NC and ACR process images from their raw form very differently. NC takes into account in-camera settings, such as curves, and generally produces an image that is sharper, contrastier, with more vivid colors, but slightly more noise than ACR. The ACR images take a little more work to achieve a similar result.

I opened the same image in each program, Capture and Photoshop.
Both have the same color management setup I have attached the
screenshot of both Adobe and Capture's color management settings.
The only difference is that the Adobe image must go through the
CameraRaw plugin. I set the CameraRaw settings to give me the
"Camera Default" settings, and I obtain the duller image. It's
almost like the Nikon software either "pre-edits" the image in some
way...or the adobe CameraRaw is doing something that I am not aware
of. Its very odd though, if I open the image in Paint Shop Pro
(yet a third program) I obtain the Nikon Capture results. This
again makes me think that its an adobe problem. Maybe someone
could look at my screenshot from the Adobe settings and CameraRaw
and make a suggestion.

Adobe Settings:

CameraRaw

Nikon Capture

Thanks,
Raymond

camera raw settings, vs the converter used in the Capture software.

one image was processed from NEF through Adobe CameraRAW pluging;
and the other - through Nikon Capture?
