    I'm using cracked Kontakt 6.0.2
    The thing is: when I run the Add Libraries function on the folder I store my libraries at, only some of them are recognized and added to the "libraries" tab. I can use the others if I browse for the instruments on "files" tab, though. All NI libraries are correctly scanned, but only a few of the others.
    I was wondering if there's a way to solve this. And if not, well, the instruments can still be used, so there's that I guess :thumbsup:

    EDIT: I am using windows indeed

    I suppose that you are on windows version. Because on mac the only way to add libraries is to use an older version of Kontakt standalone (preferably 5.6.0).
    So, on windows in the newest versions (5.6.8 and newer) it may not let you add a library if its folder doesn't contain a .nicnt file.
    If it's a library that doesn't need the adding process, you can load the .nkis in the Files tab in Kontakt without issues but if it requires it, you need to get an .nicnt file. Search here on this forum, there are several topics regarding this.

    Install Kontakt 5.6.6. Keep this version because it allows the addition of libraries. If adding recent libraries the app will crash, but will appear in the library of Kontakt 6. So keep the old version as a standalone and use the latest version in your DAW as either VST or AU plugin.

    CosmicStorm Here's the method I use to create .nicnt files using windows for you, (or anyone here), to experiment with, assuming windows is what your using. It's called "KLTools". If you run KLC.exe, and browse for the libraries folder, then press create. It will add a .nicnt, and generic wallpaper, (which will overwrite a wallpaper.png within that folder, so back up any wallpaper up you might want to keep before clicking create library). After you use this, then you can use Kontakt to add, and an .xml file will be created within the NI service center folder (on 64bit windows it's located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Native Instruments\Service Center ). Hope this helps

    KL Tools:

    I have tested, and KL Tools works with every version 5 and 6 of Kontakt. BUT there are those libraries that won't add due to encryption schemes, which can be easily fixed by opening both the .nicnt and .xml files and making sure the "SNPID" lines match. just PM me or reply here if you ever need help with that particular problem :wink:

    I have a related problem. I have the no-install version of kontakt 6 and it came with a library adder, I'm trying to add Mutations 1 and 2. so I added the library (using the library adder that came with Kotakt 6[No-Install] AFTER I created and .nicnt and then used the KLP to patch them and now it's giving me the encryption message saying that I have to install them properly, and that they're encrypted. I think I did one step too many , or out of sequence. I checked the .snpid and the .xml and they line up. How should I go about correcting this?

    Much thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure but it should be enough to just have the plugin of Kontakt 5.6.6. to add old libraries, maybe that will not work if you only have the Kontakt 6 version installed. No problem for me anyway cause I kept my Kontakt 5 when I "installed" Kontakt 6

    What you do is, insert the "Kontakt 5.exe" from v5.6.6 or 5.6.8 to your Kontakt 6 installation folder, and leave it there, alongside the latest (version 6) "Kontakt.exe". Make a shortcut to it. This way you temporarily run Kontakt in v5 mode, at any given moment allowing you to add libraries using version 5's convenient built-in functionality. When done, close Kontakt (5) and start player in "normal" mode, i.e. as Kontakt 6. The library should now appear and be accessible.

    EDIT:
    Hi @CosmicStorm , the above applies also in instances where the KLC.exe .nicnt file creation method is deployed, should libraries fail to show up nontheless. The KLC tool pointed to by @Nana Banana is of course indispensible.

    Thanks Nana! I use this method already, our friend Celtic (if I remember correctly), from the wallpapers thread, sent me everything.
    I shall now find a way to mark this post as solved or something.
    Cheers!

    Hey @bobdule, I used your repacked files and it works great. Two questions about the 64 libraries from the native access:
    1. Are the libraries still secured with a key or can I download them from Native Access and have the full version of the library? (Native Access says "Demo", but I installed one and it worked. But does it still expire after 30 days and have it to be cracked?)
    2. Have you already tried if this method works with the other official libraries?
    Thank you very much

    edit:
    I saw now that with a cracked Kontakt, there is no registration check performed. But my second question remains: Is it possible to download all libraries available over native access with this win-registry method?

    Sorry I'm writing here again, but I found something out: With the registry method you can download many more libraries directly from Native Access. You just have to know the exact name. Is this method already more common? Otherwise someone should make a thread. So you can find out the exact names of even more libraries. @bobdule Did you find this out or from any other source? So you can load the files directly from NI.
