    so i just downloade xcode 4.1 from the appstore now for free, it installed, now in Launchpad i had the icon "Install Xcode" which from what i understand is the installer right? and since i dont need it i dumped it in the trash, and i also went into the applications folder on Macintosh HD and removed "Install Xcode" aswell,

    Now, xcode is still installed, but if i open the Mac Appstore, it says xcode is not installed, what gives? was i not supposed to remove "Install Xcode" ?

    The Xcode installer is not installed. When you download Xcode, you aren't actually downloading Xcode, you're just downloading the installer. So the Mac App Store is correct, you don't have Xcode installer installed. But your Xcode should still be there :)

    There's a script in the developer folder that will delete the Developer folder, system headers, and CLI tools.

    Xcode missing from application folder

    I've installed the latest version of Xcode. . My Launchpad has the folder that contains all the developer tools, but when I look in the applications folder I don't see the developer folder/developer tools.

    They're in /Developer, not /Applications/Developer

    There are books. I recommend Cocoa Programming For Mac OS X, Third Edition. It might be a bit dated (it uses Xcode 3.1 from Leopard), but if you're smart, you'll be able to note the changes and how it works with Xcode 4.
