I'm a Registered Apple Developer but I'm not a member of any program (either iOS or Mac). It looks like I can't access XCode documentation anymore. If I open XCode and go to Help->Developer Documentation, the help window opens with the following error:

"You do not have access to this resource based on your membership.

Access to technical resources such as pre-release software and associated documentation, and information related to distributing iOS or Mac apps on the App Store are benefits offered to Apple Developer Program members.

Either the Apple ID and password you entered is not associated with an Apple Developer Program, or the Program that you are enrolled in does not have access to this resource."

Isn't it possible to access free documentation anymore?

    Anyway, the error message still confuses me: from what I understand, if you don't install a library locally, the help should access the documentation online, isn't it?


    You would think. I have found that the Developer Tools don't get the same level of fit and finish as the consumer applications.

    I am also having this problem. I cannot access fundamental API documentation, even something as low-level as the documentation for UIView, NSArray, and so on. What is going on? I am registered for the developer program and never had problems with this before. I am not fully licensed yet, but that shouldn't be necessary for accessing these documentations. I went into the preferences and selected the checkbox that says "Install Updates Automatically" but that didn't change anything.

    What is going on?!

    BIG thanks,

     

    I was so frustrated with no access to the help with the same access denied due to lack of privledges.

    At least I found the solution here.

     

    I really thougth I was gonna have to pay to get access to the helper.

    If you are having this issue, but local docs are installed, try removing the iOS 5.0 library and adding it again via Preferences-> Documentation. The Base URL changed when iOS 5 was released (no longer pre-release), but the updater doesn't trigger an update of that automatically.
