Auto Update doesn't seem to be working - 9.7.2

Hi,

This usually works for me with no problem but I can't seem to get it to auto-update.
I do see that some people are having some issues with 9.7.2 so maybe I'm just lucky. :)

I couldn't get this to work either, so downloaded the whole thing. I haven't had any issues in macOS except the first start.

From the Ableton knowledge base:

Live 9.7.1 doesn't automatically update to Live 9.7.2 (Win)

I think auto update only worked once for me with Live 9. I download them and archive them anyway.

I'm on macOS and Live didn't update itself for me either.

This is bulls**t. The autoupdate wasn't working for me either, so I downloaded it manually from my account @ Ableton and installed it choosing "Replace" option. To my surprise the install created a new folder, almost doubling the space Live takes on my HDD, moved some files but left others, all my packs and M4L stuff disappeared. I had to delete everything and re-install from scratch, wasting 3+ hours...

Now I'm really reluctant for them to release v10 :)

since i have no reason to update, i stay with 9.7.1 and push 1

if ableTEN cannot chainload .als or give us the possiblity of an split screen dj-like LIVE.Mode
which can load 2 of those .als along byside, i won`t need this autoupdates anyway
cause i will not go for it.

- at least it should be possible to autofocus controllers between 2 instances.

i know - high demands - but thats what made the software "great again"

i need a doubleTen with 2 slots to preload/unload .als and a mixer-area that bring up those 2 tracks
in a live.situated manner together.

in this case i would consider to double my push + spent another k for the update - in other cases each cent
stay with me until i buy a duplex mirrored workstation with each an solid RME babyface and a decent hardware-mixer.
