    Im wanting to download xcode - But the apple website seems to be sending me around in circles, while im trying to find a link to download it.

    I first go to -
    https://developer.apple.com/mac/ - Click on Download Xcode 3.2.2 and iPhone SDK 3.2 for Snow Leopard

    end up here - https://developer.apple.com/technologies/xcode.html
    "To download Xcode log in to the iPhone Dev Center or Mac Dev Center" I click on Mac Dev Center - It the takes me to the log in page... And returns me to

    Am i that stupid that I cannot find the link to download xcode?

    OK. Found it on my install disc :(

    You must first login before you can download Xcode.

    Read the "Requirements" on this page:

    Must be registered as an Apple Developer. If you have already registered, log in with the Apple ID and password you used to register.​

    Obvious question: Are you logged in?

    If not, then login.

    If you can't login because you're not registered, then register so you can login.

    If you are logged in, then the page https://developer.apple.com/mac/ should show a list of things you can download, and other links you can click. Scroll down to see the Xcode downloads.

    If you don't see the list of things to download, then you're probably not logged in. Or maybe your login didn't work, in which case you should contact the Developer Support Center and ask them what's wrong with your account.

    I`m having the same problem. I see the welcome message "Hi, my_name" at Mac Dev Center`s Frontpage, so I`m logged in. Any ideas?

    Go to the following URL to download Xcode:


    If you need more detailed instructions, read this article. The article covers downloading older versions of Xcode, but it will also allow you to download Xcode 3.2.2.

    I wouldn't. The version on the OS DVDs are old now. Bug fixes have been released since then.

    I've had this exact problem on developer.apple.com before with Safari, and clearing my cache and cookies fixed the issue. It seems to crop up for me most when accessing the developer forums. Also, you can try accessing the site using firefox or chrome.
