    As an FX plugin or as an instrument plugin?

    You'll need to be a bit more specific. Are you having issues loading the plugin, assigning it to track etc... ?

    You load it from the VST3 or AU menu (if on Mac) - it will be under Instruments and Effects depending on what ensemble you want to load. Once loaded pick the ensemble from the Reaktor browser.

    I have got it all working sweet , just a few teething problems , even though I own full version it was running in demo mode for some strange reason , I uninstalled and reinstalled.

    Pro Tip 1 - in most hosts you can save a loaded ensemble as a preset - including in Ableton Live - this enables you to load the ensemble (and potentially specific preset/s) directly - obviously in Live you could also drag it into a rack and add macros then save the whole thing

    Pro Tip 2

    If you have Komplete Kontrol you can do the same and have the preset directly load a specific ensemble or instrument (eg Kontakt) and save as a preset to directly load that ensemble/plugin and preset with controls all set up.

    Both of these tips are also a good idea to avoid the problem with lost patches some people complain about as you always know what presets and ensembles are used in a project if you save them as a preset first before loading them in your project - it's just good project management
