# Downloading XCode
First, create a free Apple developer account. Go to the
[Apple Developer Center](https://developer.apple.com/downloads), and
click Register. Fill out the first page with your account information.
The second page is a developer survey, which you can skip. Just go to
the bottom and click "Continue".
Confirm your account and log in.
# OS X 10.5
from the Apple Developer Center.
If that link doesn't work, go to the
[downloads page](https://developer.apple.com/downloads) and search for
# Other versions
If you have an older version of OS X, ask a TA for help. If you have a
newer version of OS X but still want to use this installation method
(**not** necessary if you are using the virtual machine), get XCode from
the App Store.
You are now ready to [for the Installfest](/installfest/osx_novm)!
