View Full Version : Automated Execution

I restored my backup from my fw drive. Everything seems to be ok. But when the automated backup script is run, it halts at "Choose Application:" dialog with "Where is SuperDuper.app".

Even though I give the right path, during every automated backup it halts at the same dialog requiring manual intervention

That's strange, zack. Did you name the source and destination the same?

I think you can probably resolve this by rebuilding the Launch Services database. Use the following command:

/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

Tried that, I get the same error

Hey it works! Thanks!

I have absolutely no idea what that script does, but I just ran it and it works!

That command rebuilds an internal OSX database that contains the location of various applications and the like. Glad it worked!
