Could not load plugin...Komplete Kontrol VST running Reason 12 Help...

I can't get any of my devices to load in Komplete Kontrol all I'm getting is could not load plugin. I've tried everything on the native instrument website https://support.native-instruments.com/hc/en-us/articles/210276145-KOMPLETE-KONTROL-Error-Could-not-load-Plug-in-Mac-. I've even went back down from Komplete Kontrol 2.8 to 2.7.2 and it' still not working. I've erased the app and every folder that said komplete kontrol listed, reinstalled everything fresh and it's the same problem. The sounds will audition they just want load up to play which is strange because Kontakt player 6 works without a problem.

macOS Catalina version 10.15.7 Macbook Pro 15 inch Mid 2012 2.3Ghz Quad Core Intel Core i7 16Gb DDR3 512 SSD Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536mb 8TB OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual 7200rpm External Drive

    @Jae Marrs There seems to be a misunderstanding.

    If you open Komplete Kontrol in standalone, is everything working? Can you load all plug-ins & libraries?

    Have you given Full Disk Access to Komplete Kontrol and Reason? How to Enable Full Disk Access on macOS

    No Komplete Kontrol isn't working in standalone only some of the libraries work like Output but none of the Kontakt libraries are working I continue to get "could not load plugin". Yes I have given native instruments full disk access to komplete kontrol and reason...

    Reason 12 only exists as a VST3 so it won't load in Komplete Kontrol 2.7.2 anyway so reverting would be pointless. Only 2.8 supports VST3 at all and on my Mac Studio I have Reason plugin loading in KK 2.8 (for me I need to run under Rosetta but you are on Intel so that's not the issue).

    If Kontakt isn't loading it may be the version needs updating - Kontakt 7 is only in VST3 (and AU) on Mac so again will not load in an earlier version of Komplete Kontrol. Kontakt 6 on the other hand is VST2.

    Reason 12 doesn't have VST3 capabilities yet it's still in Beta so VST2 is still supported and working. Funny thing I'm running Komplete Kontrol 2.7.2 but in native access it says KK 2.8 installed which is weird...Kontakt 6 is working fine but a few of my VST2 libraries aren't showing up but they show up in KK 2.7.2 again weird.

    Ah you are trying to run KK in Reason? I thought you meant run the Reason plugin in KK.

    No I'm using it inside the Reason DAW...I tried it out in the Reason Beta version with VST3 capabilities and I'm getting the same results "could not load plugin" and I even upgraded KK to 2.8 it's still not working correctly.

    If you open Kontakt in standalone, are all your libraries loading? If that is the case, and all your NI plug-ins are properly installed you should try to reset Komplete Kontrols database:

    Reinitialize the KOMPLETE KONTROL Database

    1. Go to the following location on your computer:
    2. Macintosh HD > Users > *Your User Name* > Library > Application Support > Native Instruments
    3. Note: The User Library folder is hidden. See this article for instructions to access hidden macOS folders.
    4. Search through the Native Instruments folder at this location to find the KOMPLETE KONTROL folder.
    5. Delete only the KOMPLETE KONTROL folder found here.
    6. Note: Deleting other NI product folders could result in unexpected behavior with other applications.
    7. Reboot your computer and reopen the KOMPLETE KONTROL software to check that the issue has been resolved.

    Yep I've done that several times I even deleted every Komplete Kontrol folder and the com.nativeKompleteKontrol & the favorites db3 file & the com.native-instrumentskompletekontrol.plist. I've gone down to komplete kontrol 2.7.2 from 2.8 and still "could not load plugin. I've checked the installation path uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I can't load up old songs that are save with komplete kontrol instruments. I even beta tested Reason 12 with VST3 capabilities and still got the same results "could not load plugin". The sounds will audition but they will not load up but strangely enough Kontakt 6 works fine but I can't seem to load up all the instruments like in Komplete Kontrol. And when I use Kontakt 7 in the beta version of Reason they worked fine but all the instruments didn't show up like in komplete kontrol. This is driving me nuts seriously...

    Ok, I've tried to contact you again, did you get my email? Did you receive any email at all from us? Have you checked your spam folder?

    Yes about using some tools...Could be it that I have all my instruments on an external hard drive and it's just not seeing them but kontakt 6 player is working fine...

    I recently relocated all of my large file native instruments onto my external hard drive. It seems that KK 2.7.2 will recognize the instrument and audition the presets but will not load them up(could not load plugin). Kontakt player 6 is working fine but I can't audition the sounds or presets because those capabilities don't exist in Kontakt player 6. I'm using Reason 12 without VST3 capability only VST2...

    @Jae Marrs I'm a little confused here. You say you didn't get an answer but replied to none of the emails you were sent. You're in contact with our specialists, simply get back to them if the solutions provided didn't work.
