    Does anyone know where I can get the developer tools that are compatible with this version of OS X? The App store doesn't sam to have it and since my developer membership expired, I can't download it the way that I did for earlier versions of OS X when I was still a member. Thanks for looking!

    1. Start here:

    2. Find the words "Previous versions of Xcode" and click the link "downloaded here".

    3. Log in using your Apple ID. It doesn't need to be a paid Developer ID, but it does need to be registered as a Developer ID.

    4. You should end up here (requires dev login to see):

    5. Enter xcode 4 into the text box that filters output. The list should filter down to about 15-20 items. Xcode 4 is the last version compatible with Lion. All versions of Xcode 5 and higher need Mtn Lion or later.

    If you want even older versions of Xcode, try xcode 3 or xcode 2 as the filter.

    I found the starting page linked at #1 by googling older versions of xcode.

    Thank you very much! I tried using a search engine as well but for some reason did not notice that I could find/downlaod older versions without being an existing paid developer. SO thank you again!

    And the older versions I have because I just recently got the Mac Pro 1,1 and upgraded from PowerPC Macs.
