The Nikon D5 was first supported by Camera Raw 9.5 and Lightroom 6.5 (or CC 2015.5 if you have the Cloud version).
Camera Raw is only used by Photoshop and Bridge.
Lightroom does not use Camera Raw. The features of Camera Raw are built into the core program code of Lightroom. So if you update to Lightroom 6.5 you have all the features and camera support of Camera Raw 9.5.
The latest version of Lightroom is 6.12 (or CC 2015.12).
So update Camera Raw to 9.12 for Photoshop and Bridge. Update Lightroom to 6.12 (or CC 2015.12) and you'll be able to open Raw files from the D5.
thanks for the quick answer and clarification!
I checked in Help - System and it says:
Version von Lightroom: CC 2015 
Lizenz: Creative Cloud
Betriebssystem: Mac OS 10
Version: 10.12 
So you are saying I should switch from "Light CC 2015" to "Lightroom 6"?
Not at all. You are still running on the initial installation of Lightroom CC 2015. You need to update to Lightroom CC 2015.10 .2. That update was released just yesterday. There have been a number of updates that have been released since the installation that you are currently running on your computer.
ok, thanks for the answer.
But how come Adobe Applications or LR doesnt tell me about any update? As you see I've deinstalled and installed again, so that's why I assumed downloading via Adobe Applications will give me the lates LR-version by default...
I'm downloading the manual installation dmg now, because I can't seem to update any other way...
thanks! will be back in 5min
But how come Adobe Applications or LR doesnt tell me about any update?
I have the same question myself. I've come to the conclusion that the update mechanism is flaky and not to be relied upon. I'm usually aware of updates way before the automated mechanism kicks in. It's wrong more than it's right for me.
ok now he doesn't let me install it because of non-administrator-rights?!
I created a plain text file, called "AdobeUpdaterAdminPrefs.dat", wrote
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
in it, put it in that folder but still the same error
man, this is starting to get really annoying.
No need to create one. The idea is NOT to have that file.
If it exists, delete it. That file suppresses updates.
well, that guide says otherwise.
Nevertheless I uninstalled Lightroom, deleted those files... Error still appears :/
but I didn't have "AdobeUpdaterAdminPrefs.dat" to begin with. Just "AdobeUpdaterPrefs.dat"
Don't want to get side-tracked but the guide says: "To disable access to updates for all users on a given machine, " If the file exists, updates are disabled.
Some users have found that file, disabled it and then updated successfully. Didin't work for you. Let's move on.
Something in Sierra is blocking your Lightroom updates.
Where are you up to now?
nothing... Lightroom is deinstalled. Update wont launch.
I feel like waiting a few months until the Application tool casually decides to push an update, so that non-computer-experts are able to use it.
Obviously I want to find a solution, but where is this heading? I just want to open Raws and not deleting cryptic files in some weird folders to be able to use my program (which I payed for) only to find out that it's still not working. I'm not good with this stuff!
Understood. This SHOULD simple. It should not require rustling around in obscure files in your operating system.
All I can suggest is
- running the Cleaner tool Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems
- Reboot your Mac
- Reinstall Lightroom
- Check for updates or install updates manually
what I also dont get:
why isn't the Application Installer here: Download Photoshop Lightroom
the most current version with every update integrated? Then at least that administrator problem would be fixed.
Anyway, I'm going to use my slower machine, because (amazingly) there is LRCC2015.7 installed by the ApplicationManager
Ok. Good luck.
alright, I installed Lightroom and just copied the lightroom 2015.7 folder from my old computer and overwrote it with that 2015 version. Messy but works.
