    I've been running the PB's on my iMac for sometime, so was fairly confident yesterday upgrading my MBA in the knowledge that everything would work after a few minor updates. But there's always something that slips through the net!

    I regularly connect back to my iMac using VPN and Screen Sharing from my MBA, but never have a need the other way so hadn't tried the Screen Sharing app in OSX 10.11. Whenever I try to open on my MBA it just crashes. Fortunately VNC still works, although it a little slower and not as nice to use. Anyone else have the same problem?

    I've sent the following crash log to Apple in the hope this get's fixed.

    Not crashing, but not working either. I was regularly, and without any problems, using the built-in Screen Sharing from my main Mavericks system to an older Snow Leopard system. Since "upgrading" to El Capitan the ability to even getting screen sharing to work is iffy, and when I do get a connection it will lock up within a few minutes of use. If 10.11.1 doesn't fix this and a couple of other little issues (like Time Machine not working at all) it's fallback time.

    Noticed that if I started screen sharing from Finder that it was working OK, so checked and the Screen Sharing app in Library > Core Services was different to the one I had in my Applications folder.

    I deleted the one in Applications (which was crashing on launch) and copied the one from Core Services and everything working again :D

    Also updated to 10.11.1, although I suspect this wasn't the problem.
