I'm trying to get Dashcode to run in order to make a dashboard widget to surprise my friend. The app opens but crashes almost instantly (even in safe mode and Mavericks). The console yields the following errors:

6/23/2013 10:38:23.041 PM Dashcode[743]: *** WARNING: -[NSImage compositeToPoint:operation:] is deprecated in MacOSX 10.8 and later. Please use -[NSImage drawAtPoint:fromRect:operation:fraction:] instead.

That's really all there is to it. I open dash code, it locks up and requires a force quit. I've tried deleting it's temp files, and I've tried on both 10.8.4 and 10.9 DP 1. I showed the errors given, and beyond that, I can't think of any other details to replicate the problem. –  XAleXOwnZX Jun 25 '13 at 2:40

Dashcode interacts with the iPhoto library on startup - Start iPhoto with the option and command buttons held down. You then get an option to rebuild the library (there are four different radio buttons, start at the top - checking whether DashCode launches between each rebuild - if it doesn't work still try the next rebuild option in iPhoto)
