I have updated the xcode 4.3.2 to 4.5 . I have mac version 10.7.3. dmg file which i have downloaded is not recognized by the mac . So I have to update the mac version also so from which version mac supports Xcode 4.5 ?


I'm running Xcode 4.5.1 on my iMac with OS X 10.7.5. Do a software update on your Mac to get the latest OS X 10.7.x. That should allow you to install Xcode 4.5.1.
