    I was trying to edit the plist in the App Store so it wouldn't show a badge alert. It was a success, but I didn't know I needed the copy, so I deleted it the original. Now, it won't work at all. This is what it says when I try to open the App Store.

    It's not in the trash. Restarting my mac does nothing. Why is it now that if you delete a .plist it just stays deleted? I thought it would bring back a fresh one like it always used to.

    You copied the plist, edited the copy and deleted the original.

    Can you undo your edits to get the plist back to what it was?

    I didn't just recently do it. It was a while ago, and since I don't use the App Store frequently I forgot, but now I need to update and I just remembered it doesn't work.

    If you still have one of the Yosemite upgrade dmg files, you can use something like Pacifist to open it up and extract the App store app individually. Within the Yosemite installer app, this is under Contents > SharedSupport > InstallESD.dmg. The App Store app is under OSInstall.mpkg > EssentialSystemSoftware > EssentialSystemSoftwareGroup > Essentials.pkg if you browse the dmg file in Pacifist.

    If you don't have this, you're S.O.L. Maybe if you actually said what plist you mistakenly edited, somebody could just post it here if they are still running DP3. Frankly, I have no idea why you posted the crash logs, as if we're going to somehow interpret it...

    Firstly, the crash report means nothing to nearly everybody.

    I don't know what your setup is but have you looked through Time Machine?
    Also, are you running the current plist as a copy? Is it called "copy" because it's in the same location as the original?

    Why anybody is messing around with this stuff without covering their tracks in a DP is beyond me. It astonishes me how many non developers apparently run an unfinished OS on their main computer. There's a laughable amount of "Please Help" pleas on these forums.

    Do yourself a favour - don't mess around with stuff you know nothing about. It always ends badly.

    Restore, back up, wait for the public release.

    What does this have to do with a pre-release software? If I was running Mavericks the same thing would've happened. I'm not complaining that the app doesn't work BECAUSE of the software... it's something I DID regardless. The software has nothing to do with it.

    ----------

    I don't know. I just posted it because I wanted to give as much info as I could...

    What exactly did you delete?

    I'd just delete your modified plist and it should create a new one.

    > implying there is only 1 plist that effects the App Store...

    The OP still hasn't said what plist file he modified. I they're too proud to admit that they either don't remember or don't understand the question, meaning they should have likely not been modifying a plist file in the first place. We can't help.

    You do realize that a "plist" is a type of file commonly used within Mac OS to store arrays of data for programs (usually related to settings), and it's a generic term, right? Most apps have upwards of 10-20 or more plist files within not only the app itself, but their Application Support folders and within the System/Preferences folder. Basically you could not have been more vague in your request for help… You may as just as well have said, "Help, I changed an arbitrary file in my OS and it's broken now."

    If you had Time Machine backups, you would not have this issue, so now you're going to have to reinstall the OS. Lesson learned (hopefully.)
