1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

Solved Komplete Kontrol Standalone & VST Crash on Startup

    When I open Komplete Kontrol Standalone, or VST, after the "Initilizing GUI" step, I get a message saying the program has crashed, and a crashlog was generated -- but the program dosn't close.

    However, it causes problems in my DAW (REAPER) which causes REAPER to crash -- which has never ever crashed before until now.

    I've already tried the following :

    I've also tried Marcel's procedures here :

    https://support.native-instruments....plete-Kontrol-Crash-Crashlog-submittal-en-us-

    Lastly, I've also tried completely uninstalling and then reinstalling Komplete Kontrol. And even If I delete all the plugin locations in Komplete Kontrol, it still crashes as well.

    I've tried everything! I've opened a ticket with NI, but am wondering if anyone else has ran into this and tried anything that wasn't in my above links.

    Try installing Komplete Kontrol as admin.

    I have uac disabled on Windows 7 so that shouldn't matter. I did it anyways and same problem. It just stared happening recently within the past week or two.

    I think I have the same issue.

    I am running the latest version of all software (64 bit), except Windows 10 Pro (which is running on 17134.472 - business ring).
    Ableton Live 10 kept crashing and I nailed it down to Maschine and Komplete Kontrol Plugins.
    I started up Maschine standalone and Komplete Kontrol standalone and noticed they were crashing too.
    So I uninstalled both Maschine and Komplete, and only then Ableton Live 10 was fine.

    However installing Maschine and/or Komplete Kontrol again simply brings back exactly the same behaviour :(

    Cheers.

    I ended up solving the issue myself.

    I believe It was due to windows updates.

    There was a .NET Security Update that always failed to install on my computer, so I had to run a bunch of tools to cleanup old failed windows updates, install some new ones, ETC.

    The following forum was extremely helpful, follow steps 1-4.

    Thanks, I'm fixed as well taking your tip!

    In addition, as the .NET repair tool does not work for Windows 10 I simply reinstalled the .NET libraries under Windows Programs and features/Turn Windows Features on and off.
