"There is another copy of Time Out"

When I try to preview a break, I get this message: "There is another copy of Time Out. This will interfere with starting breaks. Please remove the other copy of the app." I've searched using Spotlight, and can't locate another copy of the app. I've removed and reinstalled the app, and I've restarted the computer. No luck. Help!

Re: "There is another copy of Time Out"

If you click the Reveal button in that alert, does it show the copy of the app that you expect?

Is the app in your Applications folder? You might have one in Downloads too?

If you're comfortable with the Console, you could look for the message there; it will indicate the path to both apps.

If all else fails, you can turn off this alert in the Advanced preferences.
