    I GOT IT!

    Like @sikopak said: "Install, run patcher, launch ableton live (not from auth file), register later, keep live open, open authorization file."

    But make sure you're OFFLINE while doing so and turn off Auto Updates before re-opening.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm on macOS High Sierra 10.13.5 & My 9.7.3 Live version was working perfectly fine yesterday, and now every time I exit out of live & reopen it, it says "this authorization file is invalid on this computer."

    I tried everything from re-patching and total reinstall, and it always tell me that the license is invalid with this computer.

    PLEASE HELP

    Why the troll comments for a simple question.. Seriously your people suck at trolling and best you can say is "did you contact support to see if your banned" how about you try the same with all cracked software... Seriously what was even the point wasting the time with such a dumb comment. I'll apologize if this was a sarcastic joke but these type of comments are becoming too common from people with no right to make them.

    Make sure the .auz file & the script are in the Apps folder when you run them. Also reset permissions on the app, the .auz and the script.

    Hi,

    I'm on macOS High Sierra 10.13.5 and I try to install 9.7.3 Live version and I get the same result every time that the file is invalid on my computer. I tried everything you said and it always says that. When you said to reset permission on the app the aux and the script, do you mean to unlock the padlock ? I'm completely at a lost, everytime I try to install Live I can't and frustrates me so much. Can it be that the High Sierra and 9.7.3 aren't compatible ?

    Please help me

    nop, theres a few ways to reset permission of which this is probably the easiest:
    https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/31741/permissions-reset
    Just drag/drop the files on there and 'reset'.
    again make sure the .auz file and the to be run terminal command (script) are in the Applications folder next to the Live app.
    Ableton 9.x.x should run in High Sierra.

    yoooo so i was just having this problem with the ableton live 10 suite from R2R where the "file not valid for this computer" thing kept popping up when i tried to authorize Ableton Live 10 Suite and I realized this was happening because i did not properly block the program from reaching out like they said to do in the note attached so how i fixed this:

    1. Uninstall Ableton and everything that came with
    2. Delete the previously attempted generated keys
    3. Install Ableton Live 10 Suite all over again and at the end of the installation MAKE SURE TO UNCHECK THE BOX THAT SAYS RUN THE PROGRAM BEFORE YOU PRESS FINISH
    4. After this open this link in your browser >>
    in this video the guy explains how to properly block the program from "reaching out" using its connection to the internet.
    5. After Ableton Live 10 Suite is blocked from the internet aka "reaching out" open up the program and it should pop up the authorization tab
    6. Click "No internet connection on this device" (or however it goes) so you can authorize it offline.
    7. Save the displayed text that includes the hardware code to a note by clicking the "save" button the note should open automatically, if not, open it manually through files explorer
    8. Run R2R's KeyGen and copy paste the hardware code from the note into the generator and click "Generate"
    9. Save the generated license to the Ableton installation folder FYI DO NOT CHANGE THE NAME OF THE LICENSE OR ELSE ABLETON WILL NOT RECOGNIZE IT

    Now comes the moment of truth and I hope you have not closed any of the tabs yet. If you did as i said it should work, if it doesnt go back and retrace your steps and see where things went wrong.

    10. After you save the license go back to Ableton Live 10 Suite program
    11. Open the files explorer and find the license you saved and drag and drop it anywhere onto the Ableton window.

    If everything worked the next tab to pop up should say that you have successfully authorized the program

    MAKE SURE YOU READ EDIT

    EDIT: the next day after opening ableton it asked me to authorize again and eventually i realized that happened because it auto updated over night so if this happens you do not have to repeat the whole process I explained if you have already done it. Simply uninstall and the re-install Ableton Live 10 Suite (make sure you are back on the 10.0.1 version though) then run the program and it should go back to how you left it authorized and all.

    Now to prevent this from happening again go into the preferences (top left>options>preferences) and click on the license page and where it says "get automatic updates" make sure the button next to it says "off" and is colored gray. If it is yellow and says "on" click it and it should turn off.

    After this you should be good to go.

    If anything is unclear or yall have questions just ask
