Seems that it is a Problem with the AMD Archietcture. All who posted crashes (including me) are using an AMD Chip as far as specs are included in the Posts.
As far as i can follow the crash it seems that M4L trys to take control of the Audiodriver and in that process kills the .dll of the driver. If it´s an ASIO driver Live isn´t responing anymore, if MME ist set as Audiodriver Live i the only ome with this behavoir or can anybody confirm?

Based on my exchanges with Ableton support, it was suggested that my issue has to do with the AMD HydraVision Desktop Manager (which is part of my videocard driver/utilities :? )...

This evening I uninstalled the suggested conflicting software, but it did not make any difference...

:x I'm not too excited at the possibility of having to buying a new one videocard, as the selection of fanless 3 monitor cards is rather slim.

If this helps anyone.

Videocard (which I failed to list earlier) is an AMD Radeon HD6670, with Catalyst Control Center ver 13.1

Got some feedback from support. They confirmed it is an issue with OSX 10.5.8 and that their Max for Live dev team is working on it. No date set though. Can't speak for any Windows users with AMD procs. I recommend opening a support case though and suggesting that it is not just OSX that has the issue. They had recommended updating QuickTime as well but Apple Software Updates already had it up to date (at least as far as 10.5.8 would allow which may be part of it) and it still had issues.

Yep, crashing every time when I'm closing the project in which I have it running.
My system is Windows 7, Intel i7 2. something GHz.

Sounds great but ... crashesh Ableton without exception.
