Kontakt problem (slow loading because of a "freeze" before loading)


I was wondering if anyone has come across this problem I'm having at the moment, which I think was introduced after the Kontakt 5.6 update or one shortly before that.

Basically, what's happening and wasn't before is that whenever I open a patch Kontakt, along with the DAW I'm using (it also happens with standalone Kontakt) freezes for a while before actually loading the patch and giving the patch loading dialogue. The duration of the freeze seems to be longer when using it as VST plugins, and using it in standalone it displays the Windows loading logo during the freeze.

I don't, however, remember having this problem earlier, patches loaded pretty quickly.

I'm running on Windows 10 (that was fairly recently updated as well, might be a culprit or part of the reason as well), i5 3570K, 32 GB RAM, problem occurs both on HDD and SSD drives.

Any help would be appreciated, especially from someone who possibly experienced the same thing.

Actually I just managed to Google this: Kontakt libraries long loading times!

It seems to help some, but still, if anyone knows any other possible tricks please let me/us know!
