    Hi friends, since I formatted my Mac, I''m having a hard time trying to install Kontakt libraries through Kontakt 5 and then load in 6.
    Already tried many versions of Kontakt 5, but instlalled libraries ate not showing up in Kontakt 6.
    Can someone please give me an advice wich versions are the best or more practical for use ?

    So from what you are saying, you are on macOS, right?

    If so, just go into Service Center and check each .xml file for each lib.
    They may say an SNPID # of 000.
    Change this to the number mentioned in the .nicnt with TextEditor and hit cmd s to save the change.
    Never have two standalone Kontakts open and don't have your daw open with a plugin version of Kontakt when you are adding libraries.

    If actually on Windows, you have misunderstood & are trying to follow the macOS workaround for the lack of Add Library button from 5.6.x whatever.
    And you should just be using the AddLibrary.exe supplied by the crackers for Win users.

    It seems that it matches, but still not working.

    The .nicnt you are showing is homemade, hence your problem.
    I suggest avoiding such things.
    No, it's definitely the Service Center in Library/Native Instruments/.
    Care not about what does or doesn't show in K5. It's just for adding.
    Yes, the library has not been deleted.
    Click 'Hide' library or whatever it is, in K6.

    So now you are bothered about libs remaining that you don't want, did my first answer help or not with any other libraries other than this bundle with the homemade .nicnt?
    Or have you got a load of libs with homemade .nicnt files?

    Oh. Hang on...
    Which macoS are you?
    And you know you are trying to get help for libraries that DID NOT come from the sister site?
    I imagine you may even be trying to use a Kontakt release from elsewhere too.
    Good luck.
    Sorry nothing I said is of any help.
    And now you have conflicts due to having other libraries, and/or you are on Mohave+,

    Mac 10.15.7
    I'm assuming that after I used and customised some settings in these libraries, they turned into NICT files (customised libs), right ?

    No. Any change and subsequent saving of presets is separate to the .nicnt.
    Legit or non-legit/unrequired .nicnt files equally.
    What I mean is you have a homemade .nicnt file from the torrent people.
    And it's not even needed!

    @Smoove Grooves Sorry for diverting the topic, is there any way or modification so that the kontakt libraries do not show up as demos in a legitimate kontakt?

    I'm fine with "diverting"! :winker:
    Yeah, the only answer is to use a cracked version of Kontakt! :)
    Or to buy the libs you use.

    Use kontakted as that should solve your problems.

    Using ANYTHING to create bespoke .nicnt files is the source of all these problems.
    Especially when the libs wiil open via .nki without a .nicnt! haha

    The key element thats missing in the home made nicnt is
    <HU>6C70AC13E02414D1A552685A1301D859</HU>
    <JDX>023733942B73318EAEAD914E3981EC68BE72519A2F5738F828A6A028C4E1DBAC</JDX>

    With kontakted, it adds that string to the nicnt, hence making it work and show up in 6.5x

    Disagree is neutral, not Negative.
    And it's because of this fact:
    I am aware that it can look for conflicts with SNPID #s.
    But then why do people want to do this with libs that don't need it anyway?
    This is my main point.
    Plus we're now just trouble-shooting something from a torrent, not from trusted AZ.
    Hence this problem in the first place.
