No libraries in Kontakt player 6

Apologies if this is a basic questions, but I couldn't find a thread with this problem, so here goes. Also, I tried posting it in the NI support forum, but that place is basically dead.

I just installed Kontakt 6 Player and tried installing one of the free libraries before going on with a third party library I have. But I can't see the installed libaries in Kontakt. In Native access it says everything's fine, but in Kontakt they're nowhere to be found - not even under "options" -> "Libraries.

I should say that I install all content on a seperate drive, and everything else is on the system drive - all internal, though.

I tried deleting all files in the "Service Center" folder, as that worked for someone with the same problems, but it didn't for me.

Any advice??

When opening Kontakt Player 6 I simply get nothing. No libraries to browse through, and when going into "options" and "Manage Libraries" there are no libraries to manage.

Checking things in Native Access just shows that everything should be installed correctly.

And yes, of course itd be easier with a bit od system info:

Intel Core i5, 3.40 GHz, 8GB RAM
Windows 7
Interface: Audient ID14

hmmm ... maybe Player does not allow some of these things i am thinking of .. but you should be able to Add Libraries ..

hopefully someone that has K6 player can chime in for you ..

Mikro Prism isn't a Kontakt library, it's a Reaktor instrument

are you serious! That would explain everything! So it was kind of a dumb question

But they really should label that more clearly. So I guess there are no free libraries with Kontakt Player? I'll then jump right into the third party library I have. Hope it works. Thanks for the clear-up

around 28 libraries, and I know there are more out there.

Also, the Reaktor player is well worth having, and finding
the reaktor user library of instruments and effects is
pretty easy, lot's of youtubes for when an instrument requires
some obscure button to be pushed for the sound to ignite.

This library has several useful search options.

But don't these all time out after 15 mins in Player?

NB: I see something called "factory selection" in my Native Access described as lighter version Kontakt Player instruments.

That's quite likely. The other Native Instruments demo
for 30 minutes. Reloading until a few paydays have stacked up
some cash, isn't all that painful, a pretty generous demo.
Cheers
