I dont run any NI hardware. On the thread below it is suggested these can be disabled if you dont run any NI Hardware.

Can someone from NI confirm I can safely uncheck these in Login items in MacOS?

Thankyou.

    @Jojo123 You can't really uninstall them as they are part of the installation for Komplete Kontrol or Maschine but you should be able to de-activate them without issues.

    You don't need NI admin to confirm it. It is not just obvious (and safe), but mandatory (as with any useless program)!

    In my case since i own the Maschine, i kept only the NIHardware (because Maschine needs it) and completely uninstall the NIHostIntegrationAgent (because it is used mostly for the Komplete, which i don't use).

    In your case, since you don't have any NI hardware, you should remove them both, or at least disable them because they use precious computer resources. They are there, every day that you open your computer and they run in the background continuously, which is completely stupid (NI developers must add an option to remove or disable them)!

    @Sunborn thankyou for your response. Yes Ive noticed they're using resources in Activity Monitor and this indeed should be an option to uninstall these for those who don't need them. Better still why install them in the first place unless you need them.

    I'll disable them but, NI can you please tell me how to uninstall these?
