As of Live 8.0.8, Ableton fully supports Windows 7. Please note, however, that your audio and/or MIDI hardware may not yet have Windows 7-compatible drivers.
Live 8.0.8 (and newer) has passed all our internal Windows 7 testing routines and there are currently no known problems.
All 32-bit versions of Vista are supported. 64-bit versions of Vista may work to an extent, but Ableton does not currently support these versions.
The VST folder under MacOSX is located in the following folder: Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST. You place your VST Plug-ins in this directory.
Please be sure that the plug-in is actually a VST effect plug-in. If you are using MacOSX and an Intel-Mac, please be sure that your VST is compatible with your system.
As Steinberg states, only VST 2.4 plugins are supported on Intel Mac computers. Please contact the plug-in developers for a VST 2.4 version of their plug-ins in order to use them on an Intel Mac.
There should be no differences in Live's performance between any of the 32-bit versions of Windows Vista.
There is not a special Live installer for Windows Vista. As of Live 6.0.9, the standard Windows installer will install Live on either Windows XP or Windows Vista.
Yes. All versions of Live / Live LE as of 6.0.9 are compatible with Windows Vista.
