I have a plugin "Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0" that works just fine in CS5 32 bit version but I can't seem to make it work in the 64 bit version. After spending over an hour with the tech line. The answer I got was use the 32 bit version. Can anyone help me?

Looks like 3.0 is 32bit plug-in.

Nik Color Efex Pro 4.0 is 64-bit.

Looks like your options are run 3.0 in 32bit mode or upgrade you plug-in to 4.0 for 64-bit support.
