Run multiple copies of Remote Desktop 2.0 beta

"The app has a proper package installer"

You mean an unnecessary package installer...

They could have just put the app in the dmg, and eliminated the need to run Installer at all.

I agree - its bad design to see a package installer for an application install. This is taking control away from the user - I do not have control of what files are installed to which location when I run a package installer. Even if I am provided that control during the given package install, I dont know that fact prior to running the installer.

I think a package installation is only appropriate for items like libraries or codecs, etc, which require specific files to be placed in specific target folders. Most users place their applications in /Applications but that is optional and can vary.
