Re: Diglloyd's Quote About NX 2.2

Hi Thom,

But that's not the only installation hell. Consider this: you buy a
copy of Capture NX2 from Nikon USA, but you don't live in the US or
have moved to another country. You now try to download the update
from Nikon USA but now you get into the "must have valid US camera
serial number" problem. What the? And yes, this is a real problem.
I've already gotten one report from someone who's living overseas
with this exact problem, to which NikonUSA's tech support basically
said "you have a gray market camera and we can't help you." Gee,
thanks for the purchase of a US version of the software, but you're
out of luck now seems to be the message.

I live in France and did get NX2 from the US. I upgraded to NX2.2 just fine a couple days ago, but I did have to register my NX2 valid serial into the database first.

If adding a non US body serial into the database blocks upgrades of properly registered US software, then indeed this is crazy, but nothing Nikon couldn't fix...
