Nikon d3s. I have had this camera for a couple of years, and camera raw has always worked. It is not working now.
There is a problem with ACR 8.3 RC installed on XP and maybe Vista where the plug-in becomes unavailable. What version of ACR are you running—do Help / About Plug-ins / Camera Raw (if it exists).
Have you used an older Nikon Transfer or Nikon View to transfer or view the NEFs? This will corrupt them so they won’t open in Adobe products.
If you would like others to check if the files are corrupted, upload one to somewhere like www.dropbox.com and post a public download link, here.
We believe we have now fixed the following issue with the Release Candidate version of Camera Raw 8.3, where the plug-in would not work properly under Windows XP. In particular, if you saw this message:
"Entry Point Not Found: The procedure entry point WakeAllConditionVariable could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll."
please download the new build of Camera Raw 8.3 RC from here:
If you check the version number of this build, it should be 220.127.116.11 (the early one that didn't work was 18.104.22.168). Build 123 should now work properly.
If you are running on a more recent version of Windows (e.g., Vista, Win 7, Win 8, etc.) or a Mac, you can safely ignore this message because the problem only affected ACR / DNG Converter when running under Windows XP.
