Does Live 9 no Longer Import N.I. .nki's?

When I try to import .nki's into Sampler it freezes at "preparing to import" --Stone cold dead....

Is there a new way or work around for this?

 

Live 9.03 32 bit

Win 7 64 bit/ 16 gig mem

    by the way... ableton.. people like me email you a question.. then google this.. see you've done nothing to answer it and get SO FED UP.. what is wrong with you?  is ableton about to go bust? your bugs and customer service are the worst I've ever experienced... these are often signs of companies that have checked out and don't care..

    9.0.3 has many problems. this may be a symptom of one of them. try going back to 9.0.2. if that doesn't work i am not sure what is up. i didn't even know that it could take nki files. good to know.

    Actually I might have the answer to this. As of recent Kontakt Instruments come along with the NCW lossless format for the multisamples instead of WAV. I think Ableton's Sampler crashes when dealing with these kind of files.

    Ableton Inc. please update Sampler so that it reads NCW also!

    Install Kontakt 3.0.1 and save your nki`s as patch + samples with it. This nki`s can be imported to Live 9.

    I love Ableton and it's a wonderful product, very stable.  I admit that .nki support fix would be very helpful.  Just crashed mid-project while 'preparing to import.

    Hi everybody, just a little heads up on this one. 

    Native Instrument changed the .nki format with Kontakt 4.2.2, and since then our Sampler can not read these files properly anymore. 

    We have filed a story in our backlog to track this issue, but currently we are unsure, whether it is for us to actually fix this. 

    Every .nki file from a Kontakt version prior to 4.2.2 should import just fine. 

    We hope this could at least explain things a little better. 

    Best, 

    David
