I have Lightroom desktop 5.7 and Elements 14
I just picked up the G9X MK II and trying to open RAW files with no success. I tried downloading for updates for Lightroom and Camera Raw and I can't find any that will function.
So, Am I basically screwed because my software is more than 3 yrs old?
You need to upgrade to (purchase) Lightroom 6.9 or later.
Otherwise you can use the FREE Adobe DNG Converter to convert your RAWs to DNG, and then import the DNGs into Lightroom 5.7.
