    Installed NX2 (now I have de-installed it temporarily.

    Double click on NX2 icon and it opens, do some pp and close it
    Double click again and NX2 opens again.
    Then after a few times (sometimes 2nd, sometimes 4th time) I double click, the hourglass (waiting) appears and shortly after that disappears and the programme does not react anymore. (wants to send a message to MS)
    Not my normal behaviour to open and close a programme after each picture - was trying out
    XP pro
    2G Ram
    Pentium 4 2.4G
    Nikon transfer 1.03

    Can somebody explain what goes wrong and offer a solution.

    Now I am back to Capture 1.3

    Do all of the sub-windows within the program kind of turn white and look odd? I've had this happen ever since I started using NX on my computer. It's sporadic. I've found the problem happens very infrequently now on NX 2 though. It does the behavior sometimes during long operations (especially if I highlight a folder with hundreds of NEFs and then load my Copyright IPTC data) but it recovers.

    More often than not, if NX 2 is going to crash on me, it's when it's minimized... And I cannot maximize it.
