Rebuild Launch Services database in OS X 10.7.

Overview

Network Home Folder Launch Services Fix, a simple Automator program, essentially rebuilds the Launch Services database, forcing OS X 10.7 to use the user-defined preferences.There appears to be a bug in OS X 10.7 when using network home folders hosted on a Mac Server via AFP that causes it to ignore user-set launch services, such as the users preferred browser and email applications, as well as filetype associations such as Always Open PDFs With Adobe Reader instead of Preview, etc.

When the user restarts their Mac and logs back in to their network home directory, these preferences are ignored and the default launch services are used instead, meaning that Safari and Mail are used as the default browser and email applications, and double clicking PDFs opens in Preview instead of Adobe Reader.
