Going nuts!!...I am trying to reinstall Live 84b9 Win 64 because I think I messed it up on a previous attempt - no matter what I did, I was not able to get Live to recognize the Universal Audio powered plug-ins folder which I happily dropped in my new, 64bit VST plug-in folder. (yes, UA ver 6.4 = 64bit) (and yes I have browsed my VST folder in Live preferences and rescanned...numerous times, in fact Live is recognizing some of the other, native 64bit VST's in that very folder).
So I thought it best to try and start over. I uninstalled UA completely and Live and now during the Live install, it gets to a page where it asks to me to confirm "Install Ableton Live Beta to: (default) C:\ProgramData\Ableton\Live 8 Beta\. When I click 'Next' - as to proceed with that file destination, it gets rejected, essentially, with a window which reads: "Folder Already Exists You can Only install Live to a new folder"...The options presented are to either go back to the previous window and change the destination folder (which I think may be messing with my VST issue) or just to cancel install?!
I have been trying to find this Ableton folder but can't even find PragramData folder in Windows!!!...thinking I'd delete the Ableton folder, whatever. Anyways, I have a hunch this is playing a part in my not being able to get Live 84b9 win 64 to recognize the UA plugs. How can I gain access to this folder and delete it so I can re-install from scratch!?
