Hi Eric,

>An easy way to see what is running <....>

Thanks for this reminder of how Capture NX2 appears in our familiar Task Manager ... sometimes!

I'm going to sound awfully pedantic now, and I sincerely intend no disrespect to you in my following blurb ...

But my ol' tech-support instincts still drive me to give "universally unambiguous" answers, or else (in my case) to offer no answer at all - otherwise (in my humble experience) the well-intended but incomplete answer can back-fire and create even more confusion if it's applied (and Murphy's Law ensures it darn well will be applied) to a context that wasn't explicitly embraced in that not-quite perfect answer!! (Blame my 4 years as a one-time technical author!)

So, because I led us into this area of "running processes" and techie-tools, I feel duty bound to add a note or two extra to your reply, and I hope you'll forgive my cheek for doing so?!?!

>Open Capture NX2 <....> Then open Task Manager <....> Select the Processes tab under Task Manager and you will see <....> Capture NX2 *32 means you are running the 32 bit version of Capture NX2.

Yes, this is true ... provided that -

a. your installed copy of Capture NX2 is the 32-bit version, and
b. your version of Windows is the 64-bit version

otherwise (and I'm very keen to be corrected if I'm wrong) if b. is not true (meaning that if your Windows is the 32-bit Windows) then Task Manager's Processes will show just "Capture NX 2", without the '*32' qualifier.

And, on behalf of any reader who (quite reasonably) doesn't know whether their Windows is the 32-bit Windows or the 64-bit Windows, and who similarly need NOT be expected to know in advance that Nikon could not feasibly have installed the 64-bit version of capture NX2 on their 32-bit machines ... we can add the following -

c. If our Windows is the 32-bit version of Windows, then we can only have had the 32-bit version of capture NX2 installed on our machine. (I'm sure this isn't obvious to everyone.)

and finally

d. when we look at our Task Manager | Processes list on our 32-bit Windows, we will again see just "Capture NX 2", without the '*32' qualifier.

and I include that last point d. to explain that whenever we do see just "Capture NX 2" alone, then the absence of that '*32' qualifier will not be a clue to the "bit-length" (32-bit or 64-bit) of our Windows version!

Sorry! I know! This is a long way from shutter speeds and ISOs ... and I promise to think twice in future before yielding to my irrepressible, mildly utopian yet proudly-touted techie-perfectionist instincts

Yours pedantically, Colin P.
