How to fix "installed" apps appearing in Mac App Store Update Pane
Authored by: Unsoluble on Aug 10, '12 09:27:48AM

This doesn't seem to address all possible situations in which you've got a zombie app in the MAS... I've had one showing up in there as needing an update for over a month (started under 10.7.4, continues under 10.8). Zero other copies on any connected drives, and receipts removed; still showing up.

Now, I *do* have a Time Capsule backup where another copy of the app is probably located, but it's only mounted while it's backing up. Also, there will be all *sorts* of old MAS apps in there that I have since deleted from my main drive, but none of those are showing up in the store something's wrong with this one app.

BTW, I have had the Windows Phone 7 Connector showing up as updatable in the MAS for months, now, on all of my Macs; and updating or reinstalling it changes nothing: it still shows up with an "Update" instead of "Installed" description, on the right side of the "Purchased" part of the MAS window (it isn't explicitly offered as an update, however, also because there's currently no update available for this application).

Very strange, indeed...
