In a thread a few lines below I described some problems I experienced with Capture NX2. I am now back to Capture 1.3 that came with my D300.

Looking for a cause I found this message on the Nikonwebsite:
Note that this software cannot run simultaneously with Nikon View, PictureProject or Camera Control Pro.

Would that also include Nikonview NX, if so, that may be the cause of my problems.
Anyone knows the answer (asked humbly)
Thanks

Thanks both. With NX 1.3 there is no problem (neither alone or with the other software).
NX2 will load, and when I close it down it will sometimes reopen and sometimes the hourglass comes on and quickly disappears, meaning NX2 will not open until I power off the pc and restart the pc. When I power off NX wants to inform MS about the error.
I use XP pro SP2 with all the updates, pentium 4 2.4G and 2G ram. Standard software (office, ...)

I put the question about the software because of the note on nikon uk.

Quite frustrating not being able to use the new software.

Stephan,

It sounds like something is missing in the NX2 install, and CNX2 cannot find its way to wherever it is going.

Have you tried the steps in the "Sticky" threads at the top of this subforum?

The only thing I might add is to go ahead and install XP SP3 first.

Sounds strange to me. I have no conflicts running and using Capture NX2, Camera Control Pro2 and View NX at the same time.

Thanks to all for the reply and advice. An update (hope my remarks point to the cause)
I have a German XP Pro, checked the installed software and only saw the net 2.0 sp1, and not the original net 2.0. Wanted to install the German version of .net 2.0 but got an error (incompatible programmes), so I deinstalled the SP1 version, installed German language version net 2.0 (appeared in the software list) and then installed the SP1 which appeared in the software list, but removed/deinstalled .net 2.0 (is this normal?)
View, Capture nX 1.3, Transfer did not want to start up after that, so I deinstalled the three of them and re-installed.
Question:
I always install the English versions of Nikonsoftware because most forums are English language ones.
The cc++ pack was installed with View (probably English - had no option to choose-so will a German XP and English cc++ give trouble.
I am reluctant to deinstall it, because that may cause my Nikon software to stop functioning like it did after deinstalling NET.

At the moment: ViewNX, Capture NX 1.3.3 and Transfer 1.1 are running (only tried them for a short period). Took me quite some time uninstalling and installing. I feel a bit uncomfortable to install NX2, since I do not know if the English cc++ pack will cause problems when upgrading to the sp1 version. In addition, after opening Software again, I saw three versions of NET listed (2.0, 2.0 SP1 and 3.5), but with DEU (German) behind them. So language plays a role. Now see if c++ is also language dependent.
Your advice is more than welcome.
