Kontakt7.exe (7.0.11) does not launch after installing by Native Access version 3.0.1 (9679536/

However kontakt7.exe (7.0.11) does launch after installing the msi manually, after starting demo 3 options are available in the pop-up. When you choose activate, Native Access starts and does some processing, but Kontakt7 stays in demo mode.

Since also the "NI Uninstall RegTool" is not yet provided with Kontakt7 i can't remove it and try to install it again to see if it is something in the registry.

Any help or procedure is welcome!

    NA installs Kontakt, product is activated, standalone "kontakt 7.exe" starts a few seconds and disappears in task manager. vst3 is launching normal.

    deleting \AppData\Local\Native Instruments\Kontakt 7 folder does not help.

    All folders are created when launching again:

    folder Db:


    kontaktdb2 56

    folder default :

    kontakt def.nki

    kontakt def.nkm







    folder logging: empty

    folder UndoBuffers:empty

    Anyone ever figure this out? This is super frustrating. I've been trying to figure it out for hours.. You'd think a company like NI could send out a program that actually installs correctly and works on its own..

    I have solved my problem by upgrading to Win 11. Bitter thing, but it was the only solution.
