    There is, but your host needs to support VST3 plugin migration capability (assuming you're using VST3). Currently the only hosts which support plugin migration are: Cubase, Nuendo, Maschine, Komplete Kontrol. No others.

    You will need to keep K6 installed in case of using any other hosts, for the time being - until developers of those hosts decide to support the VST3 plugin migration capability.

    I’m using Bitwig as my DAW, it can load VST 3 versions as well.

    The problem that I saved lots of my projects with Kontakt 6. & Unfortunately I uninstalled V6. I thought Kontakt 7 can load the parameters normally. Now they all gone.

    I searched for Kontakt 6 but can’t find it. Is it still available else where? Is there any other solutions left?

    Bitwig doesn't support VST3 migration either.

    You should be able to reinstall Kontakt 6 from Native Access. It shows as "Kontakt", without a number.
