Hopefully I'm not in the wrong place here...

Got Gofriller Solo Cello in the mail today.

Problem: Kontakt 2 VST crashes Cubase SX 3.1.1 when selected. Cubase goes dead then BSOD follows

Edit: The Standalone Kontakt Player works ok

But before I get BSOD, I'm able to bring up task manager to attempt to end Cubase (task manager takes 5 minutes to appear). It says my CPU usage is 100% ... How can that be? I'm by no means a techie so maybe someone can help me out here.

In my research before posting, I was able to ascertain that there are supposedly "issues" with using Kontakt 2 as a VST with Cubase. I wasn't able to find specifics as to what the issues were however.

Installation went fine. My DAW isn't connected online. I'm going through the offline activation process which has hit a snag. Is that a problem maybe?

Note - GS3 is not running at the same time. Only Cubase
