Unfortunately, this post has been a bad one and many visitors has been complaining that the solution shown below doesn’t work at all. Read on at your own risk. If you know of a surefire 100% working way of getting the iPhone SDK running on a Windows PC, please leave a comment.
Register and download the iPhone SDK free version here.
The downloaded iPhone SDK software will have a .dmg extension. The dmg extension is what confuses most developers who are used to the windows environment. It’s just a native Mac extension format but can be easily converted so that it can be run/used on windows.
In order to do so you need to convert the .dmg (Disk iMaGe) file to an ISO file. Convert DMG to ISO, than burn it onto a DVD-ROM, once you have it burned, put the DVD into your computer’s drive and run the installer.
THIS WILL NEVER WORK!
EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOW ON A DISK THE INSTALLER WILL NOT RUN IN WINDOWS.
Does this work?
Wow, you’re a tool! converting the DMG file to an ISO and burning it to a DVD might allow you to VIEW the contents of the DMG file, but it will certainly not allow you to run the iPhone SDK in Windows.
Well done. You now have a DVD that windows can READ. Do you care to inform your readers how to run the installer, seeing how it’s a MacOS binary, not a Win32 executable? Actually, since you apparently don’t know the difference, what business would you have trying to use the iPhone SDK? (Maybe you should just compile an EXE, and copy that straight to the phone? With your logic, that should work, right?)
I’m sorry but this is wishful thinking.
I followed this guide but there is no way this works, and I felt stupid for even having tried afterwards.
You need a MAC to run MAC software.
You can’t possibly be serious. What a joke.

Has anybody attempted this yet? Want to give it a shot, but curious if we can install on a PC.
So, I did exactly as you said, and upon inserting the DVD into the computer after the burn, I could only see to open the file, and no installer. What do I do now?
