I'm no Dev, but if you are looking to compile Apps for a version of OSX that will very soon be 2 re-writes out of date (with the introduction of ML shortly) I'm curious to know why you want to?I was looking for the steps to submit to the app store, but could only find Lion-specific steps. Does anyone know where I can find instructions for
A niche market of millions of potential customers who can't upgrade.Lion makes sense, but SL as good as it was, is going the way of all versions pre Leopard.
Xcode 4.2 runs on Snow Leopard. Do you know for a fact that can't be used?Bottom line is I don't think you can develop a pre-Lion app for the App Store without Lion/XCode 4.
Since when was 47.5% a niche while 30.5% was something more?Lion makes sense, but SL as good as it was, is going the way of all versions pre Leopard.
Then you have a few options:Suffice it to say that I don't have a mac that can run Lion.
App Store has 4.3:
XCode downloads on developer.apple.com:
I'm not going to download 1.6Gb just to test if it will work on SL.
And where do we download this mythical XCode 4.2 for Snow Leopard? Every download of XCode 4.2 states it is for Lion. That's the issue - where do we get XCode 4.2 for Snow Leopard?Uh? Did I miss something?
The concern was; Can you create an app that executes on Snow Leopard with something less than Lion/Xcode 4.3+ and is that older development combination capable of submitting the result to the store. (If I recall correctly, Snow Leopard is the oldest version os OS X that can download from the Mac app store.) (I say Xcode 4.3+ because less than 4.3 can't be run on Lion from what I hear and your capture demonstrates.)
So, can one use Snow Leopard and Xcode 4.2 to develop an app that runs on SL and use Xcode 4.2 to submit the executable to the store? I can, still, use this combination to develop and submit iOS apps to the iOS app store.

I couldn't find a link for Snow Leopard, but I'm on a free account, that may be the difference. When I've sold enough copies of my app to afford it I'll get a paid account...You login to your Apple iOS development account and download from there.
Scroll down to where it says "Xcode 4.2 for Snow Leopard" and click the blue link below that. If for some reason you don't see that then look for and click on 'View all downloads'. Narrow the Categories to 'Developer Tools' and enter 'Xcode 4.2' into the search box and hit the return key.
I do have a paid iOS developer account but I don't think that matters. Anyone know for sure? It late and I don't have time to figure that out right now.
I don't know why it isn't available via an OS X developer account. At least not on my free OS X account which hasn't been signed up for an iOS account.
