HW control no longer supported in Komplete Kontrol 3?

In Reaktor there is a HW Control unit (see Reaktor manual 12.4). It is for manipulating the light guide of Komplete Kontrol keyboards. But it seems that it is nog longer supported by the current version of Komplete Kontrol or may be just the Kontrol MK3. Does anyone know more about this?

Background:

I have created an ensemble to manipulate the light guide using the HW Control unit from Reaktor. This works fine within Komplete Kontrol until now. Since I have a Komplete Kontrol S MK1, I cannot update to the latest version of Komplete Kontrol. But I hear from a user with a Kontrol MK3 that the ensemble does not work. This might be a MK3 problem, but might also be a problem of the latest version of Komplete Kontrol. Can anyone verify this, for instance with a Kontrol MK2 keyboard?

The ensemble I have created can be found in the Reaktor User library, under the name:

Key Split Colors

Thank you for any relevant info on this subject.

    I have tested it in Komplete Kontrol 3.02 with my MkII keyboard and it appears to be working, so the problem, if there is one, may be with the differences in the hardware, not the software.

    btw I have also made a couple of small changes to make it show in the dropdown menu in Komplete Kontrol so there is no need to load it from edit view, I can send it to you if you like

    I'm pleased it is working in the MK III too - that was a worry

    Just very small changes, you can do them yourself if you like

    1) there are only 2 snaps but change meta information to 'Instrument' (this small change makes it visible in KK dropdown menu)

    2) Go to the Bankname in properties and under Reaktor, name the bank 'Key Split Colors' (this will make it show in the dropdown menu with the ensemble name)

    3) People can drag the nrkt file directly onto the ensemble and it will load up the KK template configuration you made, then resave in KK and it won't keep asking for where the ensemble is every time. Each time you create a new preset save this with the Komplete Kontrol file save and it will retain the KK template mapping in each preset.

    I will check when home, I also have several ensembles that access the light guide but up to now have been using them in 2.9 but can try them with 3.02 - it would be a pain if they lose that with the new keyboards

    Thank you very much for the quick response. I got a message from the person that now it is working with his MK3 too. Not sure what went wrong, but it is a relief that this still works.

    I am very curious about the changes you made to make the edit view unnecessary, because I would think this is something of Reaktor itself and not the ensemble. So if you can sent me the changes and may be an explanation how they work, I would very much appreciate it!

    That's great! Thank you very much. Indeed I had trouble KK asking for the file each time I loaded it.
