This update broke iSync for me (the application icon gets the infamous “no entry” overlay, and opening iSync results in “You can’t open the application iSync because it is not supported on this architecture”).

Per the Apple discussions, solution is to re-apply the update. I’m just downloading now, and will take a look at package contents to see if there’s a simpler way to update iSync…

If you use checkpoint secureclient for OSX dont upgrade to 10.5.4 - it doesnt work!

My CheckPoint SecureClient still works fine...

@Thomas - thanks for that. I'll investigate some more. It stopped working right after the 10.5.4 first reboot.

Re Checkpoint, which version are you using? There are a few betas out there which “kind of” address various issues in 10.5.x… Also, SecureClient has a documented clash with VMware (it disables keyboard input in VMs).

Returning to the issue, I realised that I moved iSync to Applications/Utilities ages ago, and the updater tried to update iSync in Applications—hence the dodgy icon. The “real” version of iSync was OK.

Not the smartest thing to do. :-)

Smart seems to be different from Intuitive. I also moved all Apple Apps into an "Apple Stuff" Folder to get rid of it... and then had issues updating...

After the 10.5.4 install isync stopped working for me too...
Rubbish update from apple!

@Ben Poole: The update broke iSync for me also, and i didn't move iSync to anywhere else. I had to download and install the combo update, a hefty 554 MB download, which fixed it. I didn't bother to check the download packages, had no time for that.

It's amazing how many times solutions to our problems are far more simple than we originally thought. I also moved the iSync app to my "Apple Stuff" folder and that's why the old version was not working.

I appreciate you providing your feedback.
