old BrowseWithPMService.service can't be deleted.
« on: July 14, 2012, 02:07:11 PM »
I have an old version (dated 10/14/2010) that I can't seem to delete.   When I move it to Trash, I get this error...
"The item “BrowseWithPMService.service” can’t be moved to the Trash because it’s open."

I rebooted, no apps open.  And still got the same error.   Then I did a force quit of finder, and finder , of course, relaunched itself, but still I could not delete the service.

I'm assuming the new version is better... its bigger, and that means better, right?? ;-)

There must be some other trick. Any clues for the clueless?

Ron,

That's odd.  It shouldn't get loaded until you right-click on something in the Finder.  How about just moving out of its current location to someplace else, like the Desktop?  Then restart your computer.

HTH,

I killed the process in "Activity Monitor" (Mac) and then deleted.  But the new service opens my old version of PM, not 5....?

Loving 5!

Thanks,

Will Austin
