The way NKS works is that first a folder with the and audio presets are copied into c:/Program Files/FAW/SubLab/ThirdParty
Then we write into the registry the path where KK has to look for these presets ( c:/Program Files/FAW/SubLab/ThirdParty ).
Somewhere along this path, things have gone wrong, either the files are not copied (which I don’t think is the case) or the registry entry is not working.
The weird thing is that this was a known issue with the second last update of Maschine and KK. NI released an update and then the icons appeared again and it was fixed.
I’m also not sure what the issue could be from moving the VST to another location. I haven’t tried this, but so long as KK is scanning for plugins correctly and finds the VST, then it should link back to the folder (using the registry entry mentioned above) that contains the images and presets.
The fact that the icon is missing and you have the presets, points to you not having the latest version of KK, but then you would also not see SubLab.
