Deploying Xcode

While Xcode is a single .app that is very easy to deploy, there are several support packages that must be installed when you first launch Xcode. If your end users do not have admin rights or it is for a lab setup, it is ideal to have all these packages installed ahead of time so they are not prompted to do so.  Unforunately, these packages are not for download on the developer site nor support.apple.com.  Tim Sutton has done some extensive research into how the support packages are installed and how to acquire them for yourself.  Check out the details on this process here.
