Best way to do this is to enable the debug menu for the app store. Do this: 1) open terminal 2) run this command from terminal: defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool true 3) restart the app store. 4) go to the the app store debug menu and reveal the download folder. You can delete the whole thing from finder. 5) log out and back in to ...

I have such problems as well. Mac App Store in China is very horrible, and I failed to download it from App Store trying for a whole day. So I download from torrent sites. You can search for Yosemite with any kind of torrent search engine. Carefully read the title so that you do not download the wrong version (like the developer preview or beta version). ...

This is a dumb one, but I found that the reason I was receiving this message was that my hard drive was full. So I cleared up some space and it installed just fine. Facepalm. Truth be told, the App Store should have better messaging around this. It's not an unknown error, we totally know what it is. Be forthright, App Store, come on.

Technically that person owns those apps. You can remove the app, which removes the MAS receipt, and re download it while your signed into the app store. Then it will be associated to your apple ID and owned by you.

It's on usenet already & no doubt torrents [though I don't go there] The Release build is 14A389 the release version of Yosemite is build 14A389—the last developer seed was build 14a388, also known as GMC3. The last public beta version was build 14A388b. That makes the MAS release newer than all other released builds Up to you, of course, to decide ...

I just had this problem, poked around online, and solved it by resetting the PRAM. It's generally my second go-to solution if rebooting doesn't fix it. Here's the Mavericks PRAM reset instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/PH14222?viewlocale=en_US

I was able to solve this, but I still don't know what caused it. Iteratively: Watch for a hung sh job. Run the command in a terminal. Kill the parent of the hung job with kill -9. Return to 1 until no more hung jobs appear.

Step 1: Automator tasks Create an Automator task, and save it (take note of the task file location). You probably want a couple Automator tasks in this case (one to mute and one to unmute). Here's a very basic mute script: set volume output volume 0 And unmute: set volume output volume 100 After you've created both Automator task files, Step 2: ...

I've had this happen with other apps in the past and what works for me is to: kick off a Time Machine backup (or equivalent) delete the app using Launchpad (or deleting from from /Applications) restart The restart is probably not needed in the vast majority of cases, but it ensures that no files from the app are still open from any process still running. ...

Did you try the activity monitor thats built in to OS X? Use spot light to find/open activity monitor and click on the network button near the bottom and it will display the data sent and received since the last restart.

Yes, the same principle applies. For Apple, it is a purchased product, though in one case the price was $0. So it's not transferable from account to account. As a developer, I know one normal case that is: the app is free for one day. Then the app turns paid. If a user could transfer to another account, then it would be a problem for the dev since it may be ...

You don't need to. Apple is regarding the last GM and last public beta as the final release of Yosemite and not offering an update path. Instead, wait for 10.10.1 and the Mac App Store will include this as an update path putting you back on track.

Here is the guide to remove duplicate if you want to keep the update logs. Open Terminal. Convert the updatejournal.plist by entering this line plutil -convert xml1 then ...

The first time you start up the system and log into the OS, you'll be prompted to create an Apple ID or connect to an existing one. That will register the OS as 'purchased' and enable you to do Internet Recovery or download the OS from the App Store. If you're using a MacBook with the same OS as currently available on the new MBP you wish to buy, it may be ...
