Live 9 taking 4-5minutes to start up


Jus bougth a new systhem am MBP mid 2014, i7 quad core, 16gb ram, 512ssd, Yosemete 10.10. Imported my Time machine backup, bought, live 9.1.7. I´m in contact with ableton support for 3 days now, while i try to make the systhem ready to head back to the studio. I have a big issue with live starting up it seems it hangs in "initialising program" when started up for about 4min 30sec every time, the out of a sudden it only takes 2 more secs to open completely. This is quite a long time, since i use ableton for it`s fast workflow.

Same with 64bit and 32bit live 9, as with 32bit live 8

Is anyone having the same issues?

Support doesen`t seem to have answers, so did anyone manage to fix it?

Is there a possibility that my time machine backup is corrupted, therefore slowing my systhem down?

any imput is welcome

    My system works a lot better when wifi is turned off. It also takes forever for Max for Live to start for me so if your default set ( or the set you open) has that it might slow it down. I hate slow startups for sure. Good luck.
