I've reinstalled the Irish harp a couple of times but still can't find it in Kontakt. I can find it in komplete kontrol though, but it just won't be able to load. Can anyone help me with this? Many thanks!

    have you done a rescan of Kontakt plugins?

    The fact that it’s not loading in KK could be normal, since KK is loading Kontakt inside itself

    If by rescanning you mean the rescan knob here:

    Mine is greyed out :(

    To add more context to my question:

    I have a large portion of my native instruments' contents library installed in an external SSD. After that SSD got full, I began to install the instruments on my Mac's Users/Shared folder. It used to work fine. Libraries from both locations can be successfully loaded in Kontakt.

    I just checked Kontakt 7's database and it only shows part of the instruments from the Users/shared folder. The Irish harp, despite being installed in the same location, does not show up here. I then clicked on the add button on the right and added the Irish harp manually and relaunched everything but it still won't show up.

    Think it would be a good idea to figure it out asap because I'm probably going to install most of my later purchased instrument libraries to this Users/Shared folder.

    I have the same issue. I have installed the Irish Harp and did all the correct steps, I even went through the steps of this article

    However, the plugin won't play in the Komplete Kontrol no matter what I do. It shows up gray and there is this message: Could not load plugin

    @Sanskiii What version of Kontakt are you using? Irish Harp requires Kontakt 7.3.0 as a minimum.

    Turns out my Kontakt version is out of date. Just updated it to 7 and everything works fine now. Thanks for reminding me!
