"ViewNX2 will not work on my Mac" Wed 19-Jan-11 12:13 PM by ericbowles
I have downloaded and installed it twice (Mac version) and I still can't get it to work. It opens but if I try to change directories the spinning wheel starts and it never changes directory. I eventually have to force quit it. I'd like to try it out but so far my luck with Nikon software hasn't been very good.

Carys, I have a new 27in i-MAC and run all of the Nikon SW. I will admit that the Nikon SW runs better on my PC, but it does work on the i-MAC. The only reason that I have the i-MAC is for the display, which is great. I will tell you what the MAC people tell me. If the SW does not run properly, it is probably a HW problem with your MAC. I know, that does not make much sense, but that is what they say. Tom

I had trouble when I first installed View NX2 on my new MacBook Pro in October. After installing it a couple of times with no improvement, I went to the Nikon web-site (www.nikon.ca in my case) and sent them an email (nothing in the known issues or the FAQ applied to my symptoms).
After one round of Q&A emails, the guy called me on the phone and walked me through some things that only he (Nikon) would know and now I'm up-and-running fine. Excellent support. I even got a follow-up email from the same guy asking if things were okay.
Reading between the lines I think that Nikon don't have as bullet-proof software configuration testing as the majors like Adobe have and so for some situations their SW gets confused (in my case the first install was not cleanly erased by the re-installs and needed manual intervention).
