View Full Version : Xcode downloaded and disappeared?

Need help =/.

Just bought and downloaded the latest xcode, it installed, etc. Now I have no idea where it is on my Mac. I tried searching, found nothing. Looked for developer folder - doesn't exist, its not in utilities.

What do I do?

It'd be in the root directory of the volume you installed it to. Which should be your boot volume.

There is no developer directory though.

And I have searched for "xcode" and "developer" and neither appear to be on the hard drive at all.

If it's from the mac store check /app/Install Xcode

So in Finder select the "Go to folder…" from the "Go" menu. In the resulting dialog type "/Developer" and click the "Go" button.

What happens?

He did say it installed.

He most likely means it finished loading in the Dock.

Well if that's the case and he takes up programming he's going to have learn to say what he means and mean what he says!

EDIT: Of course then there's typos and interrupted message posting errors.

Look for it in Spotlight.

Hi I also have a similar problem, Xcode seems to have just vanished and spotlight doesn't show any traces of it when used to search for it... Any ideas?
