[Solved] Unable to find the “Midi Remote Script Folder location” folder

I just installed Ableton Live and Control Surface Studio on a reformatted 2019 MacBook Pro with Intel processor. I imported the scripts and controllers I had previously configured, but when I try to install them I get the following error:

system
Unable to find the “Midi Remote Script Folder location” folder. Check your settings.

I scoured the community but did not see an answer for this. Does anyone have the solution?

Hi, in Ableton Live preferences “Library” you can change the library location. I changed that to a folder in /users/xy/… In this “user library” there’s also a folder called “Remote Scripts” (maybe I created this folder myself, not sure…). You can install the css scripts in this folder and you should be able to load css remote scripts from there. No hassle with Live application updates etc.

I solved the problem. Go to System Settings > Privacy & Security, and click on App Management. You should see Control Surface Studio under, “Allow the applications below to update or delete other applications.” Toggle the switch to the on position.

A quick update:
I can take the python files from the Midi Remote Scripts folder on my old MacBook Pro, drop them into the same folder on the new computer, and successfully use them as a control surface in Ableton Live. But, when I try to install the scripts from Control Surface Studio, I get more errors than before. Please see attached.
