This has been interesting: Cannot install Capture NX2 (v 2.3.0) under OSX 10.8.2. "You do not have sufficient rights to install to the location you have selected. The installer will now quit."
(Edited to change version to 2.3.0 instead fo 2.3.5)
It's not "rights" it's "permissions" but that aside... 1) the software gives you no choice of where to install - it will only install on the root drive. 2) I've been a certified Mac consultant for 20 years now, and this has me stumped. a) repaired permissions; nope. b) altered permissions to 777 (everyone read/write); nope c) logged in as root: nope.
Same results on two different Macs.
Simply will not install.
So giving up on that (and because I'm trying to get live-view on my laptop for macro work) I tried their Camera control. At least that installed. But on neither machine is the camera recognized as connected.
I was finally able to get their little wifi unit to show up on my iPod, but that thing is basically useless.
OnOne Remote doesn't work with the D600; neither does the latest LightRoom.
I'm just looking to get a larger live image to do critical focusing.

You're looking at this as an OSX problem which it is not. The installable trial version of Capture NX2 is version 2.3.0. Version 2.3.5 is an upgrade and you can't install it unless 2.3.0 is installed and licensed. (not sure if it needs to be licensed for upgrade).
Thanks to everyone who said that version 2.3.5 is an update. I'm aware that 2.3.5 is an update and not the full version. I misspoke when I said that it was version 2.3.5. It is not. The downloadable demo from NikonUSA's site is version 2.3.0.
Version 2.3.0 is the version I cannot get to install, with the aforementioned errors. I apologize for the confusion, and have adjusted the OP to reflect the correct version.
Ah... I thought you had it there, but no joy... still the "not enough rights" message. I also tried running it from the root of the hard drive; and the applications folder. (And, as noted above, I've logged in as root, changed permissions on "everyone" to "read&write) and -still- get the message.)
Has anyone here actually installed it fresh under Mountain Lion?
At this point, I'd normally give up, since I've installed literally hundreds of packages on this computer without any such difficulty, but as an ex-programmer, I'm intrigued.
Since this isn't a computer list, I'll skip posting the Console Log lines, but it appears to me that for some reason, the installer is using the wrong credentials (something other than 501) and thus puts up that "rights" message.
I could dig out another computer and see if I can install it there, and then drag the components over, but I suspect that since this is trial software, that won't work (for lack of whatever they are doing to time the trial.)
Enough energy has gone into this from everyone, and I appreciate it. It's not up to this list to debug my particular problem, which now does indeed seem to be mine alone.
Thanks to one and all. (More suggestions appreciated, but let's not worry about it. I've been using Lightroom and DxO and I'm completely happy. Nikon just won't get my $$$ (not that they don't have enough of it already!
I just checked my iMac - it seems that downloaded 2.3.0 and installed it without issue a few weeks ago - I have seven days left on the trial. I have had Mountain Lion for several months and it would have been the upto date version at the time of installation.
The reason for trying it was to get into better raw conversion, and to be able to correct vignetting and lens defects - Aperture just does not cut it with the D600, and to say skin rendition is lousy would put it mildly - the Aperture jpeg to raw transformation introduces images that could easily send subjects off to see their dermatologists.
I say without issue but I hated the way it looked and felt (big holes in the middle of the screen wherein you could see other stuff in other programs), and I haven't used it much. I now use Lightroom 4.3 which is absolutely superb for my purpose and, as far as I can tell, addresses all the issues I had with Aperture.
I have heard that CNX2 does a marginally better job in lightening shadows but I am not interested, I just did not like using it. I also suspect that both DXO (which I don't have) and LR are selling heavily and that is going back into the product (or perhaps should that be the other way around?), whilst CNX2 and Aperture have slipped off their respective owners' radar screens. This lack of development may even be the cause of your current issues.
The failure of CNX2 to load may just be a blessing in disguise
