Questioner General

Hi all

something strange, xcode is correctly installed, but in the lunchpad it's missing the icon and it's stuck on installing:





that doesn't go away even if I restart my macbook.

I can launch xcode anyway.

Is there a way to remove that icon stuck on installing? It' quite annoying because I always see the launchpad icon with in progress bar....
