Having a problem with my NX2 settings and Photo Mechanic.
PM told me to check I am using the NX2 settings as specified in the new PM Manual.
I am doing so could any one compare for me please.

I ingest NEF via PM and open into Capture NX2 from there.(latest versions.)
If I look at the ingested NEFs afterwards in Windows Photo Viewer I am out of the blue seeing a XMP file alongside each NEF.
My IPTC/XMP preferences in PM for NX2 are -

Read embedded XMP before IPTC
First Read embedded XMP
Second Read embedded IPTC

This is how I understood NX2 likes to see things and the XMP should not therefore be there? (when I say 'understood I mean it very loosely)

Have I missed something before going back to PM forum?

Thanks for looking.
