What version of photoshop and windows are you using?
The camera raw filter is from the same camera raw plugin that opens your camera raw files, so there is no separate install for the camera raw filter.
And the camera raw filter is only in photoshop cc versions, not in photoshop cs6.
If you have photoshop cc then you need camera raw 9.12.1, which you can get through Help>Updates in photoshop.
If you have photoshop cs6, then camera raw 9.1.1 is the newest compatible camera raw plugin, but no camera raw filter in the filter menu.
If your using photoshop cs6 on windows xp or vista, then camera raw 8.3 is newest camera plugin you can use.
ACR Is a Plug-in in CS6. Starting in 2013 Photoshop CC ACR is a Plug-in and can Also be used as a Filter or Smart Filter. Yot should see ACR in abour plug-in and in you CS6 system info. In My CS6 system info I see it as both Plug-in and as a Filter but can not fina any Photoshop UI to use it as a filter. In CC there would be but now there is a newer version od ACR for all CC Photoshop versions. CC ACR features are crippled for CS6 users they only get new camera RAW support in ACR 9.1.1. For newer Camera CS6 users need to use the DNG Converter on their newer RAW files.
