Missing Kontakt 5 player in upgrade

Just upgraded to Cubase 9 Elements and my Kontakt 5 player + libraries are no where to be found. Is Cubase 9 for some reason not identifying Kontakt in the right folder or something? Someone please tell me how to get it working again…all my other VST’s were automatically recognized with no adjustments needed. Thanks guys!


Make sure, the dedicate path to NI products is available in the Plug-in Manager, please. NI plug-ins are not installed to the common folder, you have to set it up.

Make sure 64-bit version of your Kontakt is installed, please. Is it in the Backlist of the Plug-in Manager?
