Do you have a computer that is pre ARD client update 3.5.2? if so, you could try making your installer with ARD on that client. And you could report the issue.
And you can always send Feedback about ARD to Apple.
In thread Can't install Apple Remote Desktop 3.5.1 custom installer on Lion 10.7.3, Eric Shaheen suggested looking in //private/tmp/RemoteDesktopClientInstaller/ to see if ARD actually did create the installer; and if so, to copy it to the desktop. in the same thread gavin0001 said he was able to modify the 3.5.2 client update to make a custom installer.
You might also want to check out thread I can't get Custom Installer to create accounts on Lion. I'm using ARD 3.5.1.

I am also having this issue. I bought ARD from the App Store yesterday. Everything seem to be working but when I try to create a custom installer it fails right at the end. I get the same message as Pirateon3G"An unexpected error has occured while creating a custom installer. Please try again".
When I create an installer without makeing it custom everything works fine.

I was able to find the installer that I created with ARD 3.6.1 in /private/tmp but I found that it had an old creation date and when I manually install it on a 10.8.2 client it didn't seem to do anything.
I've been wanting to put this package into my NetInstall for some time now to create a local account as well as setting the remote access settings. It's so close yet it feel so close yet so far.
Am I doing something wrong with the package?

No, I haven't found a fix for this yet! I were in a little bit of a panic when i posted here but did not get any helpful reponses so I started deploying the standard installer and then accessed every single computer. It took a lot of time but everything is now in place, but I will not do it again so a fix for this problem would be nice.
