Installation failed: Invalid location.

Running Native Access 3.7.0 on latest mac OS (14.0).

Installing newly purchased Sounds works fine.

Updating ANY of the existing ones (57 updates pending) yields a: "Installation failed: Invalid location." error.

I have previously chosen a new Content Location and the new products get installed exactly there. However, when trying to Repair -- Reinstall ANY of the previously existing one, Native Access comes up with the above error. I've checked System Preferences and given Full Disk Access to Native Access and all of its required daemons.

Any ideas? (Option to Uninstall existing packages is greyed out.)

    Ralf, try to make your own custom folder for plugins and then go to the File Management to change some plugins to that folder you created.

    Hope it helps.

    I fixed my issue by deleting the .plist files for my missing libraries. On a mac, you can find them in Macintosh HD -> Library -> Preferences -> com.native-instruments.[library-name].plist.

    For example: com.native-instruments.Battery 4.plist

    This should remove the "broken installation" icon and allow you to do a fresh reinstall of that library.
