Cannot open NEF files on Capture NX2
I recently downloaded the 60 day free trial of Capture NX2. I want to edit Nikon’s NEF Raw files but whenever I try to open an NEF file, Capture NX2 reports an error stating that it is not a valid file. I attempted opening by double clicking on file and trying to open from within Capture. However, this method fails to work too and I still end up unable to open any of the NEF files on Capture. I am using images shot using Nikon D5200 camera. I can’t think of any reason for these files to not open. Every other image type opens without a problem. As far as I know, my system has all the updated software installed, meets the recommended processor and speed requirements and also has some 4GB free space. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling this trial version and still this error persists. I am totally in the dark as to what could be causing an issue. I hope somebody here will be able to throw some light in th right direction. Thanks a ton for all the help offered.
