Kontakt 7 not loaded ?


In Windows pro 11 and Synfire the loading of the Kontakt 7 Vst does not succeed. 
The plugin is not recognized ?

Is installed in Program Files/ Common Files/VST3

Kontakt 7 is also be good working in Vienna ensemble pro server, but Synfire don't like Kontakt 7 as it seems

I go back to Kontakt 6 for now and maybe to find a downgrade for Kontakt 7 to find ?

In any case (.dll and vst3)  Kontakt 6 does open in Synfire, but is useless , because the libraries need Kontakt 7.

Probably the latest update of Kontakt 7 , is the culprit that it does not work in Synfire ?

Kontakt 7 works fine with Synfire. Can the scanner find it? Did you add Common Files\VST3 to the search path?

Yes, I set that path too C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3  and Kontakt 7 VST3 plugin File is in it

Native Access installs plugins in different directories. Synfire uses 64 bit plugins only. It can't open 32 bit plugins.

Thanks, yes, I know that Synfire now only supports 64 bit plug ins these days.
I assumed that the Kontakt version would be a 64 bit version via native access as .vst3 
Just another look on native access where to find a 64 bit version for kontakt 7 then ?

Can confirm that the latest Kontakt 7 VST3 does not load on Windows. It is only a few days old. Native Instruments will probably release another update soon. Other NI VST3 load fine.

Leave Kontakt and goto UVI. Much better, easier and more stable. Too many complications with Kontakt. UVI works beautifully with Synfire.

Thanks for the tip, but not sure yet what UVI can offer , but I bought Kontakt not so long ago, so yes 
Am not a professional composer, so it is not a big problem for me.
Also because I use Vienna ensemble pro server and in it Kontakt 7 does work well it seems.

Is there any word yet on when Kontakt 7 for windows 11 pro will work in Synfire ?

As a tip following, I am going to download that UVI workstation as well and this can replace Kontakt 7 for now then ?
