Upgrading the Client Software

This section contains information on installing Apple Remote Desktop 3 on client
computers. Since Apple Remote Desktop client software was automatically included on
the clients running Mac OS X v10.3 and later, all Apple Remote Desktop 3 installations
are upgrade installations, even if you are setting up clients for the first time.

You can only upgrade Apple Remote Desktop v1.x and v2.x computers if they meet the
minimum system requirements (see “System Requirements for Apple Remote Desktop”
on page 41). Please note that there is no supported “downgrade” to any previous
version, and if you upgrade the client computers to version 3.1, you will not be able to
administer them with earlier versions of Remote Desktop.

There are two methods to upgrade the client computer’s software.
