Hi!
I bought Xcode 4 and it's been installing for more than an hour and a half.
Is that normal?
Thanks in advance for your answers.

Installing or downloading? xCode is 4 GB large, so it may well be still downloading it.

Ok. It worked!

If you also get the "installing infinitely" problem while installing Xcode 4, do this:

-Go to where you downloaded the app.
-Right-click it and choose "Show content packages"
-Go to Contents -> Resources -> Run the .mpkg file in there.

Once you run the .mpkg it should all go smoothly.

P.S.: Also leave 10+GB of space in your installation drive.
