The Ableton Indexer error dialog


If the Indexer has stopped working Live can still be used, but no content will be available in the browser.

In order to restore the Indexer process, it is necessary to manually download the latest Live 9 version and re-install.

The next time Live is launched, this error dialog should no longer pop up.
