Installing Expansions on a second computer with Native Access

I have a second computer and want to use my Native products there as well. All the Kontakt Libs can be installed just be clicking the magnifying glass Icon in Native Access. But there is no such icon at the expansions.

How to install / locate expansions? Re-downloading? NOT really?

    You mean you use the same external disc for both computers or what is the situation exactly?

    Yes. It is all on one external SSD. This SSD works just fine on my other computer. Now I have a second one. I want to use all my Native Access products there as well. I changed the data location path to exactly the same SSD. As far as I understand I have than to point to the path of every library by clicking on the magnifying glass. Sadly there are no magnifying glas beside the extensions. They are only at the Kontakt Libs. All the plug ins I have to install anyway.

    Do I really need to download ALL 35 expansions despite they are already on the SSD?

    I don't know, I have no experience with this setup.

    Hey holydisc, I'm afraid you'll have to re-download the expansions. The locate function is only available for Kontakt libraries. I believe my colleagues, Native Access specialists might have a solution for this but it's a bit hacky, better to contact them directly here: http://bit.ly/NIsupport_install
