USB MIDI is not recognized on Windows 10.

Old KORG USB-MIDI driver may not work correctly due to Windows Update.
Please use the latest Windows 10 KORG USB-MIDI Driver.

    Yeah, same here the microkorg won't show in neither ABLETON, neither FL STUDIO, neither RENOISE. I was always happy with my microkorg. I hope KORG fixes this soon! Damn windows updates all the time! They mess up a perfect setup.

    Here too. Windows 10 won't detect my nanokontrol2. There are no other midi devices in use (clean windows install). I'm running the latest korg midi drivers. Windows won't even detect a new device (I tried several usb cables). Please, help

    My PC wasn't loading up the microkorg either. I was able to dual boot into mac os and got it to work. If you just want to use the microKORG soundeditor, just use mac os, maybe barrow a friends mac if you don't have one.

    I'm trying to use my Microkey on Windows 10. Setup gives an error message saying it cant find drvtools.msi. The first thing the installer does is to decompress that file, but later it cant find it... I don't know what to do. Is there any workarround for this?

    I have installed DrvTools_1_15_r25e on Windows 10 Pro 1709 build 16299.785 and then restarted the system. The KORG NanoKONTROL2 shows up in the Device Manager, but is not recognized by MIDI-OX, or Ableton Live 9.7.2.

    UPDATE: I have fixed the problem by following the instructions in this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9OfwDr8oYQ
