10.11.6 iMac update lost my apps

I installed the 10.11.6 update on my iMac (2007) last night and now she starts, but none of my apps can be found. The icons just tell me the apps are damaged when you press on, and when I open the application directory it contains only the email app and a directory empty utility.

I might have to rely on my timemachine backup to move things again.

Same thing here - just changed my PC so very disappointed.

  • New laptop will be not updated of the apps (0 x 80070490)


    My new laptop seems unable to update or install apps on the Store Windows, and I got it 2 days.
    Applications appear as "pending" and will later say I need to "restart the PC to complete the installation of an update" - I've now lost count of how many times I rebooted.
    When you run the "convenience store" it says it has fixed the problems listed:
    -Error in database that can be updated Windows found 0 x 80070490 (fixed)
    -Components Windows Update must be repaired (fixed)
    However, the same thing happens whenever I restart the pc, and when I run again convenience store, he finds the same problems.
    Does anyone know how to fix this?
    Thank you very much

  • Updated Creative Cloud Apps on both computers.

    Updated Creative Cloud Apps on both computers. I have to do in each update TWICE, it's twice the bandwidth (hours), the costs and inconveniences. Adobe spoke on the online chat Support - no help and no empathy, it's a very serious fault and not what I expect from Adobe.

    Why updates cannot be downloaded on a computer and then used to update the other?

    Currently my MacPro is up to date, my iMac is waiting on 12 updates.

    I hope someone out there can help.

    If you have enough computer knowledge to use usb to transfer files updated, you can circumvent the application of cc desktop and use direct downloads:

    update manually:

  • iPad claims a bad Apple ID when updates to the app in the App Store


    When I try to update using the updates shown in app store, for couple of apps App Store shows a different iTunes ID and its asking to specify a password. Can you help me get rid of this and continue to update?

    I had already tried to check the settings of the App Store and iTunes and there the user credentials and also I activated app updated it. Its does not help to resolve the situation.

    Can someone please?

    Thank you!

    Kind regards

    Pranab N.V.

    Applications (and everything that is downloaded from the iTunes Store) are linked to the account which has downloaded. The id that displays in the updates tab should be the id who them downloaded on your iPad (or downloaded to the computer iTunes library which you synchronized of)-to get them linked to your account, you need to remove the apps and buy/download in your account.

  • 10.11.6 updating killed my apps from user account

    I just installed the latest updates on the App Store (10.11.6 I guess) to find when restarting the Apps on my main user account (an administrator account) no longer work. The account is running very slow and lazy, struggling to load anything and beach regular balling.

    I have a second account, which is a Standard account and Apps work fine here. Since the Standard account, I created a second administrator account and the new account works fine too. Two of these other accounts running at a normal speed with no problems.

    This is what is happening on my main administrator account:

    During the initial load:

    That's what the new administrator account always sees in the same folders that confirms that there is in fact the Apps:

  • updates to iOS app show filled in the App Store but not apps actually updates

    There's something strange happening very recently with the app on my iPhone and iPad updates. Two of them are on the latest version of iOS (9.3.2). Apps would show that they are updated in the App Store, but they are actually not updated. This is the second time that this has happened and I am writing this message I try to solve problems. The first time it happened I had to remove the app and reinstall it. I'm going...

    1. I opened the App Store.
    2. Press update of all.
    3. I saw the download of updates and the finish.
    4. Open the button is appeared next to the application in the list of updates.

    The problem:

    1. Applications will not open by typing open the button next to them.
    2. I went to the home screen and the applications in question are darker color.
    3. I typed on these applications and they changed the "Loading"... "which means that they have not actually completed the setting to.
    4. The apps started to download it again.
    5. Applications is is stuck in download.
    6. I turned both devices power off, then turn it back on.
    7. On my iPad: apps started to redownload and completed. Applications are now open.
    8. On my iPhone: applications made "Waiting."... "then"Loading"... "and have not finished downloading.

    I'll post this and continue to wait for applications to download. I don't want to remove them and reinstall because they are multiple applications I would you connect again and synchronizes again that I find annoying. I'll try to update this post after the completed download apps, if they end up actually or if I'll end up resettlement.

    I posted this at 09:00. It is now 16:45, and only one of the applications is completely downloaded. It is not a problem with the internet, because I can stream movies very well. Another application that has been "updated" this morning went dark. I typed it and it has been "Waiting."... "for 10 minutes now.

  • Cannot get rid of update in the App Store

    My MacBook Air downloaded Digital Camera create updated 6.20, but in the App Store it's always appear as needing to be downloaded?

    Sounds on the right for the App Store, quite often you think you downloaded an update, but the App Store loses connection

    but still said it was installed in a list of 30 days.

    To check obtenu got to about this Mac, click reporting system then the software, then facilities, if the update is not listed it has failed to

    Download and install.

    Try to download from here instead.

  • My apps don't download or update on the App Store, what to do?


    My App Store is not automatically updated all the apps for a few weeks, even though I have the "update automatically" setting on. (And no, these updates don't require Wi - Fi update, my 4G mobile data should have been fine.) Now, it has got to the point where I can't update all apps even manually. I click the icon "update" and the circle of progress appears but doesn't begin to increase. It is just stuck. How can I fix?

    I am also unable to download/install new applications. This happens with all applications I've tried to install isn't about specific app. I have rebooted my phone, checked my settings App Store and internet, disconnected and connected on my Apple ID. I also reset my network settings. I tried to download with a Wi - Fi connection and mobile data with applications that don't require Wi - Fi connection to intall. All several times and during the time period of a few days. I have no restrictions on.

    When I click on the "install" button, it shows just the circle of progress without the mean square and it remains stuck with no progress. Sometimes the application displays a white icon on my home screen, but not every time. If so, I can not remove it directly but I can stop the 'installation' in the App Store that makes the white icon will eventually disappear. I have an application that has survived exceeded installation stage of the white icon, but got stuck on "pending". I can click on it, but nothing happens.

    I have the software of the iPhone 6 and 9.3.1.

    I am really desperate for a response, please.

    Try going into settings > general > Restrictions > and make sure that iTunes Store, Apps install, delete the Apps and In - App purchases are all under the section allow. Try to install again.

    If the above does not work:

    Close the App Store completely from the window of the selector app by double clicking the Home button and slide up the App Store preview pane until it disappears from the display. You may be able to pick up the tab App Store covering scribbles to the left.

    Then sign out of the iTunes Store (in the settings).

    Then perform a forced reboot. Hold down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons simultaneously for about 15-20 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    Then reconnect to the iTunes Store.

    If neither works you may have a corrupt system and would have to do a restore. I restore as a new and test the phone as the backup may be corrupted. Make sure to import all your photos and important data first. If the backup is corrupted, restore it will bring back the corruption.


  • hide updates in the app store

    I've continually updated 5 harassing me on the App Store - RAW updates for cameras that I will never possess and the latest iMovie and offerings of iWork I don't want.

    Surely it must be a simple way to hide these unwanted updates and disable the constant notifications and access network on these updates groups...

    Right-click on the update in the App Store and choose 'Hide '.
