Hello, im new to this site, and this problem is the reasson why i signed up.
Recently, ive been trying to install ableton live 9 (an app for creating music, beats, etc)
I always end up on this error:
''Could not create key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentverison\installer\Inprogress.
Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.''

I dont have a good knowledge of registry keys and things like that, but i still tried to find the key trough REGEDIT.exe . i cant find this key in general, so i cant change the permissions as other people suggested on google. below i will add screenshots
sorry if this text doesnt make sense at some points, english is not my native language :)

Did you down load the correct version 32 or 64 bit for Windows?

Are you using an Admin account? Try running the installer as administrator (right click \ run as... )
first of all, its a windows installer package, not a .exe file, so when you right click it doesnt give a option to run it as an admin. But as soon as you run it, it asks permission anyways

And are you using an Admin account?

Based on the error above, it doesn't sound like the key can be generated, which sounds like a privlege issue. Or as noted above, a requirements issue. Per the link provided above, the Suite requires a lot of HDD space:

  • Live 9 Suite: 55 GB free disk space

I have more than enough space, and i believe i that my account is an admin (it says in control panel that user is admin)

While it's an admin account, and it should work, that's not always the case. The "run as admin" option noted above is present in Admin accounts and I've had to use it several times for various reasons to get a program to run properly. I understand that you don't have that option for a Windows Installer Package, I'm just stating my experience with other files. It likely has to do with UAC.

yes, probably, because when i used to run virtual machines they wouldnt work if i would not run them as admin, as soon as i did, they worked perfectly. But do you have any suggestions how to fix this?

where did you download the ableton live 9 suite from?
That costs £ /$ /€ 600 and is frequently pirated and ableton recently installed protection against pirating
Have you got an ableton account. You cannot even install the free trial without an ableton account and the account is checked while installing the program

To be honest, this was a pirated version i was trying to download, BUT i had a legal lite version, with an ableton account and everything (because i bought an ableton product: ableton lauch pad s ) but since it was lite version, i couldnt save projects, etc, so i uninstalled and tried to torrent the full version from piratebay
