Kontakt 5 In Cubase Elements


Has anyone had this experience?

I have recently updated Kontakt 5 to Version 5.8.0

Once this had completed, I opened my Cubase Elements 9.5.21. In the VST Plug In Manager, my Kontakt 5 VST has vanished and is now in the Blacklist Folder within the VST Plug In Manager. This means that when I go to add an instrument track, Kontakt 5 is no longer an available VST instrument.

Is there something that can be done as I cannot open/use projects that have Kontakt 5 as a VST instrument

Many thanks - Gerald Bellot
