I am rolling out Sophos EndPoint on MAC computers, i have created the package, on some of the computers its already running older version of MAC, when i uninstall it (applications-->Trash) restart the computer and try to install newer version of MAC it says, its already running Sophos Endpoint, not sure how to completely remove it?

It looks like Sophos has retired support for os x 10.5

So I would guess that the installer will not work in 10.5 and is causing the error.

EdTechy answered that.  Support for 10.5 ended in April.

Unless the older version still gets updates....
You might check out ClamXAV for them if it doesn't: http://www.clamxav.com/

This removes the older version "Cannot Install this version of Sophos Installer with this Version of MAC "
downloads.sophos.com/inst/lOuP9B_GUlJNkYhUqCBXEAZD00MzIy/savosx80sa.dmg


And this removes Sophos.
