Kontakt 7 crashing

Having serious issues with Kontakt 7 when attempting to load an instrument whether in standalone or through Logic Pro X. I’ve seen multiple suggestions like giving full access to disks, deleting XML file (if I remember correctly) or deleting the native instruments folder in library. I was having issues with the activation as well but that seems to have solved itself. Kontakt is v7.8.1 and I’ve also redownloaded native access multiple times through stress.

    If you look around on the community pages there are a number of threads highlighting the K7 problem. Sadly you are not alone.

    I have a problem with K7. I recently ‘upgraded’ my studio and I’m using a S88mk3, M3 Mac with Sonoma 14.5, Logic Pro 10.8.1 and Kontakt 7 (10.4). Having spent many hours setting up Komplete Kontrol, which now seems stable, but the only time I can use K7 is with a single plugin from an external SSD. If I load multiple libraries there are patches missing and it crashes Logic when changing between instruments. This has stopped me using it and buying any new plugins which use Kontakt as is too unstable atm..

    From my reading and as far as I can tell, the issue appears to be a disconnect between NI and Apple systems - yet to be resolved. So I, along with others, wait for an update.
