Help! Ableton Loading Project Problem!

So I recently got a novation launchpad MK2 which also came with an Ableton live lite code, but after I download Ableton whenever I opened other peoples projects, it takes over 2 hours to load and then crashes, I downloaded Kaskobis Press Start Launchpad Project and when I opened it would load for 2 hours, then say the media files are missing and then close, could someone help me find a way to lower the time it takes to load and how I can open projects without the media going missing, I've tried this on 10 other projects and got the same results.

Is this a project compatible with Lite, which has only 8 tracks, is it? You'd be better off trying the Live 10 demo for 30 days. It can coexist on disk with Lite.

Well it is definitely compatible, and if it had instruments or plugins that werent able to be used in live lite it would tell me and remove them when I open the project. and it only contains 3 tracks but I'll try downloading demo version for 30 days and see what happens.

I never had Lite (only Intro), so didn't know this was an option. I find it very irritating one cannot open a Suite project in Standard and have all the Suite components removed automatically. Instead saving is disabled. I have to rely on the Suite demo running inside a virtual machine and remove anything manually.

Welp downloading Ableton live 10 demo didn't work, it crashed again when I tryed to open The Press Start Project. It worked perfectly fine without the project loaded but the project just crashed while loading, and the same thing happened when I tryed loading another big broject as well, its always the good songs or big projects I just cant open and I dont know why.

Likely they contain something that doesn't agree with your current DAW system. Maybe you're missing a plug-in, or you use dubious plug-ins with issues that you may, or may not, be aware of?

I don't know where you're getting your projects, but crashes have happened for me with my older projects from time to time. The solution can be to build a new set by using the browser to add each track from the original. If the problem occur again when adding a single track, then avoid that one. Often for me, I could add all the tracks without issues, indicating a corrupt file in the original.

This gives you all the tracks, but unfortunately you can't add the returns. Recreating these will have to be an exercise.

Try loading it with no audio interface selected, or try another audio interface if you have one. Might also help to update your drivers.
