Alfred finds only applications that are at top level. Even it fails to find apps in folders that I indicated in the Search Scope. In spotlight that apps are at first place.

(sorry for my english). Precedent version works just fine. Search scope the same.

Thank you. Grazie.

Could you please download this tool and drag one of the applications which isn't found into it:

There could be a permissions issue if the raw mdls didn't work. Could you try reindexing using this rather more brute force method:

once reindex has completed (could be an hour), type 'reload' in Alfred.

Just remember that spotlight can find the apps with no problem...

 

Spotlight does internal caching so this doesn't mean much. In every case where applications haven't been found since V2's launch, it has been down to the OS X metadata.
