You've clearly made some progress with the reinstall then. It's not unknown for the badge to go away without warning; perhaps after a restart. It's taken a while so do let us know how things end up.
Incidentally, I've now remembered where my extra app copy was located. I'd made an alias of the original app as I usually do with those apps that are not updates of iMac apps. That's what the App store found when it stopped me from reinstalling.

Here's something interesting. The operation was a success but the patient died. Window Tidy was updated and no longer works. It does nothing. Mt layouts are still saved, but they do not appear when Option dragging windows, even though Window Tidy is enabled.

Well now, in Window Tidy there is a direct connection to the developer and a support section. What have you done in terms of connecting with them? You haven't mentioned such contacts so far but the problems you have met should be reported in order that the developer is aware.
But I think I have gone as far as I can with this one. I wish you well.

The developer says a few customers have reported the issue, and he's asking if I want to test a beta version which will get me back on the road sooner then waiting for the update to clear the App Store. I think I will do the beta test.

I was having the same problem. Here's what worked for me: Delete the app from the applications folder and empty the trash. Open the Mac App Store and "re-purchase" the app (it won't actually charge you because you already own it). It will download and that's it! I re-launched the app, my preferences were still there and the app store says zero updates.

I'm having the same issue with iPhoto. I have the badge icon showing 1 update available, however the software update is showing the update is already installed. I like the idea of uninstalling and reinstalling the program, however I'm not sure if it's possible to reinstall iPhoto...

Yes, I did post that at the very beginning but Gary (the OP) reported it didn't work .. and I have to say I have found times when it hasn't worked for me either.

We already tried that way back at the beginning of this discussion. It didn't work.

Something came up the other day written by Dah*veed in response to yet another question on the same subject. Thought you might be interested to see it. He wrote ...
You could try reindexing your HDD. The MAS uses the Spotlight indexing in determining what apps need updating. Go to Systems Preferences / Spotlight/ Privacy; add your Hdd to the list then remove it from the list. Spotlight will then reindex your HDD.

OK, I have done that, and Spotlight is reindexing my boot drive.

Let us know how you get on. We've tried hard between us, haven't we.
