    I just told you. Delete the uncompleted downloaded App from your Launchpad. Click and hold the App until it starts wobbling and then click the X.

    Thank you my apologies it did not show the entire message before for some reason.

    I have a question, if I have a software in this case Mountain Lion already installed and the app store knows its installed cause when I went to press download it said I already have it installed, it made me sign in to my apple ID and than charged me $20 even though I had it installed, shouldn't it automatically know I am running it so therefore put it in my purchased unit? In this example I did not originally download it from app store.

    Yes it should be showing up in your purchases in the App Store. I take it you had a GM copy and now want it to show as purchased. It should be there in purchases.

    Just close your App Store and reopen and see if it shows up. Purchases usually show up straight away and if it has been charged to your account it should be there. Call Apple if it doesn't eventually show up and you have been charged on your account.

    if I download something from a DMG file and dont buy it from the app store, does that show up in my purchases too eventually cause it knows I have it installed on my machine?
