"Ableton Live wants to make changes..." (Mac)

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: MacOS


You may see the prompt to enter your system login information every time you load Max for Live devices, or at launch if you have a Max for Live device in your template set. This message can occur in combination with ReWire.

To fix this:

Live 10: Reset Max for Live.

Live 9: Update to the latest version of Max for Live, which can be downloaded from your User Account. That's usually enough to fix it, but if the issue persists then reset Max for Live.

If the error still persists after resetting Max for Live then it's connected to ReWire and you would need to reset ReWire.
