    CS4  crashes on start due to VST plugin (Kontakt 3 )

    Level 1
      If you use Sony Acid Pro 6 and the Kontakt 3 music synthesizer VST plugin your upgrade to Premiere Pro CS4 will not work!

      Premiere Pro will crash as soon as it touches the Kontakt 3 DLL located in C:\Program Files\Vstplugins

      There is absolutely no reason why CS4 should access Kontakt 3. This has not been a problem with CS3, CS3 ignores the plugin.

      The workaround is unfortunate and annoying

      1) Move the Kontakt 3 DLL's out of C:\Program Files\Vstplugins
      2) Start Premiere Pro CS4
      3) Move the DLL's back to the Vstplugins folder
