Updating Mac to Mavericks and Apple Remote Desktop

Hello

I finally had the time to update my main teaching machine to Mavericks OSX yesterday. Everything went smoothly until I went to go and push out a Keynote document to my students using Apple Remote Desktop (ARD). As the school technology teacher and technology coordinator, I use ARD to manage all of the machines on our campus. It makes it very easy to fix something remotely, install software, update machines, etc. I have nearly 400 machines listed on my ARD account. So, you can imagine my panic when I went to open ARD for the first time since updating and it gave me an error message that said my version of ARD was not compatible with this version of OSX. Ok, so I went to update software and it was not listed as an available update. Now, I was really starting to panic…but have no fear! It is a super easy fix and I created this PDF so that if this happens to you, it will save you some time and energy. Upgrading to Mavericks and Apple Remote Desktop PDF
