Does Battery 3 work on Windows 10 64-bit?

    I'm about to purchase a copy of Battery 3 on eBay. Will this version work on Windows 10 64-bit?

    I've read online about people having trouble installing it on Windows 8 and such, but as I understand, it should work as long as I install the latest 3.2.3 update.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    I just went through this today took me ages to figure it out.

    Yep works perfectly, although it's a bit fiddly to set up initially.

    If it's the boxed version like mine:

    - Install Battery from disk (the install will work but the programe won't work)
    - Install NI Service centre
    - Install latest update for the battery from service centre
    - Now the latest update should also install a 64-bit VST in your 64-bit program folder ("C>Program Files>Native Instruments") which you will need to copy and paste to your DAWs VST folder.

    Hi, is there still a possibility to purchase an actual Battery 3 copy?

    Thanks, Daan

    You might have some luck finding either a second hand copy of Battery 3 or an older Komplete version (which included Battery 3) on eBay or other marketplaces.

    An overview of the Komplete versions (and which ones included Battery 3) can be found here:

    You might also try to contact NI Support about this directly: http://www.native-instruments.com/en/company/contact-ni/
