Re: You have to create this UTI.
Authored by: atverd on Jun 06, '05 01:42:43AM

I think this is it, but the problems is that simple moving a bundle between directories doesn't always update the internal UTIs database (or whatever it is). The only reliable way I could find is to create an archive of the bundle (right click, create archive f.e.), then remove the bundle and empty trash, then unpack the archive back. Looks like LaunchServices cares only about creation and removal of an object and ignoring it's modifications.
I hope someone can point me to a simpler method...

You could always take the brute force method of deleting the launch services cache remembering that this will reset a lot of user remembered details with regards to opening/launching applications:

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