iOS app simulation rotated?

Thanks Randy - I hadn't thought of this. Tried it just now and sadly it doesn't work. The simulation used to work, even without this line of script (maybe with another simulator, since I haven't worked on this one for quite a time). There must be another reason. Thanks anyway. I noted by the way in the Dictionary that it says

I am not aware of ever setting the orientation (and I don't know what 'the configured list' refers to), since I don't allow for portrait at all - I expect the app to open in Landscape and stay there. BTW I also tried using just one option, "landscape left" but the result was the same. Must be something in my code. I will now build some very simple test apps to see what happens.

I must have made a change in the setup, but I don't know what, and now when I try to test from the IDE, I get the simulation showing up as landscape with my splash screen correctly positioned, then suddenly the splash screen is rotated through 90 degrees, meaning that some of it (the original right hand side) is now invisible. When the app proper starts, it is also shown rotated with the right hand side cut off. If I use the 'Rotate' menu in the simulator, all I get is a portrait screen with the same cut-offs.
