    Yes, it does come with fx plugins as well.

    By the way, in the attached photo, are those installers considered as 'cracked', hence installing from that installer is perceived as illegal from Ni's perspective?

    Also, if I do continue to use all my komplete libraries, which causes can occur further as opposed to stop using them? At least those are legally purchased..

    No. Libraries, however they come, are just shared. Only Kontakt is cracked. Does it matter which side you are illegal on?
    I guess they do this .pkg installer thing so that it talks to Native Access. I don't know.
    Because you can use that library with legit or non-legit Kontakt, you see?
    I have already said this. I thought you would have been reading what I have written to you.
    Which you will, either in a legit Kontakt or a cracked Kontakt...
    Sorry, I don't understand the question. Why would you suddenly stop using them?

    You said about making decisions with my legit kontakt.. so I thought you meant stop using them and use all the komplete products in k'd kontakt instead?

    For those who use Native Access and don't want the list polluted with "demo"-entries do this:

    Install the library to a dummy location, say D:\audiodummy\ , then copy the library where you keep the "borrowed" libraries, then uninstall the library from the temporary location. Works for me.

    'It', not them. 'It' being legit Kontakt. The thing that plays the libraries.
    If you read those posts, or there may be better ones if you use the Search facility, you can see that people do use both legit and non-legit KONTAKT.
    But this I am not knowledgable about.
    After paying so much for Kontakt and the Komplete Library, most people feel justified in binning Kontakt and getting a cracked version so they can use other libraries.

    Member already sussed this, if you read.
    But your way is better than using another computer to unpack the libs, as he was going to do.

    Thanks for your reply as well. The problem wasn't really that. It was the fact that the installation made that specific library appear on the NI Access, hence registering infos under the registry, making me think that NI knows about the illegal downloads.

    Couldn't thank you enough for your help thus far.

    One more thing to ask, if I worry too much about this whole situation (which I do actually), would just buying the library perhaps help in whichever way? It was just these two libraries that I happened to mistakenly install, and it's not too much of a financial issue to just pay for it..

    Well yeah, buy it if you feel happier. But there will still be a log via NA that you had a library installed without its serial #.
    Maybe they'll see that you eventually buy it and forgive you! lol. Who knows.

    You're in no peril as @Smoove Grooves has pointed out several times.

    Again, do this: shut down NI access (or disable networking during this), install the library, make a copy then uninstall the library. This way it'll never ever get sent to NI and doesn't litter the registry, though Access only checks this on startup and manual refresh for updates. Even then it shows up as a demo which is fine, there's nothing wrong with having a demo.

    The K'd Kontakt doesn't do networking so you're good after that.

    To reiterate: you're safe, chill out and enjoy the samples.
