How do I Remove a Kontakt Library?

In Kontakt I only see a way to Hide libraries but not remove.

I have deleted the library folder and it still shows up in Kontakt and under Installed in Native Access.

Some libraries I just don't like enough to use and don't want to take up the space.

Just trying to clean house a little and finding no help from the NI apps or in my searches. Why don't they have a Remove/Uninstall button for each item in Native Access?

Is NI saying "How dare you remove our content. You're on your own."

    Haha. Ok. I see now. You can't do it through Native Access. Windows can remove each as if it were its own app from the Apps & Features ControlPanel area. Still think NA should at least point to this.

    Actually the Uninstall method does not always work it seems. I tried uninstalling Kontakt Factory Selection since I have the full version but I get Windows errors saying it cannot find the Setup PC.exe.

    Search the support section of the NI website for the phrase "NI Uninstall Tool", download and run it. Even though Windows P&F has removed the libraries, the NI tool cleans all of the registry entries as well as saves a reg32 document in case you change your mind.

    Just deleting the libraries is not the cleanest way to go.

    I'm not finding any results for where the tool is. Only how to use it.

    Do you happen to have a link?

    @Ghost_Train My bad. I didn't get the entire filename correct in my reply.

    You are looking for <NI Uninstall RegTool_64bit.exe>

    at the bottom of this article:

    [This CAN be confused with the NI SUPPORT Tool, which is only sent to you via a support ticket by the genies...😏]
