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

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: MacOS


A prompt to enter your system login information may appear every time when loading Max for Live devices, or at launch if you have a Max for Live device in your template set. Otherwise this can occur in combination with ReWire.


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.

Still getting the error message?

If the error still persists then it's connected to ReWire rather than Max for Live. You need to reset ReWire.
