Ableton Fails to open the audio device "Komplete Audio ASIO Driver"

I feel like I have really tried everything today, please help.

I am struggling to get my new Komplete Audio 6 Mk2 interface to work with ASIO audio drivers in Ableton (version 10.1.1)

The KA6MK2 firmware updater was failing to read the device, and after much googling and reattempting to reinstall the drivers (Including full uninstall from Device Manager and multiple system restarts) I ended up reinstalling my Windows 10 completely.

After the clean operating system installation and updating all outstanding windows updates (I am on Windows 10 Home version 10.0.18362) my NI firmware updater successfully brought my interface to version 0.2.4.
Now I have run the KA6MK2 audio drivers installation successfully again, and no errors seem present. When I try to select the ASIO driver for Ableton, and select the Komplete Audio 6 as the device, Ableton reports that it has "Failed to open the audio device Komplete Audio AIO Driver"

As suggested by another forum topic, I have also tried unchecking the device property "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" and switching my system sound to a different device as to not interrupt Ableton from using the device and its driver.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver multiple times, with and without the interface connected, and restarted my computer many times. Everything seems to be working properly but Ableton cannot work it out. Does the USB driver really contain the correct ASIO driver?

I am out of ideas so I am writing here. Any ideas?

Thanks, Jordan.
