What works

The next and cancel buttons on the installer.

What does not

The installer is stuck in a loop for Status: Installing the Native Instruments ISO driver.

Workarounds

What was not tested

There is a "kind of" workaround.  If you kill the process stuck in the installation loop you can use Native Access, but installing any sort of library will fail spectacularly.  This is probably due to the fact that the Native Instruments ISO Driver was not installed, either properly or at all.

So there really is no good workaround for this that I know of.

Additional Comments

I might look into trying to fix this myself, even if it means becoming a systems software engineer.

HowTo / Notes

Installing ISO based content

A lot of the larger content from Native like their Kontakt libraries come as ISO files. These ISOs will download fine but cannot be installed directly by Native Access because Wine cannot mount ISO files. As of recent Wine versions, Native Access doesn't crash after trying to mount the ISO but wine still cannot mount them. Also, the necessary content files have been hiddden so it's necessary to use the unhide mount option.

Prerequisites

  • None

Steps

  1. Under your user preferences, set your Downloads folder to something you can access or remember
  2. Let Native Access try to install your content
  3. Notice how it will download but fail with an error about mounting
  4. Create a directory for mounting the disk, e.g. mkdir <iso-file>.d or mkdir disk
  5. Navigate to the downloads folder and mount the directory using mount <iso-file> <mounting-dir> -t udf -o loop,ro,exec,unhide (root access might be necessary so use sudo as appropriate)
  6. Run the installer through wine.
    You might need to point it to a different target directory as it doesn't follow the Native Access configuration
  7. After install, press refresh in Native Access to let it detect and activate the new library
  8. Now the content should be available to you and its license activated
