Scanning iOS from Windows

I have a Windows laptop that has Fortify installed however as I previously found out you must have xcode installed on a Mac to scan the code and that the xcode binaries need to be in your path.  My question being as I have absolutely no experience with Macs is how does everyone go about this?  Do you use Macs and map a windows drive to their xcode directory?  Do you create VMs with the Mac OS and xcode?  Do you install SCA on a Mac (this would be easiest)?

Any help in setting up whatever is needed to scan iOS code would be appreciated.

Hi Mike, as per the Compilers table in the doc, our iOS support uses the clang and llvm-gcc compilers. These are only available on Mac OS. As such, unfortunately it's not actually possible to scan iOS from Windows itself. You will need to either obtain a Mac and install SCA there or create a VM with Mac OS - although there's potentially legal issues with the second option. The Mac OS EULA states it must be run on Apple hardware.
