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/
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.

    Hi there,

    I have also tried al kinds of installs and uninstalls, and no matter what I try, I can’t find the secureclient anywhere.
    Any ideas.?

    Even after performing the above operations, the checkpoint secure client didn’t get un-installed. So, I searched on finder for “secureclient” and could find /opt/CP*/scuninstall
    and when I ran the “scuninstall” file, it successfully un-installed Checkpoint vpn secure client.

    Any ideas on when Secure Client will be supported in Snow Leopard?
