that by updating Camera.h. 


The app I am trying to build is just the sample jQuery mobile starter page included w/ dreamweaver.  I can build and run apps now, but dremweaver cannot open the simulator, so I have to open the prioject in xcode to simulate.


Does anyone know how to fix dreamweaver to allow launching ios simulator (in lion)?


@Adobe Dev Team - When does adobe plan to launch a patch for this?




OSX Lion 10.7.3

xCode 4.3.2

dreamweaver cs5.5 with the latest updates

latest phonegap dreamweaver extention


Any help is greatly appreciated,

    Lion has changed a lot of the ways in which applications interact with the system.  Apple noted that as of Xcode 4.3 it would no longer reside in it's own folder, but rather in a contained app.  You will have to manually update the path to be:




    That is a hidden system path because of how Mac apps are installed and not a fault of Adobe here that you cannot open app packages within the Finder to select the Xcode application.

    I cant even get anything to even save in the settings for the ios path no matter what I type in. It's very frustrating.
