"New Computer NX2"


Westerville, US
          

I was wondering now to install NX2 on my new computer. I upgraded fron NX to NX2 and have a NX@ update CD. My question is what product key number do I use?

Thanks in advance

You would put in the NX2 key and then the software will ask you for the NX key to validate that you had an existing copy. I don't think you need to have NX installed. Make sure you have the entire 5 part key. When you click on Help/About Capture NX it will only display the 1st 4 sets of the key.

You'll want to have downloaded the most recent version from Nikon's website as the CDs never have the latest.

Hope this helps.

>My question is what product key number do I use?

You will need both keys, NX and NX2. Go to Nikon's website and download
the latest version of NX2, when it installs it will ask you for the NX2 key,
then the old NX key.

Are you guys sure about that? I've never owned NX, just NX2, and when I transferred to a new puter, I just put the NX2 key in.

Did you buy the upgrade package for NX2 of the full package? According to Nikon, you shouldn't be able to activate NX2 with an upgrade key. It would be a real money saver if you could use the upgrade key without 1st having the NX.

The upgrade key ONLY works under the following conditions:

You have NX installed and you unstall NX2.

You have uninstalled NX, and install NX2 and enter both the upgrade key and the NX key. If you did not own NX the upgrade key will not work. The package you download is still a full version, the only difference is the key.

You need both keys if you had NX and bought the upgrade to NX2, otherwise if NX2 was you first purchase, you only need enter that key.
