Komplete Kontrol Scan hangs up

Hello, after the last update of Komplete Kontrol nothing works for me. When I start Komplete Kontrol, the scan hangs on various plugins like Halion Symphonic Orchestra, SpectraLayers, True Iron, etc.

Is it possible to skip these plugins with a command ?

Since I couldn't do a full scan yet, I can't use the Komplete Kontrol plugin at the moment.

    Try press ESC

    If you are on Windows you can open task manager then kill the scanapp process if its stuck. On mac I think you can do the same.

    I have the same problem, mostly, but not exclusively, with iZotope plugins. Killing the task and restarting will eventually get you trough. But it can take ages, depending on the number of your plugins.

    It seems to be mostly the VST2 variations of plugins, so you should try excluding that folder from the scan. However, I also have it hang with VST3 plugins at times, like Wave's Waveshell for example. I have no idea why.

    Since this has been a frequent problem for years, could we expect a fix for that any time soon, please, NI?


    With the latest KK version, I can also no longer overcome it getting stuck. When I kill the task, it gets stuck with something else, rinse and repeat. It is mostly the same 4-5 plugins that take turns in going through and getting stuck, depending who's turn it is.

    Only workaround: in Windows task manager there are two tasks. One is the scanning task. You can kill that seperately, and then KK will open so you can review paths. Good luck!

    And, PLEASE fix it, NI!

    Same thing here - since upgrade to Komplete 14 Collector - When using KK as a plugin, the scan stopped all the time and freeze the DAW and tghe scan process at Replika (NI Effect).
