CNET TechTracker reports multiple versions of applications

by plhanz / April 5, 2011 9:26 AM PDT

CNET TechTracker reports multiple versions of several applications on my iMac, but I can only locate one of each of them in the applications folder; how do I determine the location (path) of the applications it is reporting? I have done spotlight searches and checked startup folders without discovering any duplicates or multiple versions. Is there any way to list the path in the TechTracker reports? This is very annoying since it reports these for many of the apple applications like Logic and GarageBand that are covered by the automatic update processes.
