Just saw there's an updated (A)RD Widget.


I've downloaded it but seems exactly the same as previous versions.


  • I can't view widget of MacMini Server. Instead has yellow triangle with exclamation point.
  • Can't interact/launch ARD by clicking on widget of any individual compter, SL or Lion.
  • Grey screen with or without spinning wheel for Lion clients.


Anyone getting the 3.6 widget to funcrtion as described?
