I thought I had kontakt 7, but it turns out I had kontakt 7 player. I'm trying to buy Kontakt 7, but I'm giving 2 options below, and the one recommended as best for me to buy is not the full version. Why is this? And what is the difference between the 2 below?

    It is the full version. Only you have right to the update price. The one called Full version only means no product to update from is present in your account, therefore you pay the full price.

    It exists only one Kontakt you can buy. The only other version is Kontakt player which is free

    Practically:

    • Full version: you have to buy the full program for the first time
    • Update: you buy only the update cause you own a previous version
    • Crossgrade: they make you a special price cause you own some other program

    But the 3 of them will give you the complete Kontakt

    You seem to own a full version of e.g. Kontakt 6, which allows you to update to the full version of Kontakt 7 at a reduced cost. That's why it states Update as "Best for you".

    I finally did the update for ~ 49..., deinstalled Kontakt 6, deinstalled the old Kontakt Factory Library and installed the Factory Library 2.

    I have another question. Online when I look up Kontakt 7, it appears that it includes libraries like: Orchestral, acoustic, bands, vintage etc. But I'm not seeing any of them.

    I found them embedded in the Kontakt library.

    The full version of Kontakt provides all the features and functionality available in Kontakt. It offers more advanced editing options, expanded library slots, and additional capabilities for creating and manipulating sounds. The full version is suitable for users who require extensive sound design, custom library creation, and advanced control over their instruments.
