My beef with the focus on MHolloways multiple versions that it takes away from the half dozen plus others that have chimed in stating they have the same issues. And honestly, it just seems like another cop-out to not acknowledge the pink elephant.H20nly wrote:The Devs who's systems you're so intimate with may have final versions installed (on one drive or another), but M. Holloway has multiple beta and alpha versions installed on his, hence the comment that I directed at him. I would tell you that this is different, but you're such an expert on other people's systems and code, I'm surprised you haven't resolved this for Ableton yet all on your own... so don't let me distract your rant with my rationale and empathy for the OP.phaded wrote:Have you any idea how many different versions of Live that a dev for any DSP, be it Max or 3rd party, must have on their system?H20nly wrote:^ I'm pretty sure Ableton themselves have said that.
The only problem in OSX-land is that you have to rename the install so they don't get overwritten. In Windows (at least last I used it- its been a few years) it just installs to a different directory. I've kept legacy installs in the past while making sure an upgrade is stable. And furthermore- never been a problem prior to Live 9, why would this be the root of problems that have been reported non-stop since Live 9 was released?

tldr version;I'm sure the plugin Devs wrote their code to deal with application files in renamed folders, right?Can I install the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Live at the same time?
It is possible and there are no technical issues to be expected by having different Live versions installed at the same time, but to keep things simple, we don't recommend such a setup. Please note that you will need to manually rename the application after the first installation (Mac) or choose a different installation folder (PC).
Your sarcasm is cute, but point to some actual substance to the claim that the different versions could be fault. Something other than the loose "suggestion" that you linked to. Tell me why or show me a thread where that was the root of the problem. Otherwise its just pulling flowers out of your ass tbh. Its a guess, and it glosses over many other salient points in this thread.
