    Are the subversion numbers matching (top left corner of the splash screen)?


    At any rate, maybe a complete reinstall of Kontakt would help.

    Hello,

    maybe cakewalk does not see the kontakt.dll, first check if you can find the kontakt.dll, normally all vst.dlls are in one folder but in your case maybe not (you can check the install folder in native access settings). Then you can add this folder in cakewalk settings, that it looks also there for vsts, better you copy all in one folder and just use one folder for vst64 bit, one for vst32 bit, the one for vst3 is normally set correctly and you should not change it.

    I now see cakewalk supports vst3 so it should see kontakt, do you have the latest kontakt version and do you have this folder under "program files\common files\vst3" or like that? There are all vst3 plugins installed

    Which version number do you see when you click the KONTAKT logo in top left in standalone, vs plugin in Cakewalk?
