I'm using Capture NX2 version 2.2 and wanting to work my D3s files on it. It seems an update is needed. Every time I open the program I receive a Nikon Message Center message re: the available update. I click to update, and every time, about 90% finished downloading, the message center reports: "Could not download software update. Please try again later."
I've tried this about 30 times, each time the same result. I'm on Mac 10.6.2. Any suggestions on how to get the update to work? Perhaps it's not tuned to work with recently updated Mac OS, but I'm guessing here.

I've had mixed luck with the Nikon Message Center. You could try manually downloading the NX2 2.2.3 Update yourself. I don't know which version of the MAC OS that number matches, but there are well known problems with NX2 on Snow Leopard.

Sometimes the Nikon updater works, sometimes it doesn't. I notice that on my system after Snow Leopard, several things don't work _exactly_ the way they used to or should. NX2 does not seem to be able to clean its cache files when directed to do so under SL; the files are still there. Used to work fine under Leopard 10.5.8.

I had previously updated to version 2.2.3 and Capture seemed to work with the exception of frequent crashes. Your mention of the cache may touch on my problem The crashes usually occur while using the Selection Brush. The spinning wheel of death" will show its ugly face and then Capture quits, taking me back to the desktop.
A few days ago, I developed a printing problem seemingly when printing from Capture NX but not Lightroom. I ended up uninstalling Capture and downloading a new version 2.2.2. I haven't upgraded this copy to version 2.2.3. I have decided to wait for the Snow Leopard compatible fix because I'm not now sure if my printing problem is hardware or software. If Nikon keeps to its schedule the fix should hopefully be soon.
Sorry I couldn't help with the update routine but wanted you to know I had success with the process on the Nikon site.
