Does Purchasing Kontakt 7 Allow You to Download Kontakt 6?

I have a friend who wants Kontakt 7 but is on Windows 11. Apparently K7 is not working on W11.

I am wondering, if he buys K7, can you still download older versions of Kontakt and will the Kontakt Full license apply?

I was certain I did that years ago when I bought Kontakt 6 I was able to download Kontakt 5 and K5 showed as licensed.

    No, one may not use Kontakt 6 using Kontakt 7 licence. Maybe NI could revert K7 licence to K6 licence upon request. But to go back to K7 one would have to buy upgrade, I guess. But, maybe I am wrong...

    Definitely, without negotiation with NI K7 licence cannot be used for K6.

    Hey @DarylWise Kontakt 7 works on Windows 11, it's in the system requirements.

    It means that your friend should get in touch with support to help him make Kontakt 7 on his system, here is a link:

    Kontakt full licences are not backward compatible but you can always buy second hand licences. If you only need Kontakt Player, we can provide them.
