View Full Version : Duplicate applications to Open With...

12-21-2005, 08:53 AM
I noticed that I have duplicate application names in Open With, when I control-click on a document. The same thing applies when I want to open a dictionary of an application in Script Editor and with the applicationd shown in Automator. There should be a cache file for these application names might be deleted, I am nor sure. Could be the Applications folder on cloned drive, reason for this? But, I must add that this happens regardless the cloned drive mounted or not.

Your LaunchServices database needs to be rebuilt, Cuneyt. Run the following in Terminal (all three lines at once):

Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister \
-kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

That should take care of it.
