Clean uninstall of Checkpoint SecureClient on Snow Leopard
Posted on 07 September 2009
Once you want to uninstall SecureClient R56 HFA1 on Snow Leopard, it might leave 2 or 3 files on your receipts folder. This is not a big issue as long you are not reinstalling the SecureClient. But if so, the installer will end with “succeeded”. Unfortunately SecureClient is not in the Application folder nor in /opt. Nothing really is installed.
After you uninstalled SecureClient with Checkpoints uninstaller (Application/Checkpoint/uninstall) you have to remove 2 or 3 files in a receipts folder. Afterwards a new installation of SecureClient should be really succeed in showing up the Application.
Open the Terminal Application from the utilities folder and type:
sudo rm -rf /private/var/db/receipts/com.checkpoint.secureclient.R56.bom sudo rm -rf /private/var/db/receipts/com.checkpoint.secureclient.R56.plist sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/SecureClient_B634000031_1.pkg/
The last line might be different depending on the Name of the package you installed with.
