How to rebuild the LaunchServices database
Authored by: UnknownPPC on Jul 27, '05 08:40:33AM

I had a strange problem in Tiger that when I clicked on a folder in the dock or dragthing it would launch iPhoto or Entourage. Running this command fixed everything.

How to rebuild the LaunchServices database
Authored by: luhmann on Aug 04, '05 03:38:07PM

I tried a couple of hints here. This is the one that finally worked for me. I added -f, and I also appended the path to my personal applications folder (within the applications folder) at the end:

/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -f -domain local -domain system -domain user "/Applications/MyApps"
