What kind of plugin is it (Photoshop, Lightroom)? You do not normally install plugins by double clicking on them.

In your original question you say: “It stops and go back into LR with NO edit picture !!!!” That is why I wondered if your problem is with Photoshop or Lightroom. BTW: That plugin has nothing to do with Nik.

if you needed to keep using the NIK suite, you shouldn't have installed high sierra...

with the plugin, you need to copy the file into: Applications/Adobe Photoshop [Photoshop_version]/Plug-ins

Googling this, there seems to be a lot of yes and no comments. Some people are saying because Google Nik is 64 bit, it should be able to run. I've even read some saying it will run. Plus I've read that Apple is only phasing out the 32 bit support over 2 years, so not an immediate issue. And then I've read people saying it's 32 bit and definitely won't run. . .  

Yet John Nack said: November 17, 2010
All Nik plug-ins go 64-bit
Nik Software has updated their complete collection for 64-bit/CS5 compatibility.  Way to go, guys! "

Do you know that it's a High Sierra issue? Could it be something Adobe could fix for us—again? Of course I mean to keep El Cap running on something forever, but. . .

I'm not sure, but given how many changes there are under the hood with 10.13, it's not at all surprising that an app like Nik would no longer work.

Could you explain what you're talking about? If you're talking about Nik, it is a filter in PS and always has been. Are you saying PS in High Sierra recognizes the installed filters and has no problem with them? Do they run, do you know? CC 2017 a couple of them didn't run until Adobe did something to fix it.

I know that the Color Efex Pro 4 and Silver Efex Pro 2 work and are found in the filters. I am not sure about the others. My computer keeps crashing when I resize my images so I cannot test anthing else

That s*cks. They definitely are showing up, so it's just a question of whether they actually run or not. Thanks.

Problems with High Sierra update and NIK collection:

I use Photoshop CC Ver 19 the last version. Two things here:  

1. Updating Photoshop to the latest version. I copied my Google folder from the previous version, which contained the NIK apps & pasted it into the Plug-ins folder in the latest version, Adobe Photoshop CC 2018. This made the NIK collection work as before in my original MAC OS  

2. Updating the OS. Once I had run the MAC OS update to High Sierra, I discovered that NIK Collection no longer worked, as per the rest of the posts. However, I found that if I used the selective tools, drop down menu, as supplied with the NIK Collection, all the NIK collection then worked OK.  

One thing I noticed was that on the return from the NIK app when selected within the filters menu from within PS, it always crashed. This seemed to be due to the work being done partly in NIK and then finished in PS. However, if done from the selective tools menu using NIK’s own drop down menus, the app handed back to PS upon completion of the adjusted work, thus overcame the problem. I Have not tried it with LR. 
I have note tested everything yet.

Using the NIK selective tool solved this problem for me. Thanks!

Maybe staying away from High Sierra is a good idea for other reasons: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/11/macos-bug-lets-you-log-in-as-admin-with-no-pa...
