Unlocking Live

Post by lis102trants » Tue Oct 31, 2006 11:01 pm

Hey all,
so I finally purchased Ableton Live!! I don't have to use the demo version anymore!
Ok so I have a pretty dumb question-
I purchased Live 5 today, yes today Oct. 31 2006, over the phone, and was given a registration # for Live 5. It seems I've ran into the same problems as other people trying to upgrade to live 6 for free, but thats the next part of the question. My first question is how do you "unlock" Live 5? Just for validating reasons, so I can show Ableton I actually "unlocked" 5 in time for the upgrade for Live 6. Right now I'm running the Live 6 Demo on my Macbook Pro, and I put my registration number for Live 5 on my User account, but haven't used it in any Live demos.
I can't use my Live 5 Reg. number in the demo version of Live 6 can I? Since I can't find any downloads for the Live 5 demo version anymore..

Anyways, is my Live 5 considered "unlocked" if all I did was register it with Ableton.com?

Go to the Ableton home page, click Downloads, first row down click Latest Versions, and download v5.2.2 there.

Be quick. :) Good luck.

As long as you've gotten this far, you should be good, even if you don't get it tonight. You've registered before October ended. You're in.
