Workflows won't launch


Recommended Posts

I'm unable to launch user created workflows. When I type the workflow trigger in Alfred, the workflow is initially identified (first screenshot), but a second later the workflow selection disappears and the Fallback Results appear (second screenshot). The problem happens with all user created workflows, but the Alfred features (eg. 'define a word') work as expected.


When I first began using Alfred, everything worked fine. This problem began happening in Alfred 4 on MacOS 12 and has continued through Alfred 5 on MacOS 13.  


Alfred 5.0.6

MacOS 13.0.1 (22A400)


Thank you,

Welcome @Mabes,


The likeliest explanation is that a macOS update has borked your installation of the Apple Developer Tools. To fix it, open a terminal and run:


xcode-select --install


A dialog will walk you though the rest of the process. It takes two clicks (and waiting a bit).

To be sure of what’s happening, run a workflow with the debugger open.
