Kontakt Drag & drop in Sonar

Window 7 Ult, 64 bit, 20 GB ram
Sonar. 8.5.3 (64 bit)

If I am running Kontakt 64 bit version, as a soft synth in Sonar 64 bit, when I drag and drop to load an instrument into Konakt (3, 4, or 5), there is a long delay and the host freezes until the delay is over (10 to 30 seconds or longer). Then the instrument finally loads into Kontakt. There is also a delay if I drag and drop a wav file into the Mapping editor.

I tried the J bridged versions on Kontakt and the regular non-J Bridged versions of Kontakt. Same problem whether J Bridged or not.

This loading delay problem never happened in Windows XP.
This loading delay problem does not happen in Reaper.
This loading delay problem does not happen if I load an instrument through the kontakt browser.
