Problem: I developed an application via Xcode and published it in the App Store. I then continued developing it and removed the application I had installed from the AppStore.
When I try to re-install it from the AppStore I got the following message:
“If you want to replace it with this version, move the existing app to the trash”
I deleted all the data for this application from
- the application itself of course
But still. It was not possible to re-install it. Finally I stumbled across lsregister – a tool for the Launch Service Database and this command helped me:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain user
After that, the install worked.
