"The Library path can not be set" (Win)
- Live Versions: 10
- Operating System: Win
If you receive the error message “The Library path can not be set to: … ”, it means Live doesn't have write permissions for the selected file path.
To fix this issue:
- Run Live as an administrator by going to: C:\ProgramData\Ableton\Live 10\Program\Live 10.exe
- Right-click on the Live 10.x.x.exe and select 'Run as administrator'
Generally we recommend installing the Library into the default folder: C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Ableton\Library\.
