Updating remote desktop

11 Nov

More than 40 Automator actions are included with Apple Remote Desktop, which you can apply to set desktop pictures, Finder preferences, Energy Saver preferences, default time zones, and more. Turn on Curtain Mode to block the local user’s view of their desktop.

The screen-sharing features of Apple Remote Desktop allow you to provide immediate help to remote users, saving time for both of you. This is perfect when you’re updating a public display.

Head over there to download and install the update.

Following are answers to some of the questions you might have about the update. Can I install this update on a computer that has the RDP 8.0 update installed?

Take an existing package, from either Apple or a third party, and simply use the Install Package to copy and install on your client computers. Apple Remote Desktop will alert your system’s users to upgrades and even restart machines remotely.

Auto Install allows you to stage software on a Task Server, which then takes care of distributing the packages for installation on client computers.

Apple Remote Desktop is the award-winning OS X desktop management system for software distribution, asset management, and remote assistance.

No RDP server-side improvements (such as Windows 7 SP1 virtual machine or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with Remote Desktop Session Host) are made available as part of this update. While installing the update I am seeing the following installation error: “This update is not applicable.” What should I do? Can I install the update on computers running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1?

This error can occur when the update has already been installed or the prerequisite packages are not installed. Yes, the update can be installed on computers running Windows Server 2008 R2. How do I verify that the update package has installed successfully?

I have Windows Embedded Standard 7 based thin clients.

When will the RDP 8.1 update be available for my devices?
