Hello

I am having issues opening older FL Studio sessions on my new computer. My old computer I had my kontakt 6 libraries on my internal drive but with my new computer, I am hosting them on an external SSD. When I try to open my older sessions, kontakt 6 instruments do no load, I do not even get an error pop up window asking me to locate them. Kontakt 6 loads but it is empty. How can I get my kontakt 6 instruments to load on my new computer, when I open older sessions. Thank you

    Hello Jeremy,

    Yes, it was fixed. Thank you so much. So, the reason why I wasn't getting the "Content location" / "locate samples" pop up window, was because on my old computer, I was using Kontakt 6 vst2. Because Stienbger announced that they will no longer support vst2, NI had to take out the vst2 version of Kontakt 6 from the native access installer. So now, the only version that gets installed is the vst3. That is why I was having the issue.

    What I did was, copied and paste the vst2.dll from my old computer to my new one and that fixed the issue. Now I get the, "Content Location" / "Locate Samples" pop up window to appear. Thank you

    Hello,

    have you opened kontakt stand alone first, so it can scan all libraries and build up the database it needs in order to work correctly afaik?

    Hi Owe303,

    Yes, I have. but I thikn you are refering to the kontakt tabs. I am not talking about kontakt tabs on the left hand side. I am talking about the instruments on the right side where they are loaded and ready to play. Those instruments don't load or get prompted to look for the location when I load a older session

    @Sid1 Can you post a screenshot of that message? "Those instruments don't load or get prompted to look for the location when I load a older session"

    What version of Kontakt 6 is installed on the old computer, on the new? Can you check in standalone and in FL Studio? You just need to click on the NI logo in Kontakt's window. What's your operating system?

    Hi Jeremy,

    There is no message that pops up. There is not even a window that asks for me to locate the samples. They do not get prompted for the location when I load an older session.


    I am using K6 6.8.0. on both computers, old and new

    Old computer windows 10. New computer windows 11


    In the picture I uploaded, you can see that, when I open an older session, to the left I have 2 kontakt 6 instances with midi information. but I do not get prompted to locate the missing samples. Please help
