How do you deal with Kontakt referencing library locations on different machines?

Hey guys, hope you're all well.

When using libraries that required full Kontakt (i.e. those which don't appear in the Libraries tab), it is often quite painful when collaborating or working across multiple systems where libraries are installed in different locations.

It seems that each time a project is opened on a system where the libraries are located elsewhere, you must manually point Kontakt to the correct folder. This is repeated again when a project returns to the other collaborator. Of course this is even more troublesome across platforms.

It does seem a bit strange to me that Kontakt can't deal with this gracefully. e.g. in Reason, you may add folders to your search locations, and thus actual content can be located anywhere yet Reason will find everything based on relative paths.

I'm hoping that I've missed something, any thoughts?

Thanks! I'll give it a try soon :)
