ARA Personal Server and MacOS 8

I had ARA Personal Server 2.0 running well in OS 7.5.5, but when I installed MacOS 8, I could not get access to _Server_, but only new version of ARA _Client_, which is a part of OS8.  After installing ARA Server on top of OS8, I can not access ARA Setup control panel at all, it says: unspecified error.

The quistion is: is ARA Aerver 2.0 compatible wit hPS8 at all, and if it is, how can I fix the problem and make it work.

Thanks.

Turn off all your extensions except for the network stuff,OT components, TCP/IP, etc., and the control panel for ARA. If you still do not have access, place the ARA CP in the extensions folder. This will force it to load earlier. These are possible workarounds to the real fix which is to upgrade to ARA 3.0.

Thanks.  It appears that ARA installer did not replace some of version 2.1 files that came with System 8, and as a result ARA Server dod not work right.  When I manually trashed all ARA 2.1 components (both Control panel and extensions), then installation was successful.  So far I see not problems with ARA 2.0 running in System 8.  Eventually I'll upgrade it to 3.0
