Well, I finally got Xcode 4.2 installed on the Macbook Pro, but only after wiping it clean, reformatting it to a single partition (had windows XP on the second), reinstalling Snow Leopard 10.6.0, upgrading it to 10.6.8, installing Xcode 4.0 first and finally upgrading that to Xcode 4.2.
Now I have to relearn how to use Xcode, because it's changed dramatically, before I can start compiling the cinema4d sdk project. What a pain!
So what am I going to have to do when I get to the Windows version? What are the specs to compile that version?
Being curious: Could it be, that you've used a Windows tool/app that modifies the hd (partition structure)? A friend of mine had an installation of OS X & Win too (2 partitions on one hd), where he couldn't apply the MLion installation (the installer refused). Turned out, that he cloned the hd on a bigger hd and used Windows tools to enlarge the Windows partition. The mismatch between the partition informations stored on OS X and Windows then caused the MLion installer to stop the installation.
Can't thing of other reasons why you should have to wipe the whole hd and install Xcode 4 before; my 10.6.8 partition that I've set up recently (as my old hd broke) contains only XCode 3.2.6 and XCode 4.2 (I didn't want to install XCode 4.0, as I knew it was very crash-prone).
Regarding VS: Install VS 2010 and the latest patches (and its service pack).
