How to reset Rewire

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

In order to resolve certain rewire errors, you might need to delete the existing Ableton Live Rewire engine. 

1. Close Live

2. Navigate to the following locations and delete the files called "Ableton Live Engine 32" and "Ableton Live Engine 64" (if present):


  • Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Propellerhead Software/ReWire/
  • Macintosh HD/Users/[yourusername]Library/Application Support/Propellerhead Software/ReWire

Note: The Library in the Users folder is hidden on Mac. Here's how to access it.


  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Propellerhead Software\Rewire

3. Launch Live. Live will automatically re-download the latest version of the rewire engine.
