What Camera_Raw file is required to open a .NEF file from D5100 in PSE7?

Everything I read says its version 6.4, but when I attempt to run the 6.4 patch I get the message that it does not apply? Has Adobe prevented PSE7 from opening .NEF files from the D5100 (without conversion) in an effort to force paid upgrades to the current PSE version?


Thanks in advance!

    First of all, we are not Adobe emplyees here, just fellow users.


    You are correct in that ACR 6.4 or later is required to read the Nikon D5100 raw files.


    The last ACR that PSE 7 supports is ACR 5.5.


    Adobe's policy seems to have been for a long time that they only provide updates to the latest version.


    Very often the interface between the editor and ACR is changed between versions of PSE which means that Adobe would have to maintain multiple versions of the updates.


    Adobe does provide the free DNG converter for those who wish to continue to use old versions when they upgrade their camera. Some people actually prefer to do the conversion even if the camera is supported by the version of PSE that they have.

    Wild guess ... you do not have write permission to the folder where you want to write the DNG file
