I connected the camera to computer, but did not turn it on. I then open Lightroom and go to Tethered Capture, I turn on my camera and then start Tethered Capture. It has worked fine so far. I will try again in different order and see if mine works.
RLDubbya, This time I connected cable to USB port on camera and then to computer. Turned Camera on and the computer recognized the camera. Opened Lightroom. I clicked on file, went to tethered captured, clicked on tethered capture and clicked on start tethered capture. Everything working fine. Captures images from shutter button on camera and from clicking on button on the on screen window. Maybe just some glitch in the download of the update. Wish I could be more help.

Michael, basic idea is that you control your camera with your computer via software and USB cable, including setting shutter speed, aperture, focus, and releasing the shutter.
Have a run through the search engine here for various scenarios when this would prove to be useful.
Lightroom does not offer live-view previews - so, no focussing. Lightroom simply allows you to control exposure parameters and ingests immediately on clicking the shutter. Nikon Camera Control does do live view as do a few third party applications. Unlike NCC, few others are available for both Mac and Win. It is typical that the memory card in the camera is bypassed.
