Native Access 3.01, Kontakt 5 and 2 libraries

edited November 2022 in Native Access

First off, after uninstalling Native Access, reinstalling and installing the NTKDaemon, NA still takes 5-8 minutes to load dependencies and my products. This system has seriously gone backwards. A problem, but not the show stopper.

I have Acoustic Legends HD and Rich Redmond Modern Country Drums libraries on my system in the same place I have 14 other libraries that are functional. I moved every library to a new 2TB pcie nvme drive. These 2 libraries are not locateable in Access - they worked prior to the move and are located under a heirarchy of H:Native Instruments/Kontakt 5/ and each library by name. Nothing changed, I merely copied to the new drive, and gave it the old drive's name and letter.

Easy, right? For all but these 2 libraries - indeed easy.

I went into the registry per the uninstall a library from Native Access, took pics of the NI folder showing them gone, they are still there when I reopen Access. I point Access to exactly where they are, and indeed the .nicnt file for RR Drums is there, but the Acoustic Legends HD has no .nicnt file - it never has yet it worked before. Totally lost still after 4 hours battling this.

Please see the screenshots.

Thanks for havin' a think on my problemo - Shep

    thanks, friend. I did this yesterday. They said to delete my current install and to download from provided links that include a .nicnt file.

    All my Kontakt libraries are now fully functional in my full 5.6.8, save for Picked Acoustic (ugh).

    So, I hafta pay $100 just to get them all under one hood in K7.

    Thanks much for taking time for me.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Hello,

    have you checked read read/write access to those folders. Also try to deactivate the "controlled folders" option. Could be also an issue with a third party antivirus software. Windows can behave very strange after moving folders on terms of folder/file access rights.

    If there are no nicnt files in these libraries folders, since they are third party, you'll need to re-download the libraries from the third party developers. If these are older products they might not have the nicnt file at all, better check with them as well.

    Hi Jeremy, I've already redownloaded them, and get the exact same result.

    I finally got Rich Redmond Library to work. I went to the vendors tab and it worked from there.

    I have no idea what difference that could have made. I really want this Acoustic Library back.

    If there's no .nicnt file, how is K5 supposed to register it as legal and make a loadable library for it?


    Thanks much for chiming in for me.

    @jsavino You would have to check with the developer of this library why there is no nicnt file in their library and how to install and authorize it.
