I have a new Nikon D800, which apparently requires Camera Raw 7.1. having trouble installing it. it asked me to update Applications Manager which I did, then tried again, but keep getting a messgage the downlaod failed andi have to reinstall Application manager first before I can install camera raw 7.1. Help! thanks, Blake
There is an issue that remains unsolved for some people, but perhaps this KB article will help:
This is where one user downloaded a new AAM from:
These links were from a longer discussion about AAM problems:
Have you opened the file with the Nikon sw, View NX. In other words, have you proven that the file is not corrupt? Perhaps you can post a link to one of the nef's you cannot open, and let one of us try.
thanks for all your comments. wasn't able to excute ssprengel's instructions. I'm sure the file was not corrupt - I could export it from Lightroom as a PSD and then open it. I believe we really need Camera Raw 7.1 for a D8008 (and D4). I'll just wait for the final release of it and hope that works. and in the menatime, shoot TIF files. disapointed in Adobe on this one.
It used to be you could just unzip the Camera Raw.8bi file into the proper folder and manually run the CameraProfile.exe to install the camera profiles. Now Adobe has wrapped that entire process in another program that makes you login to Adobe and that new process has problems since it is new and more complex than the old one.
Have you tried to install the DNG Converter 6.7 RC1? Doing this would install the camera profiles (although not any new the lens profiles, I don’t think) and there is a way to determine which patch-payload file in the ZIP is the Camera Raw plugin, which can then be renamed and copied to the right place.
Ashutosh, many thnaks for solving my problem. for others that may be having it, there are three files that need to be unzipped.(I mistakenly just unzipped what looked like the main file) when you download the Camera Raw 7.1 installer, you will see three separate files. select all three, then unzip to desktop. you will then see one exe file, which you then open. now works fine for me.
I don't understand what you mean by select all three. There is only one zip file. Extracting that file gives you AdobePatchInstaller.exe (1.4kb), META-INF, and payloads. Selcting the .exe file results in the error msg. "download application mgr.
the three are:
adobe patch installer.exe
rather that select all three to open, I first just tried to open just the exe file, which did indeed give me the error message about application manager. when I selected all three together to open, I could download the patch without a problem.
Thanks for the reply. I think I was able to duplicate your procedure but I was still not able to install version 7.1. I called Adobe tech suppport this a.m. and found out why. Version 7.1 is not compatable with Photoshop Elements, which is what I am using! Bummer. I do have Lightroom 4 which I was informed already has V 7.1 so I will have to use that route to process the D800 NEF files. Hope this info helps someone else.
It has been Adobe’s policy that the final version of ACR will be compatible with the current version of Elements, but the release-candidate installer only allows installs on systems that have Photoshop (and maybe the non-Elements version of Premier) . It’s not because an ACR-RC won’t work with Elements—it will, but the installer is enforcing Adobe’s preference that only users that are serious/professional/sophisticated/knowledgeable-enough to buy Photoshop are to give feedback about the ACR beta. That leaves PSE users with new cameras out in the cold during the RC period, but that’s how things are. This policy has been around since before Lightroom, and perhaps Adobe should revise things to allow an ACR-RC to be installed if LR and PSE are both on a system.
That leaves PSE users with new cameras out in the cold during the RC period, but that’s how things are.
In terms of ACR yes...but Elements users can still download the DNG Converter RC and convert new camera files to DNG...so I wouldn't say that's out in the cold...just in a cool breeze.
