After i download the latest version that says it works with the latest version of lion it opens to the small little picture of ableton te phase right before it actually opens and just says 'initializing the application' with a beach ball aswell and then just sits their and does nothing...

Was it a download version? If so, try the following:

(1) Delete the ableton app by moving it to trash - Repair your mac permissions
(2) Reinitialize the installer, follow the instructions
(3) Close the installer window and eject the installer icon
(4) Find the app and drag it to your dock and try to start it up from there (this probably has no bearing, I just do it this way)

See if that helps.

What OS version are you on and which version of ableton is it?

I forgot how the ableton installer works. Is there an applications folder in the install window that you drag to or does it just ask you to do that manually?

It sounds like you're initializing an app that isn't there anymore or is not in the right place perhaps.

Ableton resides in HD-> Applications -> Live 8.2.2 for me
