Install and use Apple's free dual-screen VNC server
Authored by: johnblommers on Oct 15, '04 06:25:26PM

Hooooold on.

So I'm running ARD 1.2 client and management program and they were working just fine. So I installed the new and free 2.1 desktop client and it totally hosed my management program. It either hangs up on launch or complains it's not installed properly. Well, re-installing both the ARD 1.2 client and agent fixes nothing.

I have not found a way to undo this horrible damage as there is no way to de-install packages in a supported manner in this new OS of Steve's. I did try the OSXGNU Tool called OSXPM but it is not able to remove most of these ARD packages due to incompatibility.

Time for an archive and install ...

There wasn't really a good built-in way to uninstall software (particularly system-level software, as this is) in the old pre-Steve OS. So while your complaint is noted, it's not like Mac OS X is any different than past Mac OSes in this regard.
