Ableton Authorize822 Auz: How to Authorize Ableton Live 8.2.2 Offline

Ableton Live is a popular software for music production, performance, and DJing. However, in order to use it, you need to authorize it with a valid license. If you have purchased Ableton Live 8.2.2, you should have received an authorization file (.auz) that you can use to activate the software offline. In this article, we will show you how to open the .auz file and authorize Ableton Live 8.2.2 on Ubuntu, a Linux-based operating system.

Download Zip:

What is an .auz file?

An .auz file is a special file that contains the information needed to authorize Ableton Live offline. It is generated by the Ableton server when you enter your hardware code, which is a unique identifier of your computer. You can download the .auz file from your Ableton user account and save it to a portable storage device, such as a USB stick or an external hard drive.

How to open the .auz file on Ubuntu?

To open the .auz file and authorize Ableton Live 8.2.2 on Ubuntu, you need to install Wine, a software that allows you to run Windows applications on Linux. You can install Wine from the Ubuntu Software Center or by using the following command in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install wine

After installing Wine, you need to install Ableton Live 8.2.2 on your computer. You can do this by using Wine Windows Program Loader, which is a tool that lets you run Windows executable files (.exe) with Wine. To do this, right-click on the Live 8.2.2.exe file and select "Open With Wine Windows Program Loader". Follow the installation instructions and choose a location for the program files.

When Ableton Live 8.2.2 starts, you will see an authorization dialog. Click on "No Internet on this computer". Live will display another window in which the hardware code of your computer is shown, as well as further information regarding the offline authorization process:

Note down the hardware code (you will need to enter this number in your account). You can also save this information as a text file to make it easier to find later.

On an internet-connected computer, log in to your Ableton user account. Once you are logged in, select your Live license from the list and click "offline authorization". Enter your hardware code from Live and click "Download". The Ableton server will generate an authorization (.auz) file for the computer you want to authorize:

If using an offline machine, you can save the authorization file to your portable storage device and bring it back to the computer where Live is installed.

How to authorize Ableton Live 8.2.2 with the .auz file?

Open Live and double click the .auz file or drag it onto the authorization dialog. If you need to find your hardware code again, the offline authorization dialog can also be found within the Live Preferences' "License / Maintenance" tab:

Ableton Live should recognize the .auz file and authorize itself. You should receive a message confirming that Ableton Live has been authorized.


In this article, we have explained how to open the .auz file and authorize Ableton Live 8.2.2 offline on Ubuntu using Wine. This method can be useful if you cannot successfully authorize online, or if your computer is not connected to the internet, or if you are trying to authorize an older version of Live (4-9). We hope this article was helpful and informative for you.
