I just bought a new computer and wish to sell my old one. How do I remove the Live authorization from my old computer?
- Live Versions: ALL
- Operating System: ALL
In general, it is recommended that you format your drive and re-install the system software before you sell your computer.
To uninstall Live on the PC, use the standard uninstall procedure for Windows. On a Mac, delete Live from your application folder.
You will also need to delete the Unlock.cfg file. The Unlock.cfg file is located in the following paths:
C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Ableton\Live x\Unlock\
Windows Vista and Windows 7:
Mac OS X:
Macintosh HD:/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Ableton/Unlock/
Please refer to the following knowledge base article for further informations how to access hidden folders on Windows and Mac OS X.
