I'm in the process of setting up a new computer. The main aim is to transfer all my existing projects over and get them up and running. On my old computer, I had Kontakt 4 installed, and on my new computer I have Kontakt 5 installed. But, for some bizarre @#$#ing reason, NI in their infinite wisdom decided to rename the plugin to Kontakt 5. Why the @#$# would they do that? Do they WANT to hurt people? Are they that sadistic?

Anyway, my projects all point to the Kontakt 4 version (And Battery would probably have the same problem). Is there any way I can force the Ableton project to use Kontakt 5 instead of 4? I really don't want to install 4 and I really want to use the new version.

Why doesn't Ableton have a hot swap feature for plug-ins like samples? Why is the device just greyed out so I can't do anything?

PS: Yes, I'm aware I can just delete the device and replace it with the Kontakt 5 version, but then I'd lose all the settings for the device.
