Sure, if you're handy with bash. It's just a Cocoa application package that includes a couple of daemons that might or might not be running, and a simple startup script file. Easy to kill and delete with a privileged account.

Certainly. Trivially easy.

It would be great if they move to Apple package installer, so the software can be installed via ARD.

That is incorrect because you can use ssh to connect to client's Mac and use sh to execute script to un-install. Here's the code:

/usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/killall pitond

/usr/bin/sudo /bin/rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/RetroClient

/usr/bin/sudo /bin/rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/RetroRun

/usr/bin/sudo /bin/rm -rf /Library/Preferences/Retroclient.state

/usr/bin/sudo /bin/rm -rf "/Applications/Retrospect Client.app"

 

Worked for me, tho.
