Live crashing when I open or save

I know, I know. I have also logged a call with support, but the last time it took 'em a day or so to respond, and I am up against it here (have deadline for a friend to keep)

Basically every time I select 'open a live set' or 'save a live set' live crashes.

Every time I try and save a vst preset. live crashes.

This is unique to Live 9, and Live 8 appears to be working fine.

Can anyone just give me a quick heads up on a couple of ideas to try ?

I've repaired disk permissions, restarted numerous times.

It's a 2012 MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion (shit OS) 10.8.3. To keep things simple I'm just using the built-in soundcard.

 

Was working fine yesterday. No changes to the system of note.

What should I do ? anyone got any ideas ?

    Had similar problems for weeks now. Ableton helpdesk has no idea why it happens.so far, no solution. Can't use Live 9. I have to admit they are doing their best to help out, but so far, even the 9.0.3 version keeps crashing/stalling.....

    Still not fixed here.... Sent another report to Ableton support, but haven't been able to use Live 9 for more than 6 months now. Very very frustrating. On my Macbook it runs fine though.
