New mac setup - still have to re-download all expansions?
I have all my expansions on an external. A couple of years ago when I moved to a new mac I had to re-download and install all my expansions, rather than being able to relocate (ala kontakt) or being able to point to a folder in maschine. Is that still the case?
When logging into Native Access on your new computer, you'll see a 'Relocate' or 'Reinstall' popping-up when clicking on 'Repair'.
Point them in the according directory and that should do the trick.0
It works for expansions as well.0
@Nico_NI I don't have that option on my system. Remember, this is a new mac so maschine etc has had to be installed from scratch which means it has no 'repair' because as far as its aware, I've never installed Hexagon Highway. FYI, I also don't have the repair option for kontakt libraries either, just install or locate. Locate does NOT appear for maschine or battery though.
I think you're getting confused between installations and moving libraries?1

Correct, same experience here.
There's a trick to make NA think the products are installed so you can use the "Relocate" function if you still have access to your old mac:
- In Finder go to HD ➡ Library ➡ Preferences
- Look for .Plist files that start with "com.native-instruments.XYZ-product-name" and copy them from the old computer to the new one to the same folder.
- Then just start NA and you can use the Relocate thingy.
Works on M1's too, here's an example:
Try it for just 1 Expansion first, if it's all good do the rest.4
