Nikon Capture NX2.3.0 is out ...

... and it seems to have fixed the incredibly frustrating problems I had been having with 2.2.8, at least on the 1st two images that I tried. Let's see if it keeps working.

Sorry to get everyone's hopes up, but 2.3 didn't fix the problem. I exercised the new version on a few images and it started to crash regularly again. See the thread dealing with the problem:

Loaded the new version. It doesn't crash on my Win 7 64 bit computer but then the other versions didn't either.

I believe I've posted this answer before, but worth repeating that although I've NEVER had problems with NX2, I have consistently had problems with the 'Nikon Message Centre'. The message centre is loaded by default when loading NX2, so it's worth uninstalling the Message Centre to see if that solves your problems.

By the way this new NX2 claims to be truly 64 bit at last so I'm looking forward to using it..

I have it running on my iMac with 10.6.8 and it is a true 64bit application. Nice.

Loaded it up last night and can confirm that on my Win7 64bit, it's WAY faster than before. 64bit users - you HAVE to have it...

Works definitely faster on 64bit Win 7. I have no problems with Captur NX, never had major problems.

Good day,
I've updated from NX2 2.2.8
My optional picture controls ~ landscape & portrait ~ are missing. Tried installing and it throws me a message that a same version exists. If I force it (continue installing), an error message '... \License_EN_OPC100.rtf was not found'.
I am running a 64-bit W7.
Any help please? Thank you.

Sorry, no help here. I had quit using NX2 because it was just too slow and frustrating. After I read a review that reported efficiency gains of up to 700% with certain actions, I reloaded NX2, and the downloaded the upgrade... It did say I had a more recent version loaded in, which I didn't but gave the OK to overwrite and all is good. This all on Win7 64Bit. I haven't used it yet except to confirm functionality, and will use it only for files that Lightroom might struggle with. Perhaps I'll try some recent portraits... t
