How to remove library from Komplete Kontrol only?

I have a factory library that appears under the wrong vendor in Komplete Kontrol and would like to remove it solely, whilst keeping it visible in Kontakt. I am unsure how to do this without removing it completely.

I am of the persuasion, that this will require me to edit some meta data, though would like to know if anybody has a solution for this.

Has anybody else had or resolved this issue?

    Did you ever find a solution for this? I have libraries that show up like this as well.

    The library will be removed from Komplete Kontrol, but it will not be deleted from your hard drive. If you want to completely remove the library from your computer, you will need to manually delete its files and folders from your hard drive.

    I have deleted instruments / libraries from my hard drive but a geryed out icon for the instrument still shows up inKomplete Kontrol.

    How do you get the software to recognise the instrument / library are no longer there ?

    Open the Komplete Kontrol software on your computer.Click on the "Libraries" tab in the left-hand sidebar.Find the library you want to remove and click on the "Settings" icon (gear icon) next to it.In the library settings, click on the "Remove Library" button at the bottom of the window.Confirm that you want to remove the library by clicking "Yes" when prompted.The library will be removed from Komplete Kontrol, but the files will remain on your hard drive. If you want to completely remove the library from your computer, you will need to manually delete the files from your hard drive.

    The image tabs are only visible if you have presets still stored for the respective plugin. @william1122 seems to be referring to removing libraries from Kontakt. Images will be stored in either in your NI resources folder or the NKS PAResources folder in the plugin library (usually a backup here for 3rd party vendors).

    I deleted this library completely in the end and believe my initial diagnosis was probably correct. It was a meta data issue. NI do not give you the option to edit these values natively. I think the Plugin vendor in this case AudioBro, may have made a blunder in this case.

    The library will be eliminated from Komplete Kontrol, yet it won't be erased from your hard drive. If you have any desire to totally eliminate the library from your PC, you should physically erase its records and envelopes from your hard drive.

    Hi!

    I'm trying to follow these instructions so i can remove certain libraries from Komplete Kontrol.

    I have the software loaded and the libraries tab open. But I cannot see any 'Settings' or gear icons. The only thing I see is an arrow tab, inside the library icons, which load the libraries. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but I just can't see it.

    Would appreciate some further help

    Thanks :)
