Is it possible to install xcode on windows?, and if so then whats the best way?
Im trying to follow along with the c programming videos and im at the video where he downloads xcode. Im on a windows so i googled around to download it and im getting lots of conflict on whether it is even possible or not to download it to windows. And between those who say yes it is possible but have different methods ( like downloading something called mountain lion or virtual box) im kinda stumped right now, any help would be appreciated.
It is not possible to run Xcode on the Windows operating system without installing Mac OS onto a virtual machine.
Your best bet would be to own an Apple computer, though you could try downloading VirtualBox and buying a copy of the latest Mac OS to install. VirtualBox allows you to essentially run another computer within a virtual hard drive, but for things like Xcode, I'm guessing you'd probably need a lot of RAM to make it work well within a VirtualBox.
Here's a good tutorial: https://blog.udemy.com/xcode-on-windows/
