Is it possible to locate all products in Native Access?

When opening Native Access, if the instrument libraries have already been downloaded onto an external hard drive, is it possible to batch or bulk locate the sample libraries pointing them to the hard drive, or is it necessary to do one at a time?

Many thanks.

    If you have all your libraries under the same location path, then you can open Native Access options, and put that path there. Then restart the program and it should be able to find everything.

    However, if you use different folders for your libraries, you have to do it one by one, by clicking "Relocate".

    Thanks very much for the reply.

    My library is external hard drive - users - shared - Abbey Road 50's etc

    Essentially they are all in the same shared folder location however, they do need their own location if that makes sense. Please see screenshot.

    I've located some manually but will take ages doing them individually.

    I can only see just few libraries, so obviously it will not take ages to install. Unless you have many more that not show in the photos.

    Either way, if what i told you to do is not working, then manual install is the only way i'm afraid.

    On Windows, you can work with the Registry, to change some locations without reinstall but on Mac there is no registry. Perhaps, if you open some of those plist files with a text editor and edit the paths, is can work, but i can't help with this, since i use Windows and don't know much about Mac

    The way to do it (if they are all under your shared folder):

    Open NA, go in the “installed” tab, push the refresh button (the arrow running in a circle, see attached screenshot) to be sure all the installed libraries that need to be relocated shows the locate button. Then push “locate all” and point the opening menu to the shared folder.

    Voilá…all the libraries that need to be relocated will be done in one time

    Unfortunately you need to locate the libraries one by one: Reinstalling a KOMPLETE Bundle Without Re-Downloading KONTAKT Libraries
