I installed NIK software suite and it has worked very well...UNTIL...it vanished from the list of filters. I am using PS-CC 64 bit. The NIK software is still in the plug-ins folder and it still launches as a stand alone app - even tho there's no way to open an image except thru PS-CC. I reinstalled NIK but it still doesn't show up in the filters drop down menu. Any ideas out there?

Double check that it shows in Help->System Info.
If not, then it isn't installed in the plugins folder, or you've disabled the folder (by changing the name).

The Nik/Google plugins have had some installer issues - so you might want to check google for an update.

Thanks, Chris. I haven't chatted with you since I BETA tested CS! I'll try your suggestions. The plugins folder is unchanged and NIK is still there. Thanks for the reply.

I also wonder if you're confusing the 32 bit and 64 bit plugin folders...

I looked in both and it's only in the 64 bit Plugins. So maybe the 32 bit version is launching? Here's the sys info.

Plug-ins that failed to load: NONE
Flash:
Mini Bridge
Adobe Exchange
Kuler
Installed TWAIN devices: NONE

OK, Chris...that was it. the 32 bit was launching. The 64 bit is running and the NIK suite is right where it should be! Oh, boy! Thanks...it's nice having your help!
