Kontakt crashes always(solved mysteriously)

Recommended Posts

 Hi great forum people. When I add kontakt in bandlab it always crashes. Luckily i made guitar templates when kontakt did not crash. Using templates I can use the guitar vst but cannot open kontakt or it will crash.  First it freezes and then gives a kernel crash text. i think i have to uninstall vocalise. I can use kontakt without bandlab

Try re-scanning your VST's. It may be that you've updated Kontakt and CbB hasn't re-scanned since?

Thanks for the tip msmcleod. I tried scanning with different settings and reinstalled but no improvement. Luckily i can still use the kontakt guitar with the template 'trick'

I use Kontakt a lot in Cakewalk, I've not had any problems with it at all. I am on windows 7 sp2 and convenience update (not updated) and Komplete Ultimate 10 (not updated) with other Kontakt instruments as well. I also do not have any problems using the non-Kontakt instruments with Cakewalk like Massive, FM8, Battery, Guitar Rig etc.

Thanks for commenting. I also used kontakt without worries until I installed vocalise 2. I guess  I need to uninstall it

I don't have that one but it is a Kontakt instrument so I wonder what is the difference between that one and the others? maybe installation paths for samples are not right or something? You might try contacting Heavyocity to see if they have any explanation.

The only solution I found was to disconnect from the Internet and disable my AntiVirus/Firewall. Then Kontakt loads fine.

Hi, I'm trying to help my bro. install his NI vst's  like; Kontakt and kompletcontrol ect.. into Cakewalk bnb. what folder or file do I point the scanner to for those?

I suppose it needs one with a dll. I can't seem to locate the right source, does anyone know for sure or have a good idea, much appreciated

This is where NI has put all its VST DLL's on my machine:

C:\Program Files\Native Instruments\VSTPlugins 64 bit\
C:\Program Files\Native Instruments\VSTPlugins 32 bit\

... so just add those two paths.

Thanks for the reply, but under c:\ Program Files\Native instrument\        then  theres no vst pllugins folder,        just seperate folders for kontakt5, battery4, absynth 5, kompletecontrol ect.  and they don't contain a dll.file.   just documentation and licensing files,   care to try again ? please

Well I dove through the  files a bit more and they contain an application file for each you can see in windows 10 file explorer.  He bought the Komplete

control 10 pk. and I don't know how the midi controller effects the other vst.s as far as interfering with access to the individual inst.s 

again, I can only find or see application files in windows file explorer.  no dll.s
