A third method to add kontakt portable to your host is to put the hole Kontakt portable folder in your VST folder.

Not a very elegant solution, but it works.
(tested in Bitwig 2.2.3 -Live10 - S1 - Waveform - Reaper - Samplitude)

Thx for sharing.

I love Kontakt portable versions.
I use them since 5.7 versions and they are really great. THANKS !!!

What can I say? It's a beautiful moment in history to make music... at least from the tech point of view! Thanks

I fooled myself with library manager from the install version.
(and deleted my previous comment)

This manager is even better than 5.7.3 portable version.

Best Kontakt portable version so far (win10-x64)

this might be a stupid question but i have never installed portable, do i simply install this and everything works or do i need to find the original non version of Kontakt to replaced with this portable version??

thank you.

It's a portable release, so no - you don't need full Kontakt to work. Portable doesn't write any registry files, everything is inside portable folder and you can even use full & portable version side by side if you want to

Can't seem to run both versions in Cubase - its one or the other. Anyone know a fix?

Update - Solved. The fix is in the VST folder. Doh

1) If I want to start using portable instead of my native version is there any way of importing all my settings - libraries etc from the naive version to this portable version?

2) Also is kontakt portable equivalent to full kontakt or kontat player?

3) This doesn't seem to load Nict files. Any ideas?
  Member 20.06.2015 54
This version won't play locked or protected libraries.
  Resident 28.05.2012 462
Where's the kontakt.dll file? Usually can just replace the old .dll and it works. There's only three dlls in this pack though, 8 out/16 out/64 out. I always installed the portable over the real install and it worked fine.
  Member 20.06.2015 54
'This instrument belongs to a library that is currently not installed' getting this when I open any locked libraries....
  Member 5.04.2017 7
Also crashes/hangs if I try to load a second instrument (given it 20 minutes and it still doesn't stop spinning the wait circle, same behaviour in multiple hosts).

Back to 5.7.3 for now.

I am in windows 10, With 5.80 portable I need to setup the midi controller each time I launch the kontakt! even the kontakt size, I can't save my sitting!..any solution?
  Resident 22.01.2012 201
where can i find regular version and not this portable ssshhh? :/
  Member 15.11.2017 4
Thanks for this. Shows up as "Kontakt Player", but it does play some newer libraries that 5.7.3 wouldn't play. My installed libraries showed up in it as well. To install, I simply copied the included directories into the existing directories from the 5.7.3 install.
