    I had a similar problem trying to get rid of an application. I'll tell you what worked for me in case it helps you with DAVE.

    On some iMacs in a computer classroom, I used Software Update to update Apple Remote Desktop. But the new version didn't work. When I tried to reinstall the old version, it claimed it was doing an UPDATE (not a new install) and wouldn't replace the new version with the old version. Uninstalling the older version didn't change this behavior. The trick, as it turned out, was to remove the Apple Remote Desktop .pkg file from the /Library/Receipts folder. Then the installer would do a NEW install just fine. Maybe DAVE has leftover files there too.

    P.S. Great member name, Huked on Fonick!
