Totally screwed up my Ableton Live 9.5
Im still stuck after i uninstalled Canary, uninstalled Live and installed Live again
I could not even fix it with the install program (option REPAIR was not available)

I'm still stuck, i need infos on how to uninstall your licence manager. (which is probably the cause of it)

Another thing, you should change the font used on your web site and in the VST for showing serial and HD id.
I and L are alike as well as 0 and O.

Sounds like a good idea but it doesn't sound like anything at all on my system (cubase 5.53, win8). So I'm left with a kind of a deluxe channel mute plugin which truly deserves a minimum amount of 100 chars to describe its sheer beauty. Especially John Cage fans will love it since it is the perfect virtual instrument to recreate his piece 4'33''.

Ok, let's get serious again: Several weeks ago I contacted the manufacturer and described my problem. No response yet.

In the last few weeks the Black Rooster Dev team took the time to work on stabilization on our free plugin and the release candidates of the VLA-2A and our very own beta tracker. The Canary has undergone some tweaking and bugfixing and will now run more stable, especially for those who had issues on AU. You will find the current version (1.0.2) for download in your account. Thank you for your bug reports and patience on our latest release.

Thanks for your feedback.

First of all, we're working on fixing your Ableton 9.5 issue.

Concerning the font there's one thing you should know: Our Activation System never generates the numbers 0 or 1. So O alway equals the letter O and I always equals the letter I.

Hope this helps.

My DAW gives me a warning that Canary is using legacy VST code and will not install it.
