Hi. I'm still struggling with getting Nik's HDR program working in Lightroom. I'm using Win 7 64.

When I run LR as the administrator, it loads the HDR program properly (Export Pre-sets, etc.).

If this works why not use this method ????

However, when I run it is me (the normal user) I get an error message saying the external application failed.

Or shift right click LR and from the pop up select "run as administrator" or "Run as different user" selecting an administrator account

How can I make sure Lightroom has the proper authority to launch the HDR Pro package? I've only been able to work on this on the weekends, and waiting a week or more between Nik's software support responses is very frustrating...any help from this community will be appreciated!
