during the native access install, I get the dependencies taking too long warning, then it just spins forever.

on my win 10, I was crashing every time I started maschine 2. I also had a super scattered database so I did my best to delete all NI files, and re-install. now I can't download the thing that helps me download the thing that I need to download and install my goodies. this forum has a place where the download 'here' isn't hilighted for pc, only Mac.

    I didn't even think of it as NA2 as I assumed NA just got a fresh coat of paint.. I was able to re-install NA1, but the saga continues as the maschine2 failed to install. maybe there is a specific order of reinstalling everything.? I turned off firewall for NI apps n downloads. thanks tho, your 1st question fixed my immediate problem. its weird that NI1 is unable to install maschine2, it could do updates and other installs just a few weeks ago. thnx ugen

    Native Access 2 Freezes on “Installing Dependencies“ at Startup (Windows) – Native Instruments (native-instruments.com) this or:

    Native Access 2 (native-instruments.com) have you tried na2, sometimes i can be a rights issue and creating a new admin user to install can help. Otherwise we need support from native.

    Ohh sorry i was not clear enough, na1 and na2 are two different programs, na2 is the new version and you can download it via the link i posted and try if it works. But na1 should do the job too. there is a reg clean tool you can try to clean maschine app reg keys andd re try to download.

    I hadn't seen this.ive been working out of na1 for a few months and most products won't reinstall or repair. Thankfully maschine 2 works, massive does, and about 1/5 of sounds/loops/one shots/instruments. Which still leaves a huge variety, &tbh, with a little modulation I could make anything I'm missing from what I can access. what becomes annoying is my browser lists all the goodies and ill go to load something on a track, it will load and even do a quick audition and then go silent as the dreaded popup appears quite a ways from the browser menu to confirm the popup, which I need to click and then try the next sound. I'm doing 7-10 of those cycles to get a sound I can access. The fact that it plays the sound, means the files are not lost, maybe the reg thing.. I'm gonna try the reg clean tool to re download.

    So some things I was able to reinstall did weird stuff.i would confirm where na wanted to install things and it might put all the varied maschine2 files in multiple spots, with about half my native instrument file paths leading to empty folders. That along with piss poor file management before I had a clue what I was doing (drums was my first instrument and I didn't know what a firmware update was, or that I didn't need to keep installer files after by way of miracle got a vst working here) has me thinking multiple duplicates is fouling things up. Weird stuff like going to open a project and every vst I used on it no longer work even though I didn't move those files since project was worked on.


    I know this us a lot of things/grievances. And I'm not expecting anything like a miracle cure.ive tried wiping my computer of all ni files and for about a half dozen things, I get a error saying the app is in use and can't delete even when I have zero things cooking. So I can't do a clean re install, because the remaining leave file droppings everywhere like mouse turds. So I I'm pretty close to giving up the idea of having this ever work until I get a new computer...hm. I'm not opposed to wiping my whole pc, do you have any experience or advice with that?

    Thanks for the earlier responses btw , and thanks to anyone who reads the above.
