At least 80-95% of the time, PSE11 crashes when I try to use NIK's Color Efex Pro 2 (CEP2) as a plug-in. I purchased the following software: PSE 10 &11, Lr 5 and Nik Efex Pro Bundle.

I purchased a new laptop in order to run the software programs. I use it ONLY for post-processing and image file storage.I also have a 1TB external hard drive that I use for back up. The laptop is designed for gaming and has ample memory as well as up-to-date drivers, with more than enough processing speed to run the programs. ALL of the programs run great, with the exception of CEP2!!!

I tried correcting the problem by adding CEP2 to the list of programs for the NVIDIA driver as suggested by another PSE help forum, however, that has not fixed the problem!

Here is a link for the laptop's specs:
And the Manual:
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

What does the detailed crash report say?

Most of the crashes we've seen in the Nik plugins have been due to bugs in the Nik plugins.
