For quite some time I have been using HDR Efex Pro for Lightroom (HEPL) as a standalone application on Windows 7. Today, I purchased the HDR Efex Pro 2 for lightroom (HEPL2) upgrade using my existing product key and installed it. During installation, the installer asked me to specify a host application. Since I don't intend to run the program as a plugin, I did not specify a host. The resulting executable, when double-clicked, starts a process, but does not launch application window.

I know that Nik says they no longer support a standalone mode for their plugins, but I have heard repeated claims by users that they have gotten HEPL2 to work as one. If someone knows the trick for Windows 7, please do tell!
