Good evening,

I wish to acquire GlBasic to do rapid development for Iphone / iPad.

I do not have a MacBook or MacPro for developing in Objective-c to build an application on a iPhone / iPad.

I search a compiler on Windows OS for developping application on iPad/Iphone.

Can I, develop and compile an application with GlBasicon Windows Seven to deploy the GlBasic App to iphone/ iPad without recompiling and using a Mac Pc ?

thx

Simple answer is no. You need a Mac (and an Apple dev license).
I came. I saw. I played.

the longer answer:

apple does not allow to install the SDK to any other things else a mac. so glbasic would be illegal if provided something like this.
MacBook Pro 2,2 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, 8600M GT
Core i3 - 3,07 GHz, 8 GB Ram, 2.5 TB HDD, Geforce GTX 260+ OC

Unfortunately, even a new Mac mini isn't cheap, especially for what little you get - your best bet would be to look on eBay for something cheap (must have an Intel processor).

I bought a mini Mac intel 2ghz 2gb ram hd250 with broken DVD at 375 € on eBay.
Only for iPhone compiling. Installed vmware+xp just for glbasic. I didnt have a portable computer. So 2 machines in one.

I suggest to you to try PARALLELS instead vmware, anyway CHECK the system requirements before..(maybe 2Gb RAM for XP are good).

(...it's a bit expensive, about 79€ but work very well!)

Ive used both and found performance to be on pretty similar. My experience is VMware is slightly quicker but there are those that would say Parallels is the king.

I ended up actually going for bootcamp as I wanted maximum performance. I can still see the bootcamp partition from OS X so its fine.

And if you want to emulate a Mac, it will only work on a Mac anyway.

Due to license restrictions the new Mac OS X as Guest feature is only available to users with Apple/Mac hardware, and only for "Mac OS X Server" installations as a guest OS. Any other combination is unsupported and will therefore not work. Any post that talks about a different combination will be removed without warning. Any discussions of ways to get around the Apple SLA will also be removed.
Its possible that it does actually work, but isn't supported on non-Windows machines.
