    Elements 13.1 will not open Nikon D3400 NEF file


      I am using Elements 13.1(20150130.m.66724) x64.  The Camera Raw plug-in is ver. It will not open the NEF files taken with my Nikon D3400.


      When trying to open an NEF file a box opens and directs me to an Adobe site, which states:



      Raw image filename  extension

      Minimum Camera Raw plug-in version required

      Minimum Lightroom CC version required

      Minimum Lightroom Classic CC version required

      Minimum Lightroom Perpetual version required





             1.0    2015.7         6.7


      Searching the Adobe site I found the following:


      Adobe application

      Shipped with Camera Raw plug-in version

      Compatible with Camera Raw
      plug-in through version

      Photoshop Elements 13





      If I understand this information, in Elements 13.1 the highest Camera Raw version is 9.0. When I need a version of Elements with a CR plugin ver 9.7.


      Is my understanding Correct?


      Is there a stand alone Camera Raw ver 9.7, which will handle the RAW file from the D3400?
