quote by jazzzz
Here is the fix, for anyone, anytime when you added the library (apparently successfully) in the earlier standalone version but it doesn't show up in your new app

1. check the SNPID number of the library, go to the folder of the library and open the nicnt file (with TextEdit or any similar program), you will find a line like this:
(in this case P74 was the ID code of Metropolis Ark 3)
2. go to your hard drive > Library > Application Support > Native Instruments > Service Center, and look for the .xml file with the name of that desired library, open it with TextEdit and you will see that the SNPID number there is 000 which indicates that Kontakt somehow hasn't been able to add it properly, or whatever... Change that three zeros with the ID code you found in the nicnt of that library.
During this process Kontakt app should not be opened!

By the way, I managed this new version to work installing it above the 5.6.8, didn't need to use the 5.6.5 installer. I used this 5.6.0 app though to add the library, however with the 5.6.5 app it does the same job, too.

For me on 10.10.5 this new Native Access app appears as a non-working app due to my system version, earlier than 10.11, but so far it hasn't bothered Kontakt to work.

And there was another issue with some old libraries from the era when those came out without nicnt files, so people need to create one or find it here in Audioz made by others.

Does this work on Mavericks 10.9.5?Some feedback please guys.
  Resident 27.09.2013 293
Last stable version for Mavericks is 5.6.5, solid with ALL my (our) libraries intact..
Again, beware the technology treadmill. Yes, some of the newer libraries won't work. But the superb libraries I (we) do have continue to perform without issue..

Wow, I can't believe it's finally here... thank you a trillion times
Kiss my ass? Suck my clit!
  Member 10.09.2015 56
the problem is, that you still cannot add new libraries. For example Output Analog Brass and Winds. Cannot be added via Kontakt 5.60 and not via 5.73 anyway
  Member 12.02.2014 4
How about if you still keep your 5.6.6 version as well ?
  Member 10.09.2015 56
you cannot add libraries in 5.6.6 either.
  Member 12.02.2014 4
How about the old .plist method?

Copy Kontakt to Kontakt folder /Application/Native Instruments/ Kontakt 5/

I managed to get Analog Brass and Winds, but Metropolis 3 and the new NI Electric Sunburst accepted in 5.6 but don't show up in 5.7.3
