Why is Native Access 2 preventing me from purchasing the $199 Kontakt bundle?
The only document I could find for the Kontakt factory Instruments library does not include saxes - the most important instruments to me. Not even in the Vienna library it mentions. And certainly the sampler link you provided sheds no light. Sorry Blindeddie
I completed The NA v2 signup and downloaded Kontact 6 from the only Icon offered for Kontact 6. At first it said "something went wrong, please try the homepage". I did so and picked the $199 bundle then downloaded Kontakt 6 and all the libraries that came with it. I soon noticed I had the Kontact 6 Player and consequently the so-called Factory instrument Library is a sampler trimmed down to a little over 600 MB, And the player would not load any of the .nki samples.
So as near as I can figure NA v2 knows I am in the US and wants me to purchase from a stateside reseller, such as Sweetwater, instead of direct. Instead it sends me the free sampler package. If it is not a matter of sales territories there must be something wrong with the NI website. It's also odd to me that the NI website consistently offers a blank page when I click on the Product Catalog. It does not even show Kontakt as a product on the home page, just the Komplete offerings. - you have to type Kontakt into a search box to find it. Note that I can reproduce the same results from win11, Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04 and iPhone with ios 15.5.
With no ability to get Native Access to allow me buy the $199 full featured Kontakt and the REAL factory instrument library I am stymied. Further, since the website touts the factory library as having tens of gigabytes in 1000 different instruments, but offers no specific information, I am not willing to put up my $199 and hope for the best. Would you?

Kontakt 6 is on NI product page.
Just, one has to roll down...
I guess Native Access is not to buy plugins. One has to go to NI (or any other) e-shop....
I do not know if Kontakt Factory Library contains saxes. (I tried to find and not found any, but I may be wrong....)
But, if you are seeking sax, why not to buy Session Horns Pro. It contains Alto, Baritone and Tenor Saxes. And you do not need Full Kontakt to use it (I guess), Kontakt Player should do.
Or lighter version Session Horns.0
Products cannot be purchased via Native Access, only activated and downloaded.
