    Hi,

    Can't load my new instrument (Cuba) in Kontakt 5 (updated) when used in Cubase Elements 8 (V 8.0.40 last version). Works fine in standalone. I get the following message;

    "This patch was generated by a newer version of the application. Please upgrade your copy to load the patch."

    Cuba is suposed to be compatible with Kontakt 5.

    Thanks

    Sounds like the plugin version of Kontakt wasn't updated properly. Try to repair the installation via Native Access, if this doesn't work, uninstall Kontakt completely then reinstall it.

    Thanks EvilDragon. I reinstalled Kontakt 5 and rebooted my computer. I get the same error message.

    Then it could be that the VST plugin doesn't get installed to the correct path. Verify the VST path in Native Access and also see if you can see Kontakt DLLs in the VST path that Cubase is looking into.

    (BTW you don't need to reboot after reinstalling.)

    Native Access does not give me options where to install Kontakt 5. It should be installed in the Cubase folder. But there is a procedure to indicate Cubase where the plugins are. I did this as I did it at my first installation. The Kontakt DLL is in Cubase/VSTPlugins64.

    Thanks

    Sure does, go to NA preferences.

    Make sure VST 64 location is the same as the one Cubase expects.
