    Hey there peoples! I've just got a few questions regarding the SDK, so I'm sorry if the questions have already been answered.

    1) Is it possible to use the SDK on an offline computer, as I have a computer which can't be connected to the internet (parents lmao), so does the SDK check for validation each time it's run/first time it's run?
    2) If I was to sell games on the App Store, does the money that is earnt (minus apple's cut) go to a paypal account? or banked?
    3) I've been programming for a few years now, but I just wanted to know how complicated the SDK is and the language (it's objective c isn't it?) compared to something like Visual Basic or C++?
    4) I've looked into "Become a Registered iPhone Developer", but is it the same for the iTouch right? or do you have to download a seperate add/program to work for the iTouch?
    5) Checking the iPhone Developer Program, it says: "Technical Requirement:
    To develop with iPhone SDK you must have an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X Leopard." Would it be possible to run the SDK on a windows system?

    Thanks!

    1. Nope. Use anytime anywhere.
    2. You can choose weather you get your money from any service.
    3. Object c. Not a lot of experience needed. It's pretty simple.
    4. Same goes with iPod touch. Same code same everything.
    5. There should be some programs for windows. Though I do not know of any since I run OSX. Search around the forum, I think you will find something.

    No you cannot run SDK on windows at all, nor is there an alternative.

    I've looked into VMWare and I had planned to purchase a copy of Mac OSX, install it in VMWare and run it from there (I simply do not have the money to purchase a mac computer). Is this proven to work? Does it actually work to have VMWare running the iPhone SDK?

    (Disclaimer: This post is based on my current knowledge that VMware is similiar to Hackintoshing; it may not be, which would render this post useless. I may be wrong.)

    If installing OSX via VMware is like Hackintoshing, then you will need drivers, etc. for your system.

    Honestly, if you can find those drivers, I'd suggest Hackintoshing, if at all possible.
