    The only answer I found was to download the newest package of Live 8.3.1 and re-install it. It was fairly painless and it did not require me to use any of my authorization keys.

    Yeah reinstalling 8.3.1 manually worked for me. If issues like this are going to come up, think I'll leave the 'Get Software updates' function switched off for now.

    I've read on several threads that downloading rewire from propellerhead will fix the problem but it has not worked for me.  Maybe it will work for some of you...

    Well it appears downloading and simply re-installing 8.3.1 works without hacking into the system!

     

    I agree with also agree with disabling the 'Get Software updates' function in the background as this may have caused the issue.

    Hopefully no more problems//

    This very much disappoints me.. Even worse there appears to be no answer for what appears to be a common problem!

    I have the same problem on Windows XP SP3 (32 bit/x86) with the latest version of Live (8.3.1). I hadn't run Live for a couple of weeks, then when I started it up today to work on a project that rewires with Reason (4.0.1), I got this error :-(

    I may have used Rebirth (from CD) last time I was using Live, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

    Things I've tried, to debug this myself:

    1. Downloading and installing Rewire from the Props site
    2. Rebooting
    3. Renaming my VSTs folder to rule these out as the source of the problem
    4. Searching my system for 'ReWire.dll' (as per http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/printview.php?t=166661) - only 1 instance found, in the correct directory (c:\WINDOWS\system32)
    5. Comparing the version of the Rewire.dll on my system, vs the version installed via the installer from the Props website, vs the version installed by Reason 4.0.1 on launch if it is not already installed (Live does not appear to install Rewire.dll if it is missing) - all versions are the same: 1.7.0.4096 (360KB)
    6. Toggling Rewire support off and back on, via Options.txt (http://www.ableton.com/pages/faq/options_text), by adding then removing '-ReWireMasterOff'. When toggled off, the error did not appear, but obviously I need this enabled for my project. Also fiddled with the -ReWireChannels=n setting, to no avail.
    7. Toggling 'Multicore/Multiprocessor Rewire' on and back off in Live's Preferences > CPU
    8. Disabling Loopback in RME Babyface routing
    9. Turning WiFi off
    10. Emailing support with this information
