I assume you opened and processed them in CNX2. Please, which version number, and 32-bit or 64-bit? (Mine is 32-bit.)
If 2.4.6, then that means that this version of CNX2 is sensitive to the particular hw/sw environment to a greater degree. Not unusual, but given Nikon's having said that they are going to pull support for CNX2, it means that those of us who discover such problems won't have a fix.
Other than being an older P4 system, there's nothing unusual about my computer. And, so far at least, other processing programs - LR5, Photo Ninja, ACDSee Pro 7, DxO Pro, and so on run just fine.
This raises an interesting point. For those us of who have been shooting RAW for a long time and have our basic edits done in non-destructive RAW format, we may risk losing our edits if our RAW converter software drops support for our old cameras. I never considered this.
I wonder if it's prudent to go back and create TIFF's from my old shots.
