    right after 10.6.2 installed,
    all the automator shortcuts in the keyboard system preference went missing.
    even creating a new service from automator also doesn't work anymore.

    I can open automator just fine, but the service or workflow I created just doesn't work anymore.

    anyone else having this problem?

    if you don't have this problem at least notify me.
    So I won't sit here wondering what's going on around

    yup, something in automator is wrong..

    I am also having problems with automator actions that worked fine in 10.5 break in 10.6. I've tried re-recording to no avail. The Watch Me Do script breaks repeatedly, there is also a post on the Apple discussion forums...

    I'm now in the same boat - I can't get any automator actions to work properly

    Also having problems!

    I had some really kick ass Automator services setup that used to work great in 10.6.1 but now in 10.6.2 they don't even show up and when I go up top to the menu and click on services it just says "Building..." in any app I'm in.:mad:

    Has anyone found out how to get this working again?

    did any of your use software like clean my mac or anything that remove language or ppc universal software ?

    I'm thinking that might be the cause.

    After much work I found the solution to the problem.

    Go to:

    Delete the following:

    After that, Services should be back and running. At least they are for me!
