App icons in Spotlight all replaced by C file icon after installing OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion and Xcode 4.4

Spotlight - C Application Icons

Several of my colleagues and I noticed that after installing OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion and updating Xcode to 4.4, all of our application icons in Spotlight are showing up as Xcode C files.

Anyone have any idea what’s going on or how to fix it?

Update: Issue Resolved

I just installed the MacBook Pro Retina SMC Update 1.0 and it looks like it has fixed my icons issue.

  1. I’m having the same issue – however in my case the icon displayed looks like the one from a Windows .exe. Also the wrong icon is only displayed for Apple apps as far as I can tell – other 3rd party apps show correctly.
