"NX2 Not Running after installing Premiere Elements 7"
I have had both Photoshop Elements 7 and Capture NX2 operational on one of my laptops for a few months. Now after installing Premiere Elements 7 (yes I wrote that right - I switched subjects in this sentence), I can't get it (Capture NX2) to start. My next step is to reinstall it (Capture NX2). Does anyone know if there is some kind of conflict between Capture NX2 and Premiere Elements 7?
Oh, one other possible issue: It is possible that I installed a Windows Vista version of Premiere Elements 7 on a Windows XP Home machine (where the Capture NX2 resides). I didn't even expect a Vista version would run on an XP home machine, so because it did, I assumed that the software was bilingual. Nothing else has been affected by the PE7.

When you installed PE7-for-Vista on Windows XP, Windows Vista DLLs could replace Windows XP versions of the same name. Windows apps are usually backwards-compatible but not forwards. NX2 may use some of the WinXP APIs that are now Vista. My bet is that you'll need to reinstall/refresh WinXP! I hope I'm wrong.
