Hi,

 

I am trying to install iOS SDK on windows 7 plateform. I have installed node on my system (as per instruction on http://www2.developerforce.com/en/mobile/getting-started/ios). No I am trying to run below command on command promt.

 

>npm install forceios

 

I am getting below result.

 Not able to find any solution for this error. Also tried to remove os dependency (as per https://github.com/dmcquay/node-apac/pull/32 ) but i didn't find os list in package.json file.

 

Anybody have idea how to install forceios on windows 7 plateform?

Thanks Bhariharan,

Do you have any idea how to install iOS SDK on windows 7?

@dapanchal - You can NOT install iOS SDK on Windows 7 (or any version of Windows for that matter). You need a Mac OS machine to use the Apple iOS SDK.

 

Hope this helps.

@gaurav: Means i want to develop one sample app but for that i need to have mac machine right?

Yes, if you are creating a native iOS app using the Apple iOS SDK. There are other ways to build iOS apps as well but Apple recommends you use its native toolchain. You may want to search around on the Internet a bit more - this info is readily availalbe.
