nope, unfortunately also for free Apple Developers there is no 4.2 XCode version available for SL anymore. It was only available for a short time. At least I couldn't find it the other day though I looked thorougly.

"All downloads" is not on that page. 😠
The only Xcode 4.2 I can find is on this page:
https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action
... and it's for Lion.
Adios,
Cactus Dan

Unfortunately this forum doesn't support pasting inline images to prove the opposite 🙂

Insert "XCode 4.2" in the search box of the download area (that you've already found). It'll list:

- Xcode 4.2.1 for Lion
- Xcode 4.2 for Lion
- Xcode 4.2 for Snow Leopard

Best regards,

Can't check that from my account. In that case you either have the possiblity to upgrade to Mountain Lion for $20 and get XCode 4.4 for free from the Appstore, or you have to spend $99 for the paid membership @Apple (and get access to all - old and new - compilers and OS versions).

Best regards,

Wilfried

Howdy,

Well, I took the plunge and paid the $99 to upgrade my Apple Developer Membership. Seems like I went the free route several years ago because it was way too expensive. I reckon they came down on their paid membership price at some point, and I missed it. Oh well, at least it is tax deductible.

I did the same thing a little while back because it was the only way that I could get Xcode 4.1. $99 is still a bit steep, but you get development and OS betas which is nice (if you don't mind being a guinea pig). 🙂

Howdy,

Well crap! I just received the email saying I now have access, but when I log in and go to the download page for Xcode 4.2, there is still no Snow Leopard version. 😠

I deleted all my cookies, cleared the history and emptied the cache in Safari, but still no Snow Leopard download of Xcode 4.2.

What now?

No, it really is there. Once you have logged in, go to https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action?name=Xcode and XCode 4.2 for SL is at the bottom of the second page.

I agree they don't make it easy to find though.

But note that the page says '21-40 of 71- but yours says '21-40 of 55'. For some reason you aren't seeing some entries.

When I logged in I went to the iOS dev center, then on that page just below the link to XCode 4.4.1 there's another link to older versions of XCode. That's how I found the 4.2 release.

Howdy,

Well, the good news is that I found it through a very old bookmark:

... and I'm downloading it now.

The bad news is I may have just wasted the $99.

According to a few posts I've found in Apple's forum, the download wouldn't work without the $99 membership (access denied...).

I think Apple machines are gorgeous (just splashed out on a new iMac) but their web site(s) are appalling. I wanted to download XCode 4.4 but you can't get that direct from the Apple dev site, it takes you to the Mac App Store. OK, fair enough, but when you try to download XCode it redirects you again to of all things iTunes. There, it turns out that your $99 Apple dev ID is not good enough. You need an Apple ID. Well, I had one so I tried it and iTunes flatly refused to accept it, despite letting me download anything else with tat ID - but not XCode. In the end I had to create a brand-new Apple ID just to get it. The whole thing is just a mess.

Yes, I saw that thread, too, and when I clicked on the direct link that was posted, I also got the "Access Denied" alert, even after paying the $99 membership.

But then I found the old bookmark (in Safari on my old G4 iMac still running Tiger) and Voilà!, there it was.

Is it possible that my paid membership is not in the system yet, but the Xcode 4.2 for Snow Leopard is still available for free memberships through the old bookmark?

Yep.  Had the same thing. I've had an Apple ID for almost a decade but when I purchased my latest Mac Dev Program enrollment, they said that I had to get a new Apple ID (they told me directly because there would be some conflict for some reason that I can't remember).  Basically, my enrollment was withdrawn and refunded until I created a new Apple ID and then it was finalized.  As you say, a mess. 😄

OK, today it appears in the list, although I've already downloaded it from the old bookmark.

But, I'm having problems installing it on my core duo macbook pro (32bit) running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. The installation fails. Is Xcode 4.2 only for 64bit?

I've never owned a 32 bit-only Intel Mac and therefore can't check. My 4.2 version (build 4c199) contains 32 and 64 bit code though - and you're able to start it in 32 & 64 bit mode by checking the run mode in the info box of the Finder.

Howdy,

Unfortunately, I purchased 2 of the first generation Macs (MacbookPro and iMac) that were 32bit only intel Core Duo processors. Now I'm stuck with them because they're not upgradable. 😢

I also got stuck with Windows 7 32bit on my Core 2 Quad PC (don't know why I didn't check that when I bought it), although I could possibly upgrade that to 64bit version of Windows 7 because the machine is certainly 64bit capable.

Howdy,

I'm re-downloading 4.2 right now from the original page I posted, thinking that maybe there was an issue with the one from the old bookmark, but I noticed that Xcode 4.0 for Snow Leopard is also available from that original page. So, I'm wondering if I have to upgrade the 3.2 version to Xcode 4.0 first before I can upgrade to 4.2?

Adios,
