Reactivating Content Libraries Already Installed on an External Hard Drive
If you would like to relocate content already installed on an external hard drive (e.g. KONTAKT libraries), please follow the steps in this article.
The end-user license agreement (EULA) for Native Instruments products allows the simultaneous installation on two computers (three computers for all versions of MASCHINE and KOMPLETE), as long as only one installation is used at any given time.
If you want to reinstall products on the same computer they were installed on before, you can proceed as this will not affect the maximum permissible number of activated licenses.
