    That happened to me also. K6 couldn't find "Earth.nicnt". I had originally used "Spitfire Earth.nicnt" as the nicnt file, but after that error, I renamed it to Earth.nicnt, and it started working again.

    i think you need to add the library to the kontakt browser list.

    Same here with Kontakt 6 Portable. eDNA did work but I switched to Kontakt Portable some months ago and did not check eDNA, but after I read this post, I did and found out it is not working anymore.
    Error massage when trying to load an instrument:
    "This instrument belongs to a library that is currently not installed"

    Of course it is installed and shows up just normal in the library tab, but...

    It usually happens when the SNPID number in the .nicnt file is modified, not the original one. In some libraries there are other codes regarding to the factory-given SNPID code, so you shouldn't change it.
    I don't have this library to check the .nicnt file that it was released with, and can't test it.
    But there was an emulator version of 5.7.3 that came with the vast majority of known libraries preadded in NativeAccess file. Normally this file doesn't contain the libraries' info because they are in separate .xml file but that version of Kontakt had it this way (and that was also the reason why people shouldn't update from that version to the newer symlink versions).

    Anyway, first check the content of the .nicnt file, if the SNPID number matches with the one in the .xml file created with the name of the library in Service Center folder. Then check in that .xml file if you see similarities with the text (I'm copying here) from that NativeAccess.xml file of the emulator version:

    <Product version="2">
    <UPID>4648f8ea-76ed-4b91-9854-0459c8b429e1</UPID>
    <Name>Earth</Name>
    <Type>Content</Type>
    <RegKey>Earth</RegKey>
    <SNPID>519</SNPID>
    <AuthSystem>RAS2</AuthSystem>
    <Relevance>
    <Application nativeContent="true">Kontakt</Application>

    <Visibility type="Number">3</Visibility>
    </ProductSpecific>
    <Company>Spitfire Audio</Company>
    <NKSEnabled>false</NKSEnabled>
    <Icon>spitfire</Icon>
    </Product>

    If everything seems normal, there is one more option to try. Remove that library from Kontakt. Close Kontakt. Removing the {library's_name}.xml, and from registry (in case of windows, in mac it would be a .plist file in Library/Preferences).
    Then try adding it again in Kontakt.

    Depending on your Kontakt version and release, it can happen that that version also have the NativeAccess.xml preloaded with all of the known libraries data and it may differ from the .nicnt file you have for this library.

    Hey Jazzzz !

    Thank you very much for the tips. eDNA is working now! :wink:

    First of all, I use the portable version of Kontakt 6.0.2 R050.
    I removed eDNA from Kontakt with the Library Manager.

    Searched in my registry, but I think because I use the portable version there was nothing found to be removed.
    I checked the .nicnt File and i said exactly what you posted here.

    My NativeAccess file also did not have anything inside with regard to eDNA, BUT
    in c:\Program Files\Kontakt6Portable\UserData\Service Center\ I found a file named LibraryHints.xml.
    After adding eDNA to Kontakt again, I found this:

    <Library>
    <Name>Spitfire eDNA Earth</Name>
    <Company>(Self-made)</Company>
    <SNPID>A0C</SNPID>
    <Relevance>
    <Application nativeContent="true">Kontakt</Application>
    </Relevance>
    <RegKey>5F752C43-C7B9-48B6-AFFB-E5527011ADA5</RegKey>
    </Library>

    Then I changed the <SNPID from A0C to 519 in LibraryHints.xml and all of a sudden - the library worked ;)

    So the SNPID code was the problem, as you said. Thanks man!

    Hope others can make eDNA workable again too.
