just went ahead an installed the latest version, sidestepping the issue
for now. But RDp is a different animal.
The quick fix might be to locate the "companion launcher jar" if I knew
what it was and why it can't seem to find it. Otherwise, what manual
steps should I take to remove the installation manager and RDp from my
