App Store :: Apps Are Missing And All Listed As Hidden But Can't Unhide The Apps
May 30, 2012
Under purchases I'm getting "you have not purchased any apps." Under Itunes in the Cloud all my apps are listed as hidden but when I click "view hidden purchases" it says I do not have any hidden purchases. I have three Macs and all are experiencing the same issue so this is an account problem and not a computer software problem. The funny thing is that it's still recognizing updates.Yes, I've tried signing out and back in to view my account with no luck. The only thing I did weird last night was I disabled the Itunes store and automatic downloading on one computer. This morning when I had the above problem I put all the settings back.
Apps that have been closed with the X checkbox. Are they gone forever? I thought they were just hidden and could be brought back. I can't seem to find a way to do that. The problem started because the App Store says I have an app installed when it's not in my Applications folder. Where is it looking to see if an app is installed? There are no receipts I could find.
is there any sensible way to order App Store purchases aside from purchase date, which seems the least useful.
Over the last few days I've noticed a problem with missing icons. It seems to mainly effect icons in the Trash but I have one or two missing icons for videos and apps within the Finder and on the Desktop. The icon is completely gone - I have to click on the filename to select it. Quicklook works OK (for video).
I can't think of anything I've installed that would have done it except Onyx, but I haven't run that in weeks. I did repair permissions a few days ago but I doubt that could break this. It persists after a reboot. I can't get it to happen on command, it just randomly occurs. Creating a New Folder always works OK.
Receiving individual Final Cut X redemption codes for our fleet of MAC Minis begs the question; "How do we deploy this software". There must be a better(easier faster way) than to download, install and configure each machine separately. (This will take weeks). This software cannot, it seems, be deployed by Apple Remote Desktop. Is there anyway of downloading FC X to one MAC and cloning the image to the rest of the fleet?
New to Mac, I like having a clean dock with only a minimum amount of shortcuts to applications and to then use Spotlight to find others when I need them.
It seems though that not all applications appear in a spotlight search. For example I tried searching for iMovie but all I got was a dictionary definition. So I opened it up through the applications folder, and then after that spotlight found it ok.
The same is true for other applications that I haven't yet opened, such as iDVD.
Instead of going through and finding all the apps that are not indexed and opening them, is there a universal way to reindex spotlight?
This started about a month ago, the icons on my doc started disappearing and appearing rotating between apps. Then it finally stopped on Firefox IMovie Terminal System Preferences and text edit. Then the apps started disappearing Ones I have found missing so far are dictionary and calculator.
How do Universal apps, actually compare in performance as compared to Intel binary apps? Yeah, sure, they're "native" speeds, but surely there must be some erformance hit? I mean, it DOES contain two binaries.
I've had this very, very strange issue occurring over the past few days now where recently created files go missing or updated files revert back to earlier versions. It happens when I disconnect from my Time Machine external LaCie drive after backup. Even apps went missing and I had to reinstall them. It's like my machine is automatically reverted to two days earlier when I disconnect the external drive. When it started:
The first time I experienced the problem was *after* I added my Macintosh HD (internal) drive as an exclusion to the Spotlight list of excluded drives/folders. I did this because my Mail app would not allow me to select "Entire Message" when searching mail folders. A popular thread told me that if I added and then removed my (internal) hard drive to/from Spotlight, that it would re-index it, thereby finding the mail files again allowing me to search the message bodies. That's when the files and apps disappeared and/or reverted to previous versions. Again, the files reappear after I plug into the external Time Machine (LaCie) drive. But when I disconnect - they're gone! Other preferences have disappeared too - I've been prompted to re-enter serial #s I entered days prior for new software I added.

I am writing to you in regard to a download my 6 year old son had done with out me being aware to the fact he knows the password.I have recieved the bill from apps store and suddenly found out that both on the 10th of April and on the 11th of May my son had downloaded some itemes for his Ice Age Village. I was shocked when I saw it and more shocked to see the total amount that came out.I had no idea that my son knows the password.I am asking you please to refund me on these items. you can subtract this game of my i pad and take everything he bought back.
Yesterday I bought Grand Theft Auto San Andreas with my virtual credit card (which I can only use to pay things online).Anyways, no money is still gone from my account. I got the game and it works, but it shows I paid only 1€ to Apple... So how do I find out if I have paid for the app?
