After updating to Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, Project Builder doesn't work

Ok, so now that I've updated to Tiger, I've found whenever I try to open any project file (.pbproj) in Project Builder, I get an error like this:
Reason: *** -[PBXToolbar _notificationPostingEnabled]: selector not recognized [self = 0x4cf6880].

This happens even to the sample projects installed with Tiger.

I found the solution is simply to load them into XCode instead. It will ask you if it's ok to convert the project first, but every project I have done this with compiles fine in XCode. Apple is phasing out Project Builder for XCode. So, just re-associate your .pbproj files to XCode using the Get Info window.

I haven't been able to open up any of Apple's sample projects in Xcode 1.1, which installed with Tiger. I get the same error you report in Project Builder, and don't know what to do next.

Any ideas? Please email me at jake-at-userland-dot-com if you have suggestions for things to try. Thanks!

Make sure you are using Xcode 2.1 It is included on the Tiger DVD. 1.1 is the pre-Tiger version.
