Live will not open/ crashes

I cannot open up live. After initially clicking on the live icon from my desktop, after a few seconds before it even gets to the main session view window it just crashes and quits. I get a message saying ignore,quit or reopen, none of this works.

I have just reinstalled the new v 3 update and it is still doing it.

 

I have gone back to an older version of live,but i cannot find any of my new recent sets/projects.

 

Please can any one help with this.

    I have a similar problem: I just installed the latest v. 8.3 using lion, and Live takes forever to open 5-10 minutes + and it's driving me crazy. Does anyone have that same problem, or even better; a solution to the problem?

     

    Thanks!

    @Ross:

    Hi Ross,

    please contact Ableton support regarding that issue. Please send us Status or Crash Report for investigation.

     

    @Troels:

    the problem you're describing sounds like an issue caused by incompatible MIDI drivers. Please check out my last post in this forum thread: https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=174906

     

    Cheers,
