ViewNX2 won't let me edit D7100 NEF files

I shot some NEF files with my D7100 recently, and I was shocked to discover that my ViewNX2 won't let me edit these files.  They are 14-bit, lossless compressed.  I did not install the ViewNX2 disk that came with the camera, because I kept ViewNX up-to-date by download.  My version is 2.7.4.  For these NEF files, it will display the metadata and the focus points, but it won't let me make any adjustments!

Do I need to install the ViewNX disc that came with the camera?
