I downloaded MacHacha because I needed it to join some segments for Toast . So, I open ImageReady and use it but I look in the dock and notice a funky icon and not the right one but again, it still works but I don't trust it. I close IR and re-open it but MacHacha opens instead. I go to my Adobe Photoshop folder which contains IR with the right icon but it still opens MacHacha. So, I click get info in finder and it says that IR is a MacHacha file. WTH? I don't even know how but after I copied IR to my applications but not in my PS folder and I right-clicked get info and it says Kind: Adobe IR but it's the wrong icon. I can use IR but it's all messed up. I opened it from the PS folder and got info and it says it was modified on the 10th which I don't understand. I've used it since then and right until last night, it was working fine with the right icon etc. I also can't jump from IR to PS but the reverse works. I even tried adding IR to the dock from Apps (not PS) and the right icon appeared. However, when I clicked on it, it didn't worked and the wrong icon is shown right next to it. Here are some captures, don't click C&P. Now, it's happening with PS 7 which is recognized as a MacHacha file.

http://images6.theimagehosting.com/Picture 6.467.png (what I see when I launch IR from Apps but not PS folder)

http://images6.theimagehosting.com/Picture 7.92a.png (dock when I open IR from Apps not PS folder)

How do I change the kind of file it is from the PS folder. Why did it happen in the first place? Why would downloading MacHacha affect IR? How do I prevent this in the future? :confused: Any help would be much appreciated.

Did you download Image Ready off the Internet? If so, then you cannot ask for help with your problem here.

really hope someone knows

kind of the same thing happened to me, but after trashing all known machacha files, all photoshop files open in script editor?

That happened as well but after. I managed to get PS to open properly with the right icon but not Imageready although I can open it. The IR icon remains a Machacha one.

Yeeeeeeaaaaaaa!!!

Hey Kat, got mine fixed, stupid machacha, delete the file

StartupParameters.plist

from your hard drive

and then add .app to the end of the Photoshp application icon, and the IR icon.
