Native Access issue - updates are queued

Like many on this forum I have a problem with Native Access, and updating software with it. I'm on an M1 Mac.

In my specific case, I have Traktor 3.9.0 installed and I want to update it to 3.10.0. When I click on "update" it says "Queued"... and that's it. Nothing happening at all. I also purchased Traktor Plus, that's also "Queued" without any update.

Is there a way, please please please, to skip this idiotic ****** piece of software Native Access?

And yes, I uninstalled / reinstalled / removed files from ~/Library/Preferences, etc etc.

    Im having this issue today, cant download anything. Everything goes to " queued" status or to the Calcaulating Time remaning status (forever)

    Same here. Been a long time since I had any problems with NA, so I can't remember how to fix it haha. The usually effective restart didn't help.

    And here, running an M2 Mac with Sonoma, there's an update for Komplete Kontrol and Kontakt 7 but both just stick on starting/queued. Incredibly frustrating.

    @DonnyMacc Sonoma is not yet supported, as stated here: macOS 14 Sonoma Compatibility Statement

    It seems that a lot of Sonoma users are experiencing similar issues, it seems to be only an installation issue, and the activation works ok, so our support can provide installers if needed. Please get in touch here and ask for installers for the products you wish to install:

    GARBAGE - buy software and can't download it.

    Native Access is a piece of garbage software, I am DONE with it. On my Sonoma Mac it just says 'queued' on software I bought and need to download and install and on my Intel Mac Native Access won't even open, it wants me to undergo some insane hacker operation because it has lost access to it's dependencies whatever that means. Native Access is so bad it essentially stops me using their products because it just NEVER works.

    If you get the "need to install dependencies" every time you open Native Access on a Mac try downloading the NTKDaemon and installing it. This fixed the "need to install..." problem on my Intel Mac (Sonoma).

    Nearly Christmas 2023 and this issue hasn't been solved.

    Their support team is not up to the task. I have been asking them to help me with this issue and then with the links to all the software and I get nothing.

    I purchased Sonuscore library and I can't use it as Native Access doesn't allow me to!

    SERIOUSLY HAVE THEY JOINED THE DEVELOPERS ALPHA AND BETA PROGRAMS OF APPLE? Everything so expensive and works worst than Windows 95!

    I had similar issues. My libraries were all on an external drive and select updates were stuck in the queued cycle. I followed the suggestion from the NI link and read that my hard drive had to be changed to the AFPS format. I transferred the entire hard drive contents to another hard drive, erased the first drive and reformatted it, then drug the contents back to the first hard drive. All the stuck updates then went through just fine.
