Comment 1 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2012-12-06 13:56:09 UTC
Can you try to install this file:

/Users/mikaelsundstrom/Library/Caches/XamarinInstaller/MonoTouch/downloads/monotouch-eval-6.0.6.pkg

and see what happens?
Comment 2 matti.hjelm 2012-12-07 03:21:04 UTC
Ok, thank you: the error message now says:

"THis version of MonoTouch requires OSX Lion 10.7 or later"

I have (as stated above) OS X 10.6.8 and I'm using a rather old MacBook (2009) that can not be upgradet to OS X 10.7.

Which version of  MonoTouch can I use?
Comment 3 matti.hjelm 2012-12-07 04:50:12 UTC
Where can I download old versions of Monotouch?
Comment 4 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2012-12-07 04:59:27 UTC
The most recent version of MonoTouch supporting Snow Leopard is 5.4.

You can download it from your store account (https://store.xamarin.com/Account/Products - click on the Most Recent Releases link).
