    I'll try to get the Windows version to work when I have some time this weekend... The Python script is actually not that hard to understand.
    The used Python version 3.x vs 2.x might be the culprit. Or the Python flavor, there's more than one. You could try using Cygwin with it's build in Python, that way you have bash like in the tutorial as shell and the option for Python 2/3

    For building a gui you can use something like this: https://electronjs.org/
    It's fairly easy to build with and platform independent...

    Thanks D-One for your writeup. I've edited the script to also process .mxinst files as well. I had a bunch that were showing up under the "Maschine" icon and with this I was able to move them into their own, so cheers!

    I just tested it with both .nki and .nksn files and it works with these too, just by adding the file extensions to the script. :)

    Change the two lines in the script that look like:
    Code:
    if file_ext in (".mxgrp", ".mxsnd", ".nmsv", ".nrkt", ".mxinst"):
    to
    Code:
    if file_ext in (".mxgrp", ".mxsnd", ".mxinst", ".nmsv", ".nrkt", ".nki", ".nksn"):
    Project files are a little different so I'll have to change the script to handle them, but it should work as I've manually edited .mxprj files and it works. Let me take a look.

    Nah, it's a working application, I have been trying to find a way to port it to Mac but no luck so far, the only way that will happen is if a developer is willing to spend a couple hours adapting the code. Maybe if I release this windows version someone with some free time volunteers.

    Shot me a private message if you don't mind testing it.
