    I believe I downloaded whoever had the first working Ableton 10 upload, I think it was dada. Worked like a charm for months. Recently, however, something's happening and it keeps asking me for authorization. I'm getting around it by restoring the whole app from Time Machine, but it's getting hella annoying.

    Anyone else having this issue? I had my Mac firewall up already and I'm putting Little Snitch on it now. I have a feeling it's doing something sneakier.

    Also curious if any plugins or additions to the user library could possibly be triggering Ableton to check itself? Is that a thing? Because I've installed a ton of shit very recently.

    a bit of a hassle initially but well worth it :like:

    Yes I am having trouble as well however I am not using a Mac. Ive never had an issue installing any software for years I always follow the instructions and even when they are difficult to understand (per bad english) i still am almost always able to figure out how everything needs to be done on the 1st try (like 80% of the time). However i cannot get mine to authorize properly. im using the 10.0.2 version from R2R and I had been using v9 but i even uninstalled that BEFORE installing v10.

    Make sure you have automatic updates disabled in Live's preferences.

    give 10.0.1 a shot

    although 10.0.2 works for some, its mostly a mess (it has to do with beta versions), even abes recommended its users to downgrade to 10.0.1 and wait for 10.0.3
