Just installed Nik Collection.  During the installation process, Nik showed me the apps that will be using the plug-ins.  Only Photoshop and Bridge appears in the choice, Lightroom does not appear.  Lightroom is not running during installation.  Tried to get the plug-ins thrue Lightroom and went to the Programs files/google/Nik/ but Lightroom does not show the plug-ins apps so I cannot select anything.

Anyone knows what is happening wrong ?

PC or Mac? It should work with PC still. Try reinstalling the Nik Collection. I think DxO now has the download, not Google.

DxO Photo Lab use the principe of Upoints but not exactly in the same way as Nick Soft did. However, the efficiency is higher. The difference is that DxO Photo Lab is a full RAW,DNG editing system that can modify TIFF, JPEG.
I personally use this soft since 10 years and the last release is an amazing version.

It's the PC version and already try reinstallation.  It like when I install, it does not recognize Lightroom's there...  If I try to add the plug-in thrue Lightroom, when I get to the file where the .exe are, Lightroom don't light up the .exe.

Just confirming, did you try using the plugins in Photoshop? Did they work. If so, then, must be some issue with Lightroom. The only thing I can think of trying is to uninstall Lightroom then reinstall. After that, try to install the Nik plugins again.

I have read several forum threads now where Lightroom does not appear in the NIK install interface.
It is possible that the Nik installer is 'looking' for Lightroom in its 'old' default  location:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom
but the 'new' location for Lightroom Classic is now:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom Classic CC

It may be necessary to let the NIK installer finish (which will add it to Photoshop) then add the Nik programs to the "Edit-In" presets manually with the method that is given at-
