Rolling back from vst3 to vst2

My computer or maybe my DAW Reason12, don't handle my vst3's very well.

I therefor need to get rid of my vst3 and go back to use vst2.

Is there a way for me to do this so that I can use all of my NI stuff as vst2?

    What exactly is wrong with Reason or your computer that makes you think VST3 is not an option?

    VST2 support is disappearing fast so your options may be limited - and eventually non-existant. Not only with NI plugins but everyone.

    If your DAW is holding you back might be time to think about something that does work.

    In Reason, both VST2 and VST3 format of our plugins are available from the Create menu and on the Instruments device palette in the Browser. You can select which one to use.

    But note that Kontakt 7 doesn't have a VST2. It's only available as a VST3.
