Since the new xCode is an App bundle it isn't recognized as a folder for dev in LC.

But you can still run LC apps in the simulator. 

As long as you have not deleted the old xCode  /developer folder (or if you did and then moved it back after install) and you are using  Lion 10.7.3 & xCode 4.3.1 and iOS 5.1 SDK and LiveCode 5 +
Here's how:

Find the new Simulator at:     /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/Applications/      and copy it to the old simulator folder here:       /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/Applications/

Then in LC just select Test and then from within the 'new' Simulator choose Hardware/Device/iPad (Retina) -- Then choose scale 50% from the Window menu.

Also, even though the screen is reduced to 50% the Copy Screen command and the Save Screen Shot command both produce the 1536 × 2048 pixel png.

SDK next…
