2 NWPs?

Post by ngazidja » 2013-05-10 00:58:04

Not sure if this is a NWP question or an OS question but I've noticed something curious. Going to the info box in Finder (the one where you select a file and click cmd-I) and selecting "Open with" gives me a list of apps, on which NWP2 appears twice. I've searched my hard drive and I only have one copy of NWP. Any suggestions? Makes no difference to anything, whichever one I choose the file opens with my one and only copy of NWP. Just curious.

The problem can be fixed by rebuilding Launch Services database by using a system maintenance app like Cocktail etc.

You can type the following line in terminal (copy and paste, really).

Code: Select all

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