Hi, hope some experts can help. I installed Cubase 8 yesterday, and things seemed to be working fine, but today, my Kontakt 8 plugins are all appearing as demo versions. The warning I get tells me to go to Service Center to activate the plugins, but of course, they are all already activated from NI’s point of view, sitting in the VSTPlugins library under Cubase 6 (64-bit). I should note that during the Cubase 8 installation, I did get the error message “This software requires installation of device driver TPkd and a reboot before running. Please reboot or reinstall the software.”
It was odd that they all seemed to work at first. Maybe I was hallucinating.
I checked the settings under Plugin Manager to ensure that my Cubase 6 plugin library was included in the path (it was). I rescanned the libraries, and I got the same TPkd error again.
What should I do?
BTW, the project I tried under Cubase 8 also does not work under Cubase 6 any more because Cubase or NI or whatever thinks the Kontakt plugins are demo, and timed out. So I can’t work on this project any more. This would apply to Guitar Rig 5, as well as Scarbee bass, Mark I electric piano, and Absynth.
Before I go find a TPkd drive and rescan my libraries for plugins, has anybody been through this already?
Thanks in advance.
