Reinstalling the Push 2 Display Driver

If Push 2 does not initialize, please reinstall the driver by doing the following:

  • From the View menu, select Show hidden devices.
  • Under Universal Serial Bus devices you will see any older iterations of the Push 2 Display drivers.


  • Right-click each instance of Push 2 Display Driver and select uninstall.

  • Allow the Drivers to install once again, by launching Live.

Manual Installation of Push 2 Display Driver

Under certain circumstances, the Push 2 Display driver cannot be installed automatically by Live. In this case, it is still possible to do that manually.

To do so, run the installer by double clicking the Push2-display-driver-installer executable from the Ableton Live Program Folder, which is located under:

C:\ProgramData\Ableton\Live 11 Suite\Redist

Please note that the ProgramData folder is hidden by default on Windows, thus it is necessary to enable the OS to display hidden files and folder.

On some systems, it might be necessary to run this process as Administrator. This option is available via the context menu by right clicking on the driver installer.
