I purchased ARD last week from the Mac Appstore and installed it on my MacBook Pro under my default user account. This account has no administrator privileges.
Everytime I start ARD a "Remote Desktop Setup" window shows, asking me to enter the location of the Task Server.
But no matter what I enter (or do not enter), this window keeps coming back.
User Disk Utility to repair permissions, but that did not help.
I'm sure I can fix it by giving my account the administrator privileges, but I want to avoid that.
Are there other options to get rid of this window?
I think it is a privilege issue when setting up the program. Your changes will stick if you interact with the popup as an admin, but won't as a regular user. I like to work in a non-admin account, so this is how I fixed it to work in a regular user account:
I changed my user account in which ARD was installed to have admin privileges (reboot required), launched ARD, indicated that I did not want to use a remote task server by not checking the box, clicked done, allowed ARD to load and then quit. I relaunched ARD to ensure the popup did not pop up -- it did not. I then removed admin privileges from my user account (reboot required). Now, even as a regular user, I no longer get that popup on startup -- it just launches straight into ARD.
Note, I'm running OSX 10.6.7
