Upgrading PGP Desktop

Tip: When upgrading PGP Desktop on a Mac OS X 10.6 system, you are prompted to allow various PGP components (such as the PGP Engine) to access information in your keychain. This prompt can appear several times as there are several components that require access to the keychain. To avoid seeing this prompt more than once, be sure to select Always Allow.

Do one of the following:
 
From PGP Desktop 9.x for Mac OS X
Begin the installation process for PGP Desktop 10.x for Mac OS X.
The existing version of PGP Desktop for Mac OS X is automatically uninstalled, then PGP Desktop 10.x for Mac OS X is installed. Existing keyrings and PGP Virtual Disk files are usable in the upgraded version.
 
From PGP Desktop 8.x for Mac OS X
You must manually uninstall PGP Desktop 8.x for Mac OS X prior to installing PGP Desktop 10.x for Mac OS X. Existing keyrings and PGP Virtual Disk files are usable in the upgraded version.
 
 
Upgrading from PGP Universal Satellite
 
Do one of the following:
From PGP Universal Satellite 2.x for Mac OS X
Begin the installation process for PGP Desktop 10.x for Mac OS X. Existing versions of PGP Universal Satellite for Mac OS X are automatically uninstalled, then PGP Desktop 10.x for Mac OS X is installed. Existing settings are retained.
 
From PGP Universal Satellite version 1.2 or previous for Mac OS
Manually uninstall the existing version prior to installing PGP Desktop 10.x for Mac OS X. Then begin the installation of PGP Desktop 10.x for Mac OS X.
 

Caution: Installing any version of PGP Universal Satellite on top of PGP Desktop 10.x for Mac OS X is an unsupported configuration. Neither program will work correctly. Uninstall both programs and then reinstall only PGP Desktop.
