1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, 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 :


    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 :(

    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.
