Ableton Live 9 uploading to Soundcloud tries to download/open a file named desktop??

Hi,

When I try exporting audio from Ableton Live Standard, I check off the upload to Soundcloud option.

 

It pops up a little browser window. It shows my Soundcloud user name and says "Allow "Ableton Live" access to your SoundCloud account?

 

I click connect....and it opens a file download window or something. 

 

File Download

Do you want to save this file, or find a program online to open it?

Name: desktop (yes the file is just named desktop..no extension)

TYpe: Unknown File Type, 3 bytes

From: connect.soundcloud.com

 

Obviously I can't do anything with this file...what's going on here? How do I fix this?

    Hi all, 

    We are aware of this bug and also brought this up with Soundcloud. Currently we can only ask you to manually upload your tracks. 

    Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this, 

    daw

    Hi David, 

    We don't have a timeline for this, as it seems we can not fix this on our own. 

    As mentioned, please manually upload your tracks in the meantime. 

    Thanks, 

    daw

    I too have the same problem. Only thing with my situation is that I have tried on a few occassions to manually download and it says processing track for a day or two until I lost my patience and just delted it from soundcloud. Any solutions for my manual upload issues?

    Is there a work around other than uploading to the website directly?

    Yes, please, how long can this go on? Isn't it embarrassing to have a button in Ableton that's not working, and a year later... nothing?

    I think Ableton live and Push 2 is awesome... but this bothers my latent OCD.

    And how can such a good engineering team have something like this in their daw? Remove the f.... soundcloud button or...
