    Do you still have your original Snow Leopard install disc?

    If you do, that includes a compatible version of Xcode for that OS.
    Alternatively, you can go to
    and search for "Xcode 3" in the search bar.

    Unfortunately, you need to have a Developer Account to access that page. Don't worry, you can create a free one.:)

    XCode 4 compability with Snow Leopard


    as rightly stated by Peterk12 Snow Leopard came with XCode 3 on its disk. There is/are Snow Leopard compatible versions of XCode 4, I am using XCode 4.0.2.

    Downloading this is, normally, only possible in the Apple Developer Zone for which you - as also stated already - a developer account; which is free of charge though. No subscription etc.

    According to this thread on the Apple Support forum, though, there is a way to find alternative downloads through googling with the "Google hack":
    XCode 4.2 Build 4C199 "download"

    Though these will not be official Apple sites/servers, and some of them might be a bit dubious. Considering that there is always the possbility of a Trojan being put in a modified disk image, this is at your own risk.
