A few years ago (pre-Apple App store) I received a digital download of ARD Admin 3.6.1 from Apple, as the DVD installer quit working on version 10.whatever. Fast forward to today, and I am trying to install 3.6.1 digitally on my shiny new Mac Pro (can you even call it a tower anymore?), and the installer keeps upchucking at the very end. Digging through the logs, the only appreciable bit of data I can find is this :


"Cannot install on volume / because it is disabled."


Near as I can tell, the 3.6.1 installer doesn't meet some requirement or hurdle that exists in Mavericks. I received the digital version from Apple because the DVD version quit working because of OS upgrades, now the digital version is no longer working.  So where do I go from here? I am really going to be upset if I have to throw down the full price of ARD *again* (this will be like the third time) for what is, essentially, the same program.


*RANT ON*  I know I am far from alone in tiring of Apple treating ARD like a rented, red-headed step-mule. Why does Apple allow such craptacular, yet necessary, software to exist? This software is, hands down, the most un-Apple thing in the history of Apple. Apple should either devote the resources (God knows they can afford it) to make ARD world-class, or just kill it off already and let a third-party come in and do it better. *RANT OFF*
