Cannot re-install Check Point VPN macOS

Hello everyone!

I'm facing the issue that I cannot install (re-install) the latest checkpoint version (E80.89). I also tried to install older versions but I always get the same error message (see picture as well):

"Check Point Endpoint Security VPN can not be installed on this computer
Check Point Endpoint Security is installed on this computer. Please install the VPN blade as part of Endpoint Security."

Before installing the latest version of Checkpoint Endpoint Security VPN, I have used the uninstaller located in /Library/Applications Support/Checkpoint...

I was already looking for files which could be part of the VPN application, but I could find anymore.

 

I hope that you guys can help me out, because I need to run this application...

Re: Cannot re-install Check Point VPN macOS

"Before installing the latest version of Checkpoint Endpoint Security VPN, I have used the uninstaller located in /Library/Applications Support/Checkpoint..." - and what was shown on the command line then ? Was the CheckPoint folder removed ?

You also should note the differences between Endpoint Security client for Mac and Endpoint Security VPN for Mac !

- To uninstall the E80.89 Endpoint Security client on Mac computers:
1. Open a terminal window.
2. Run: sudo "/Library/Application Support/Checkpoint/Endpoint Security/uninstall.sh"

- To uninstall Endpoint Security VPN for Mac from a client computer:
1. Double-click the Endpoint_Security_VPN.dmg file.
After the disk image mounts to the file system, a Finder window opens with the contents of the package.
2. Double-click the Uninstaller to start the uninstall process.
3. Do the on-screen instructions.

After using the uninstall file in the application support folder, the checkpoint folder was completely deleted, as expected.
If I can the Uninstaller in the DMG it shows "No such file directory" (see attachment).

I weird that I am not able to install the application, more over I'm not able to delete something what isn't installed anymore.

I recommend opening a TAC case so we can investigate this further.

Re: Cannot re-install Check Point VPN macOS

Same problem here.

Mac OS 10.13

My problem is that the Application Support folder does not exist anymore.

Because of that I can't uninstall or reinstall.

There's no uninstall script and de install fails.

I think overwrite installation should be allowed.

I would restore the A<pplication Support folder using your Time Machine Backup !
