Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. RESOLVED I moved the Parallels Desktop.app out of /Applications, and then moved it back. Now Alfred sees it just fine. Weird.
  2. I installed Alfred 1.2 from the App Store. Then realized that the newest versions were not being installed via the App Store, so I deleted the App Store version and installed Alfred v2 from the web site. Current setup: * Alfred 2.8.3 (435) * OS X 10.11.3 So the bug is: I have Parallels Desktop installed (normal install; app is located at /Applications/Parallels Desktop.app). When searching with Alfred it will not find Parallels Desktop. Typing "par" locates only "Parental Controls". Typing "parallel" just prompts me to search the web. Ditto "parallels desktop". I checked Spotlight. Spotlight finds the app if I type "par" or "parallel" just fine. To be on the safe side I rebuilt the Spotlight metadata index yesterday, which resulted in no change to Spotlight's ability to locate Parallels, nor in Alfred's inability to locate the app. I also checked several other apps that are installed. Alfred found all of them without incident. I use Parallels quite a bit and it's awfully frustrating to have to switch to spotlight or Launchpad to open it when I'm used to opening everything via Alfred.
