Maybe someone here can fill in what I'm missing.
I downloaded the "trial" version of Nikon Capture NX, supposedly good for 30 days' use. Upon first opening the program, it asked for a product installation key. Hmmm.
I could find no instructions on the download site about where one obtains such a key, and I'm wondering why it would be required for a "trial" version anyway.
Any suggestions appreciated. I'm sure there's something obvious I'm overlooking.
I have not downloaded NX yet, so I can't give you an answer. But on another site:
They have a number of people that have been writing about their results with NX. On this site there are also comments and replies from a couple of Nikon technical people such as David Dentry(Gen Mgr-Tech Support-USA) and Micheal Rubin(I believe a director of softwear development Nikon USA). In the time I have been reading the list, if there are tech questions concerning equipment or softwear, one(and sometimes both) of these guys replies quickly. In otherwords, they make it a prctice to monitor the list and help answer question when they can.
You would have to sign on to read everything that gets posted. I have been a member for a couple of years and only get the daily digest version, but you get a lot of comments and replies from Nikon personel. It's free to join, and the main topic is Nikon. It is moderated and is very serious in the discussions. As expected the main topic right now is NX, and the comments are both good and bad.
