Capture NX2 and Windows 8

A short update to let you all know that I upgraded my Windows 7 system yesterday to Windows 8 and Capture NX2 continues to work just fine! I’m using Capture NX2 2.3.0 with Color Efex Pro 3.0 as 64-bit applications. In Windows 8 – of course – they run as a (Windows 7) Desktop application, so not as a real Windows 8 app using the new Metro style, but that really doesn’t bother me. As long as I can continue to use CNX2 in Windows 8.

So, for everybody out there still wondering if CNX2 runs in Windows 8, it does!

    the latest versions of Capture NX2 v2.3.5 and ViewNX2 v2.6 will NOT install on Windows 8. You will get an install error #1185. I have posted a question to Nikon but no answer as of yet.

    I am interested in purchasing the latest version of Capture NX2 for Windows 8. I downloaded View NX2 for Windows 8 but it does not install. So I am wondering if Capture NX2 and View NX2 will run on Windows 8.

      Hi Art,

      I’m running CNX2 on a Windows 8 system, so I can confirm it works. Also the Nikon sites where you can download the 60-day CNX2 trial from (version 2.4.3 is the latest release), state that Windows 8 is an officially supported platform. Don’t know the error message you’re getting with installing View NX2, but since Windows 8 is an officially supported platform for these Nikon products, it should work.

      Good luck,
