Push 2 crashes Live when connected (Win)

  • Live Versions: Live 9.5 and later
  • Operating System: Windows 7, 8 and 10


Push 2 crashes Live as soon it is connected and powered on while Live is running. Windows may display the error "A Serious Program Error Has Occurred". 


Certain outdated ReWire DLLs can conflict with Push 2. 


  • Disconnect Push 2
  • Close Live if it's running
  • Delete the contents of these folders:

C:/Program Files/Common Files/Propellerheads Software/ReWire
C:/Program Files(x86)/Common Files/Propellerheads Software/ReWire

  • Then launch Live, connect Push 2 and power it on

Please note that some programs will re-install the Rewire DLLs every time they are opened. If you do use those programs on a regular basis but do not need to use ReWire, then you can turn off ReWire functionality completely using these Options:


Here are instructions on how to add an Options.txt file to Live.
