Administrator software failed to start due to an unexpected error

Not a terribly useful message from ARD after a fresh install of 10.5.3:
"The Remote Desktop Administrator software failed to start due to an unexpected error."
"The Remote Desktop software may not be installed correctly or the computer may require a restart"
It installed something in the system on first launch then popped up with this message. My main concern is that it pooched my system in the process by replacing something new in Mac OS X 10.5.3 with something old from ARD 3.2...
Restarting now but who knows, might not be back for a while... %-\

Kill the "ARDAgent" program, either in Activity Monitor or Terminal, and it will start back up again. When you see it running again(make sure it's a new instance via the PID), you should be able to start Remote Desktop up without any problems after that.

  • The Remote Desktop administrator software failed to start due to an unexpected error...

    Hi all...
    Suddenly, I'm getting this error message when I try to open ARD. It was working a week ago and I'm not aware of changing anything. Any advice?
    This is the 3.6.1 version of the ARD admin and I have the 3.6.2 Client installed (that was the way it was before, too, when it was working).
    Note: I did try a fix from the forums that was posted in 2009, which required deleting the ARDAgent from the RemoteManagement folder in System/Core Services... and then reinstalling again using the Apple ARD Admin download for same. It worked for one run of the program, then the error came back.
    What do you guys think?

    Hmphf.
    You may have to reinstall the Remote Desktop SW. See if that helps.
    I don't think it's a coincidence that this update "fixed" the Remote Desktop SUID warning, and it also removed the potential update from my computer which I had placed on "Ignore" since I did not need it and did not need the warning, either. So there is a connection between this update and the Remote Desktop SW.

  • Remote desktop administrator software failed to start

    I just upgraded to the new ARD client and now I cannot start Remote Desktop Administrator. It says "The Remote Desktop Administrator software failed to start due to an unexpected error. The remote desktop software may not be installed correctly or the computer may require a restart."
    Again, this happened after I install the ARD client update just released by Apple on my MBP 10.5.8.
    I need to get ARD Administrator back up and running. How?

    This is the most feedback I've ever gotten to any post.
    After much trial and error here is the solution I came up with:
    1. follow the instructions in the following link. Most importantly, make sure you follow the instructions on removing the 10.2 clients. I know that's not what we're dealing with here but it is necessary:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2577?viewlocale=en_US
    2. Put the remote desktop Admin app in the trash and empty the trash.
    3. Download and install the ARD 3.2.2 client via the following link:
    http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/application_updates/appleremotedeskt op322client.html
    4. Reinstall the remote desktop administrative software in the Applications directory. (Actually, what I did was zip the ARD admin app, then trashed the non-zipped app and emptied the trash, then unzipped my zipped ARD Admin app and made sure the app was in the Applications directory. Didn't need to mess with the CD this way.)
    5. Download and install the ARD Admin 3.3 update. It should now recognize that ARD Admin is installed on the computer and update it.
    6. Try to launch the Admin app. It should work now.
    I believe these are all the steps. After this I ran software update and it said I had no software to update. It looks as though the ARD Admin updater also updates the client software.

    and domain users who are in the local administrators group are no longer able to configure backup and restore.  Domain administrators are able to configure backups.
    This is a new issue, which began occuring sometime in the last 2 months.  3 months ago, users were able to configure backups without issue, and those computers with backups configured are still able to run their backups and do restores; however the
    settings can no longer be changed. 
    Clearly something in the domain is doing this, but Group Policy has not been altered, and I can find no setting that would be doing this in any case.  Any help is appreciated. 

    Hi,
    So you mean you have tried different accounts in the local Administrator group and all of them failed?
    If so, please check what group the local Administrator group belongs to? Does it belong to a group with limited privileges, such as the Guests group?

  • Error 244: The DataFinder cannot start due to an internal error.

    I have LabVIEW 2010 and, during Windows start-up, this error message pops up:
    "The DataFinder cannot start due to an internal error.
    (244): Please wait till the National Instruments PSP Service is running and try starting the DataFinder again or reboot your computer."
    I have had this error message pop up for the past year so it is a recurring thing. It started showing up a few months after I had installed the LabVIEW program onto my computer, so I am not sure on what caused this message to consistently pop up. I find that it also causes a delay in the starting up of my computer--my other start-up applications will begin to show only when I close the error window. Please help! Thank you.
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    Hi xcontradictorx,
    It sounds like the National Instruments PSP Server Locator might not be started. Could you go to Control Panel >> Administrator Tools >> Services and locate the National Instruments PSP Server Locator? Double-click on it and make sure that the service is started. If it is, stop it and start it again (just by hitting the stop and start buttons). If it is not, start it, then go to the Recovery Tab and choose Restart the Service as the action for First, Second, and Subsequent failures. 
    If after change the settings for the PSP service the issue continues I would think that for some reason the PSP service is just being started late for some reason. Could you do a test real quick: disable the DataFinder in msconfig, reboot, then run the DataFinder.exe from C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\DataFinderDesktop\bin. This should place the MyDataFinder app in your system tray (it looks like a yellow gear). 
    If this is successful, then we will need to change the order of startup services such that the DataFinder just starts after the PSP service. 
    Try the following: 
    1) Locate the DataFinder entry from the registry. Located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 
    2) Delete the DataFinder entry 
    3) Add a shortcut of DataFinder.exe to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup 
    4) Reboot 
    This should do all the standard Windows Startup (like starting services, etc.) and then launch the DataFinder. 
    One question: do you use the DataFinder at all? Either with DIAdem or the Data Finder toolkit? If not, you could try removing it from the Startup items. Just go to Start >> Run... and type "msconfig". Choose the Startup tab, locate DataFinder, and deselect it. Click apply. This will probably get rid of the error message.

    Hello BrandonVonk,
    The toolkit wouldn't show up in your installed programs list as it is more like a plugin to LabVIEW. Instead, pull up NI License Manager and go to Local Licenses > LabVIEW XXXX > Toolkits and see if it is listed amongst the toolkits you have installed. There should be a geen box next to it to indicate that it has been installed and activated.
    Hope this helps,

  • Datafinder can't start due to an internal error.

  • On my RMBP (10.8.2) Aperture 3.4.3 won't start due to a database error

    On my RMBP (10.8.2) Aperture 3.4.3 will not start due to a database error.  Command+Option start of Aperture is giving me the same error and not giving me a repair/rebuild choice.  My iPhoto library (migrated from iPhoto to Aperture a couple of weeks ago) is kept on an external LaCie SSD which I have been unmounting when I take the MBP to work.  I did notice earlier today that I had a '/Volumes/LaCie' and '/Volumes/LaCie 1'.  Rebooting the MBP caused the '/Volumes/LaCie 1' to go away and I only see '/Volumes/LaCie' now.
    The precise error I'm getting is "There was an error opening the database for the library “/Volumes/LaCie/iPhoto Library”. "
    Suggestions?

      It was in the middle of a Flickr sync and I disconnected the external LaCie cable (Thunderbolt) because I coult not get the disk to dismount because  Aperture had it open while sync'ing.  A lesson learned was to unset the automatic Flickr sync option from Aperture.
    This can corrupt your Aperture library, and even the file system on the drive so that you may be unable to mount it. Really no good idea.
    Aperture has a buil-in facility to stop running activities. Launch the Activity Viewer (from the main menu bar):
         Window > Show Activity.
    In this window you can see the status of ongoing activities and may cancel them safely.
