If you’re a Mac user, it’s pretty easy to get XCode for Windows. However, if you’re not a Mac user, there are some steps that need to be taken before you can install XCode on Windows.
Install the Command Line Tools
To install the Command Line Tools, you need to be a member of the Apple Developer Program. You also need an Apple ID and a Mac computer with access to the app store.
To get started, go to this page on the Apple Developer site: https://developer.apple.com/xcode/. Click Download Xcode 10 (Command Line Tools). When prompted with which version of OS X/macOS you would like to download, choose either Mac OS X version 10 or later or macOS version 10.11 El Capitan or later (or later). After downloading it, double click on “Mac OS X_Xcode10_CliTvosKeylogos” in order for it install properly
Install Xcode from App Store
The first step is to go to the app store. Then, search for Xcode and click on the blue download button. This will take you to a window where you can choose between installing it on your computer or downloading it directly from Apple’s servers. If you choose “direct download,” taking up more space than necessary, we recommend choosing “install.”
Once installed (and assuming that your computer meets all requirements), open up Xcode from its desktop icon or start menu shortcut by following these steps:
- Click on Start > All Programs > Xcode 9 Beta 4 (or whatever version number matches yours).
- Enter developer credentials if prompted during installation process; if not prompted, ignore this step until further notice because there may be some confusion as we explain below!
Install Mac OS X Beta Software Enrollment Program
To get started, you will need to sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program. Once you have done that, you can download and install Xcode from the Mac App Store on your Windows computer.
The next step is to follow these steps:
- Open a web browser and go to http://beta.apple.com/en-us/developer or http://developer.apple.com/programs/.
- Click on “Get Started” in the upper right corner of your screen (or select it from any other link). This will open up another page where you can choose between different categories such as iOS Dev Tools or tvOS Dev Tools etc… You want an option titled “Apple Beta Software Program” which should come first among these choices; if not then try selecting something else but make sure there’s no mistake in picking out this category!
Download and Configure Xcode
You can download and install Xcode from the Mac App Store. The process is straightforward, but you will need to configure a few settings in order to get started.
To begin, open Xcode and click on “Preferences” in the menu bar of your window. In this menu, click on “Downloads.” This will display all available versions of Xcode for different operating systems (including Windows). Select one that’s compatible with your computer’s hardware configuration; then click “Install” at the bottom right corner of your window when prompted by macOS before continuing with installation steps below.*
Get the latest version of Xcode from the Apple App Store.
- Download the latest version of Xcode from the Apple App Store.
- Make sure you have a good internet connection and enough space on your computer for the download.
- Have a fully charged battery, preferably with at least half an hour left in it (if not, plug in).
Insert your Apple ID and password when prompted to do so.
When you first open Xcode, you will be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password. This is so that Xcode can authenticate with the App Store and download any updates or plugins that might be required.
You can use the same Apple ID that you use on your iPhone or iPad, but it’s not necessary if there are no other devices associated with it (such as a Mac).
Open up Xcode for Windows.
To open Xcode for Windows, you’ll need to download the installer and run it. Once the installer is finished downloading, double-click on it to open up Xcode in your browser.
You can either wait until XCode has finished installing or cancel out of the process by pressing Ctrl+C (Windows) or Command+C (Mac).

Wait for XCode to finish installing.
You will want to wait for XCode to finish installing before you start working with your computer. As long as you’re patient, it shouldn’t take too long—but if it does take a while and you’re worried about what might be happening behind the scenes, don’t worry! Just restart your computer (or wait until later) and everything should work out just fine.
You can get a free code checker tool if you want to make sure you have no viruses or other problems before installing Xcode on your computer
If you want to make sure that your computer is virus-free and malware-free, download the free Code Checker Tool from Apple.
- Open the Code Checker Tool on your computer and click “Run a Scan.”
- The program will scan your system for viruses or other problems. If there are no issues found, then you’re ready to install XCode on your computer!
