Hi, Wondering if you heard that Nik got bought out from Google. DXO own's it and is going to come with a new Nik software. It will not be free anymore. Find out more: https://nikcollection.dxo.com/ you can email them. They will give you a link to the most current free updated before they start charging. The update works. I have tested it out and no problems so far. After all the problems with Nik. I can't wait to buy a license  version again.

Personally, I'd avoid High Sierra, if using older software like Nik, the new owners will no doubt fix all this soon, but the wonderful Nik collection has been left behind technology for a long time now :(Even Adobe hasn't been immune to the major changes to disk formatting that Apple introduced with this update... Me I will avoid it until I buy a new Machine and that's if I stay with Apple...

Yeah DXO look like they will take more care over this product, but it will come at a cost, some time down the road I'd budget for at least $99, possibly $149... But Apple Bless them, just how many times do we need to chuck everything out to keep using their products, how many of us now have perfectly good FireWire drives that are now for the scrapheap, now that Thunderbolt (or is that USB C) is the new kid on the block. I know nothing stays still in the tech game, but Apple we don't all have such spending power, and I'm not convinced that changing disk formats is a priority, especially when you dumped the idea of ZFS+ disk formatting in favour of HFS+ when OS X came out, ZFS+ had all the features that AFF has and more, but you didn't want o pay for a license - sorry I'm straying off topic, If you can backgrade to Sierra to use Nik, High Sierra is an upgrade too far for older sofware...
