All of a sudden NX2 has started to act weird. This morning I was trying to edit some images. I have certain settings files that I apply usually with no problem. However, today when I went to add my settings the batch process dialog box appeared, which it never has before. I tried several different settings files and the result was the same. At one point it listed two files to apply the batch process to when there was only one open. The other one was one I had just completed. If I go in and add each adjustment separately all is fine; just no settings file. I then saved a settings file using only one adjustment. When I tried to apply that setting file to a new image the batch process came up again. I closed down NX, I closed View. I rebooted the machine. Opened only NX. Still this weird behavior. My irritation level with Nikon software is rising fast. My last post in this forum was about how I had finally gotten some speed in NX2 using Tom's tutorial. Then I installed a new version of ViewNX and the speed disappeared. Following that post I uninstalled all Nikon software, uninstalled the .NET framework (all versions), uninstalled the C++ libraries. Then I reinstalled them all in the order of the tutorial and my speed improvement came back. I've added ViewNX and Transfer back. ViewNX crashes about every five minutes. I am lucky if I can track down one photo to edit before it crashes. Then it will be fine for about 20 minutes then crash and then crash again on start. Transfer is okay. And now Capture NX2 is wanting to run batches on its own. And the speed improvement has disappeared again. Extremely frustrated. I don't know where to go with this.
