Installation of Live pack fails (file.xxx could not be renamed)

  • Live Versions: 5 - 8
  • Operating System: WIN

Symptom

The installation of one or several Live Packs fails with the message “The folder or file path/file.xxx could not be renamed to path/file.xxx”

Reason

The name of the installation path is too long. On some systems (e.g. Windows XP) the installation path is limited to 255 characters.

Solution

Change the Library location to a top-level folder of the hard drive in Live's Preferences → Library tab → “Change Location”
