    Hi I have a 5.6.5 Kontakt on my PC. I downloaded a few libraries, and they came without .nicnt files, so I made them. Now it shows the activate button after the library has been added.

    Currently there are no issues while using it, but I'm wondering what I did wrong to cause it to appear, and if I can make it go away.

    The same with EWQL RA. I downloaded Ethno World 5 which was needed to use Ra. The Ethno World 5 is apparently activated whereas Ra is not. How do I fix this?

    Yeah i have the exact same problem. Cant seem to find any fix for it.

    EDIT: It seems that is how it works with R2R versions of kontakt. You need to use the Key_gen to activate the libraries, but a lot of libraries aren't supported still...

    Could be a few reasons, also depends upon what specific set up you are running -

    RA is an way old East West library from ages back that ran on Kontakt B4 East West developed their own propriety system & utilised Kontakt. Don't even know whether RA even ever used Kontakt or was legit. Think we talkin Kontakt 2 & B4 lol. If not it, library not legit & home made conversion type.
    Most likely is something along the lines of you have made a NICNT & wallpaper & added to tab, however the library Still not officially authorised say via service centre as there no serial number in regged orvia service centre etc.
    Examples would include - Legit full version of Kontakt, with say a home made library, wallpaper & NICNT i.e anything you add to library TAB still gonna ask for activation unless registry entry exists.
    Using say R2R version with a library that not been added 2 Keygen with, NICNT & Wallpaper. Therefore library added to tab but reg entry not created via keygen.
    Various other possibilities. Therefore your problem is that the library is added and wallpaper shows however as there no reg entry when Kontakt perform serial check etc it demo-time out the library or ask you 2 activate it as it know it not official etc.
    Various Solutions to your problem include
    1.) Get R2R to add the library to the keygen & therefore create corresponding serial entry - Not gonna happen.
    2.) Pay NI 2 encode your library if it home built and therefore pay 4 library tab official way - About 6 Grand minimum but think you said East West RA so that not gonna happen either I guess
    3.) Create a corresponding Reg entry yourself and insert manually along with necessary files if u got any sort of knowledge that way.
    4.) Search sites and download & install either old R2R version of unlocked Kontakt or install and update to latest version of Unlocked Kontakt rather than using Keygen version etc. Last Unlocked version by R2R of kontakt will run RA etc no problems.

    So solution that best i reckon be to download & install Unlocked rather than keygen etc and then when you add library to tab you won't get Kontakt asking u 2 activate or any problems as unlocked bypass all serial checks etc.
    However may not run latest libraries properly or at all etc however think u can still -> pretty recent etc no real problems. If that a problem just install side by side and that sort that problem tho u need 2 take care of reg conflicts etc. Lot's of other info in threads round here how 2 do that also

    Edit Yeah so instead of messin on installing\unistalling etc leave your existing installation in place. Then just download say unlocked R2R 5.5.2 or something like that I think last installation -
    From installer etc just extract .dll and .exe, rename, place in location i.e Kontakt VST folder.
    Use 5.5.2 Unlocked etc for any libraries that not covered by the keygen - Be aware either or installation pick up corresponding REG entries and may display library i.e 5.6.5 still ask u 2 activate library except that not matter as u got 5.5.2 2 run it fine.
    That solve the problem or if u want clean install just use say most recent version of Unlocked for everything - Up 2 u really.

    Good luck :yes: :bow:

    Don't need to do anything particularly confusing. I simply installed latest R2R version and then installed the latest "no install" version over it. U now have a full and stable 5.6.6 version working and have no "activate" button or issues with libraries being added.

    I think I also went from R2R 5.6.5 to the no install 5.6.6 this way too and it works fine.

    Right I agree.
    The last amount of Kloud and of Bunford
    Is the simplest and right solution!

    5.6.6 then runs absolutely stable and without problems
