How to Install XCode on Window XP PC?

Can anyone tell me how I can install XCode for iOS Development on Window XP? I have read some articles regarding this issue. They are saying that I need a file called: OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion bootable DVD(.iso file)

Can anyone tell me where I can get it from? P.S It is Urgent Regards

There is no real possibility to install XCode on Windows. The file you say (OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion bootable DVD(.iso file)) is the install-disc (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iso_file) of MAC OSX. On some windows PCs you are able to install MAC OSX in a VM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vm_ware) or as your main OS.

It isnt recommend to do this. If you want to build iPhone Apps you have to use a Mac... Sorry about that. :(

Thank You Sir. I have been using the Virtual Machine or VM for Mountain Lion installation Regards

No Problem. :-)
