    Default MF Utility and Ableton 10

    Hi folks. With Ableton Live 10.0.2 open, MF Utility produces a 'NO MIDIFIGHTER DETECTED' message in nice pale blue sans serif letters with 'Device is locked by another application. Please close that application to continue.' underneath. Surely it must be possible to have both apps open at once yeah? I'm on a PC running Windows 10.

    Cheers

    That is thing with Windows. The MIDI port can not be shared between two or more apps (unlike the OS X)
