10.7: Xcode updating when the installer is moved
Authored by: Spliff on Aug 29, '11 10:42:04AM

Not working for me in 10.6.8. My Lion installer is still in my Applications folder and I ran App Store to get the 10.7.1 update. Instead of use updating the installer, it's downloading the entire 4 GB 10.7.1 Lion installer.

Do you have to be running Lion for this to work?

Yes, it seems that you have to be running Lion to get the benefits of the "intelligent updates."

This seems to be because the App Store is scanning your Lion (and XCode) installs to see what components you need to update your installer, and whatever feature Apple has coded to do this is not present in Snow Leopard.

10.7: Xcode updating when the installer is moved

I have Lion installed (and updated to 10.7.1 via Software Update). The Lion 10.7 installer is still on my hard disk, although not in the Applications folder. App Store showed an update available, so I clicked "Update". The entire 3.5 GB 10.7.1 installer is now downloading, not just a delta update.
