Korg PadKontrol in Elements 6

Hi folks! I sure could use some help. I’m wondering if anyone has had similar problems to what I am about to describe and if so what you did to mitigate them? Be gentle with me as I am kind of new to computer music production. :wink:
Ok here goes:
I cannot see the PadKontrol in either 32 or 64 bit version of CE6. It also does not show up in any of my VSTs either within CE6 as presets or as stand alones. I have never had this kind of problem with hardware. I use a Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 Interface and have an M-Audio Axiom 61 Gen2 and a Casio WK7500 all of which are USB and all show up in the Device Setup section and function perfectly in CE6. The PadKontrol was to be my drum pad/controller but at this point I’m ready to scrap it and start over with something else.
The PadKontrol DOES show up in windows 7 device manager and is functional IF I connect it using MIDI in/out cables plugged into the Axiom, but it will not control any drum presets.
What am I missing? :confused:
