The DNG converter is not a raw plugin. It's a standalone program which is able to convert a whole folder of your NEF files to the DNG raw format that your Elements  12 can read and edit. First convert you NEFs, then open Elements 12 to work with the DNGs.

Thanks for that, before I had the last issue and had to reinstall, I could open straight to elements with from raw and thought a couple of years back I had installed a plugin that did it in the software?

What is the ACR plugin version in your Elements 12.?
Did you use the menu Help >> Update.
That should have installed the the 8.3 or 8.5 plugin needed for your camera (depending on your OS).

Check the installed ACR version in the menu Help >> About plugins.
