Greetings @ and welcome to our Community.

Unfortunately, there is no way to deploy on Macs using ARD at this time. There is an unsupported script by LabTech you could try using.

Respectfully guys, your Mac installer is an embarrassment. This should be mass deployable, and whoever writes the installer might want to take a little time to get up to speed with Apple’s installer guidelines. To have an installer that can only be run from within /Applications (but not always) is absurd. All the other AV vendors seem able to offer a keyed installer - why can’t you, and that as a bare minimum?

From one of the Mac agent release notes below: System Tray icon? Has the author ever used a Mac? Unless they snuck one in without my noticing, the Mac doesn’t have one of those. That’s a Win thing.
