I'm currently using Komplete 12 with Windows 7. I'm considering upgrading to Komplete 14, but the system requirements specify Windows 10. Can I not use Komplete 14 with Windows 7?

    All the current products require Windows 10 or 11. Newer products are not officially supported on WIndows 7, which is also not supported anymore by Microsoft. So, yes, the latest products and updates are not intended for or tested on WIndows 7 and we won't offer support in case of issues. You can find older updates of current and legacy products that are compatible with WIndows 7 though: Compatibility of Native Instruments Products on Windows

    Most of the useful bits of Komplete 14 utilize Kontakt 7, which requires Win 10 (latest build) or Win 11 as a minimum OS.

    Maybe Kontakt 7 runs on Win7 and just it is not supported by NI. They just do not want to test it and so...

    But Native Access will not let you to install K7 on W7, I guess. You would have to get K7 installer and install it on Win7. After that NA starts to show it and authorises it. At least the NA1, I haven't tried NA2.

    I have installed GR6 and Super 8 (from Komplete 13) on Win7 that way, few years ago...

    To get installer (ISO file), you must start installation on Win10/11 using NA and grab the file after download and before NA will remove it. Maybe that it is possible to set the rights for download folder in a way that NA will not be able to delete installers....

    What comes to my mind, in case of K7 you also could download Kontakt 7 Player and install it on Win7 (if that is possible). After running NA it could switch to full version of Kontakt 7.
