I know that previous versions of Live have had similar issues related to preferences.cfg...
I haven't been able to boot it up once, I just downloaded it today and I'm having the same problems as everyone else. I'm on a windows 7 64 bit 8 gig RAM thinkpad and downloaded the 32 bit trial version, installed it, waited for it to launch and nothing happens but I see the Live 9 Trial in my task manager process window. I did the basic uninstall, reinstall troubleshooting but nothing happened.

Everyone who's affected by the problem of the 9.0.2 Trial version freezing on launch, please re-download and re-install 9.0.1. The links are available here:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=191500

We have disabled auto-updates for Trial versions for now, so you can keep on using 9.0.1 until the problem is fixed.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks Nico! I was starting to feel bad about installing a new audio interface. :) Here's to 26 more days on trial till I scrape up the cash. Loving Live!
