I purchased your product… why is it running in “demo” mode?
Sounds like you haven’t activated your purchase through Native Instruments’ Service Center!
If you have Kontakt on your computer, Service Center should be there as well. Open it up and enter your product’s serial code to activate it.
If you can’t find your copy of Service Center, you can download it here.
Each download purchase will come with an associated Installation manual.
Please refer to the Installation instructions found in your download purchase email.
First, make sure you have the latest version of the Kontakt 5 (Player).
Kontakt error messages are common when a preset is loaded in an older version of Kontakt. If that does not fix the issue, please contact us at: email@example.com
Make sure your version of Connect is up-to-date.
After installing the latest version of Connect, try deleting any previously downloaded .rar or .zip files, then run your product installation again.
Simply paste your serial code into Connect, click ‘Download,’ then choose your Desktop as the install location.
You can then move your library folder(s) anywhere you’d like after the installation has completed.
Otherwise, please get in touch via our support form and we’ll send you manual download links. You will then be able to install the manually downloaded files with Connect v3.1.8 (there are no reported issues with Connect’s ability to unpack manually downloaded files).
Once you have downloaded all of the product .rar and .zip files manually, move the files to your Desktop and do the following:
Open Connect > Paste your product serial code > Hold the Shift key, then click on the red ‘Reset’ button.
When prompted, choose your Desktop as the install location.
Connect will then reset and look for the .rar and .zip archive files on your Desktop and unpack them into a product library folder. The library folder can then be moved anywhere you’d like before adding the library in Kontakt.
