   Upgrading CGP in Snow Leopard

Question 

Just upgraded to Snow Leopard and have found that I cannot upgrade the version.

Answer 

The problem is in how Apple has changed the behavior of installation receipts.

What you get now is a file called /Library/Receipts/InstallHistory.plist. And when CGP is installed, a section in this file with the following contents:

-----
       <dict>
               <key>date</key>
               <date>2009-10-12T16:48:52Z</date>
               <key>displayName</key>
               <string>CommuniGate Pro</string>
               <key>displayVersion</key>
               <string></string>
               <key>packageIdentifiers</key>
               <array>
                       <string>com.stalker.communigatepro</string>
               </array>
               <key>processName</key>
               <string>Installer</string>
       </dict>
-----

In addition, you also will also get the following files:

/var/db/receipts/com.stalker.communigatepro.bom
/var/db/receipts/com.stalker.communigatepro.plist

So to upgrade you may need to text edit the InstallHistory.plist via vi and remove the two files in the receipt directory.
