Sorry, I was unable to get any debug menus to appear in ARD3. I even tried running the command under sudo, it had no effect.

The prefs key is wrong in the hint, the correct way to get this to work is..

defaults write com.apple.RemoteDesktop IncludeDebugMenu 1

Enable Apple Remote Desktop 3 debug menu

The code is wrong, try this:

defaults write com.apple.RemoteDesktop IncludeDebugMenu 1

The debug menu doesn't seem to do much though, just lets you change some colors in the UI.

Works now.

The corrected hint works, although the debug menus don't seem terribly interesting.

People keep posting hints like this, with an integer '1' slapped in where a boolean TRUE value belongs.

The really REALLY correct way would be:

defaults write com.apple.RemoteDesktop IncludeDebugMenu -bool TRUE

Regardless of how it's stored in the xml plist, it's best to be in the habit of using the proper commands. But what am I if not a blowhard pedant and stickler for data integrity?

The Debug menu just allows you to set various colours.
