Issue with Kontakt in Komplete Kontrol

Hi there

Every time I load an old project with komplete kontrol instances in which there are non NKS libraries it loads them in Kontakt 7. I don’t have the full version of Kontakt 7 (I have the 6) but KK automatically load the libraries in Kontakt player 7 so it starts in demo. I uninstalled Kontakt player 7 but nothing changed. In Cubase I can still see the Kontakt 7 plug-in available in the insert list.

I’m on windows 11. Is there anything else I should consider to completely uninstall Kontakt 7? Or is there a way to tell KK to open the libraries by default with Kontakt 6?

    Hi @gcorcella once Kontakt 7 (Player or full version) is installed, Kontakt 7 will always be loaded automatically.

    We're aware that this is not the best behavior and are looking into this atm. 😕 Please make sure to not migrate and save the project yet. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Thank you for your reply. Yeah, I completely uninstalled Kontakt 7 Player so now KK loads the old projects with Kontakt 6 full. I don't understand though why if I load a track archive with KK and Synchron Player in it Synchron Player is not loaded but the KK instance is empty

    I got the same problem. Since i install Kontakt 7 (Player), i cannot open kontakt 6 i, komplete kontrol.

    i just have a limited list of instruments with kontakt 7 player.

    Hope you find quick an issue.

    Any fix for the Kontact issue in Komplete Kontrol yet? If not, maybe you should update for free to Kontakt 7 Full Version for those that were using Kontakt 6 Full!

    I just purchased Komplete 14 upgrade, got full version of K7 and other instruments.

    KK is Kontakt 7 bias and will not load K6 if K7 is installed so, I had no choice but to buy K7 full version.

    added benefit is the scalable UI.

    Was this ever fixed? Had to install Kontakt Player 7 to use Kontakt Factory Library 2 (that I bought for $150), and now I’m stuck with all my K13 UCE libraries loading up in player when using my KK S61. Surely the KK software should be smart enough to know “if this person has full and the library loads in full, load full, else load player”…
