    For the moment, I just removed the Version Cue CS4 from the System Preferences panel. The same 2 errors were shown after reboot:

     

    Sender:  com.apple.launchctl.Aqua[104]

    Message: launchctl: Please convert the following to launchd: /etc/mach_init_per_user.d/com.adobe.versioncueCS4.monitor.plist

     

    Sender: com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[102]

    Message: (0x100302d80.mach_init.VersionCueCS4monitor) Failed to check-in!

     

    So now, which file shoul I try to remove: "com.adobe.versioncueCS4.monitor.plist" or

    "com.adobe.versioncueCS4.plist"?

    I believe the two "errors" are related. The first is just a message to the developer that he needs to change the format of that plist as it's been deprecated and may not work in a future version of the OS. What is the date on that file? It's possible that it's left over from an earlier version of VersionCue and has already been replaced by the one in LaunchDaemons.

     

    The second message may well disappear if you remove the one form /private/etc/mach_init_per_user.d/.

    I have several Adobe CS4 appications installed. Did you mean uninstalling these applications or only the Version Cue? I never installed it, it just appeared in the System Preferences after the installation of one of the CS4 applications. Version Cue is not listed in "Applications". What would be the correct way to uninstall it?

    I would guess that all of your CS4 Applications are using the Prefs Pane to determine when updates are available. It's probably time to contact Adobe to see what the best way to make certain you have the latest update to Version Cue.

    Apparently this is a well documented problem.

     

    You can find the latest version of Version Cue CS4.0.1 here.

     

    Then I Googled: "version cue cs4 macintosh site:adobe.com" without the quotes and got over 8,000 hits.

     

    Bottom line seems to be to upgrade to CS5 which did away with Version Cue.

    What would be the right way to deistall - just move Dropbox.app into trash?

    Reintall, then use the Uninstall function.

     

    Might be HW, did you try another Ethernet cable yet?

    I deleted Version Cue CS4 from the System Preferences panel

    If it is v4.0.1 you should be able to put it back without resurrecting the problem.

    and removed

    "com.adobe.versioncueCS4.monitor.plist" from private/etc/mach_init_per_user.d/.

    Now, both error messages have disappeared.

    What is the date on com.adobe.versioncueCS4.monitor.plist? If it's older than the Prefs Pane then it probably is from an older installation and need not be restored.

     

    Also, it appears I was wrong about what Version Cue is. From the update description it would seem to be used to keep track of various CS4 project versions. I can't tell much about it from the update as it uses the Adobe propriatary installer, which checks for the installed version first and then patches it. I can't be certain whether Version Cue even uses the internet.

    I already deleted Version Cue from the Preferences Panel so I can't check now...

    It's in your trash can unless you emptied it. You can restore it by dragging it from the Trash to /Library/PreferencePanes/ and authenticating.

    Ah, not likely the cable then.
