Are you using the 64bit version of Live now?

Yes. The old version crashed too ... That's what made me update.

I've also done a repair disc permissions ....

Make sure all of your 3rd party plug ins are compatible with High Sierra, that's usually the other culprit that causes this.

Isn't there a way to launch Ableton without loading the plugins? And how can I find the defective one(s)? Thanks!!!

I had trouble like this before as my template had a VST plug that didn't play well with some update or another . . .

hopefully, this will work for you : https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/artic ... reset-Live

The thug that’s odd is that my laptop has VERY ew plugins. My desktop has many more, and all the ones the laptop does.

You may need to do a full reset and re-installation of Live and all plug-ins. I've done it three times the last 5 years.

It's most likely because you've got an old version of Reason installed and its rewire connection is causing Live to crash. Either uninstall Reason or update it to a version that is compatible with High Sierra:

I had the same issue and updating reason did fix the issue

If it's a VST then on next load Live should say that it couldn't load a certain VST and will ask to try again or blacklist it.

Thanks Jestermgee!

I think I found the bad boy .

The good thing with trouble shooting is, you learn a lot about your favorite DAW !

So, if 9.7.5 runs stable on 10.13.3, I will update to 10.
