    Hi People.

    This software is a general Kontakt SNPID debugger for Mac OSX El Capitan and later - and maybe earlier as well, I just haven't checked !

    The software allows you to create lists of your Kontakt libraries by name and SNPID number. It also, as from version 3.2, checks for duplicate SNPID numbers and lists any found.

    This new update, version 3.3, now checks for and proposes to correct SNPID numbers having a value of "000". Libraries that weren't appearing in Kontakt 5.8 and over, may just magically reappear :). You'll find more information in the Read Me file included in the download.

    Get SNPIDer V3.3 here :

    Get SNPIDer V3.4.1 here :

    Have fun.

    First of All, Thanks for this. Ive known about the old windows version for sometime now. I downloaded and installed but for whatever reason, Im not getting the file to save to my desktop after running the program. I put in my password and nothing happens. Im on High Sierra 10.13.6.

    Thanks again.

    Working Perfectly, High Sierra! Just placed it in Utility folder, authorized, and all is well!
    Thanks for this!

    That's not a lot of information to go on for de-bugging ! Does the software hang ? Do you have to force quit it ? Does it launch and immediately quit ? or launch, seem to do stuff and then quit/hang ? I don't have a High Sierra to hand but I'll see if I can install a virtual one and see what it does…

    OK. I installed a High Sierra in a virtual machine on my Mac, copied across my service center folder complete and ran my software several times, each time producing a new and different list. It worked as expected without a bug nor a crash and saving a list to my admittedly virtual desktop, each time. I have 244 libraries and the lists were produced each time in about 3 to 4 seconds.This is with the overhead of the virtual machine ! I can only conclude that the problem lies neither with the software, nor with High Sierra. Check out tzzsmk's post above. It appears that they too have High Sierra. So, as they suggested, a speed problem or a huge library, or, just another thought, maybe a corrupt file in your Service Center folder. You can always try the old binary trick of taking half the files out of your SC folder and see if it runs. If it does, there's something amiss amongst the files you took out. If it doesn't then swap the folder files for the ones you removed. If it STILL doesn't run, the problem is elsewhere. If it does, then start the process over again until you pin down what's crashing it.
    Maybe if I had a little more information, I could help you further, but be assured that High Sierra is NOT the problem, nor is it the software.

    Launch, seeming to do stuff and immediately quit after 1 - 2 secs. ... No List on Desktop
    MBP with El Capitan 10.11
    Tested with SNPIDer.app located in "Applications" and in "Utilities"

    Hey Fred! You are amazing mate! I'm so happy you are still developing this awesome utility. Very grateful and hope you can keep working on it to iron a few bugs out. I found version 1 a long time ago, and when I would run a report, a window would come up with an error of something that it couldn't parse. In this case, it would say "Ramfire.xml":

    "Can’t get text item 2 of "Rammfire.xml: ?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>". (-1728)". (Version 1 of SNPIDer)

    I could then remove those offending .XML files that stopped SNPIDer from completing the report, and then it would complete successfully and generate a file on my desktop. V3 of your program sadly doesn't produce any error window, and so when a report is run, it just silently quits with no txt file and no reference to what has caused this error. I hope you continue to develop this - it is the only utility we have on the mac that can produce such a report. Thanks for all your work and this awesome program. - It's very much appreciated.

    For Troubleshooting purposes:

    My offending XMLs:

    Traktors 12.xml
    Traktors 12 for Maschine.xml
    Traktor 2.xml
    Reflektor.xml
    Reflektor for Maschine.xml
    Rammfire.xml
    Rammfire for Maschine.xml

    Can confirm, version 3 completes its report when removed. And the app works anywhere on my machine (Desktop/Applications/Utility Folders)
    Mojave 10.14.6

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the praise :). They don't propose a blushing icon here, if not, I would have used it !
    Could you see your way to send me some/all of those offing Xmas, so I can take a look at what's upsetting SNPIDer ? Thanks.

    Could you program it in an easier way that if in an .xml file it doesn't find any line with <SNPID>, it would just ignore (skip) it and go on?
    I don't think it makes sense creating an ignore list, because this way you can never have a complete success.
