Kontakt 6 VST3 malfunctions but the VST version works fine?

With Kontakt 6 you can install both VST and VST3 version.

I installed both, but in my DAW (REAPER) and also as standalone the VST3 version malfunctions despite identical settings with the VST version. All the notes I play get stuck and sustain infinitely. It can't be used at all. VST version works fine.

Is this a known glitch with Kontakt 6?

    it's not a known bug to my knowledge. Can you give a bit more details, your os and your computer. Also check the versiions, with going to help and about.

    @Peter K It seems some Reaper users fixed the issue here: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=236845

    Thanks, but I have seen that thread already given I have been active on the REAPER forum for many years. The problem they are referring to is RANDOM hanging notes. The problem I am having with the VST3 version of Kontakt 6 is ALL notes played are sustaining, as if I have a sustain pedal stuck on (which is not the case).
