ViewNX 2 won't start when I connect my D3200

since the last update of my Win7 OS, ViewNX2 won't start automatically when I connect my D3200
When I connect the camera I hear a 'pling' and in My Computer there is an icon with D3200 as a name.
And when I click on that icon I can access the SDcard.
Starting ViewNX2 manually all is OK, but before the update it was launched automatically.
And I'd like this behaviour back again.

Is there a solution for this phenomenon?

best regards Pieter

    Don't use ViewNX2, but with Lightroom, you can set it to do that under preferences.
    Always learning.

    Can I configure Lightroom so that it uses the same directory al ViewNX2?

    All you need to do is make sure that ViewNX2 is setup to launch when a camera is connected. Unless you really need the features of Lightroom don't bother getting it.
    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    After you plug the camera in, right-click on the icon in "My Computer" and look for preferences or other options to automatically start NX2 when that device appears. You can also try re-installing View NX2.

    Follow these steps:

    Open AutoPlay by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type autoplay, and then click AutoPlay.

    To never see the AutoPlay dialog box, select Take no action next to the device or disc. To choose an action each time you plug in a device or insert a disc, select Ask me every time. To have a program open automatically each time, select the program.

    Click Save.

    You would need to make sure you camera is plugged in when you do this and associate NX2 with that device to launch automatically.

    I'm one that uses NX2 to download all my pictures, mainly because the pictures show up big in NX2 and I can go through them in a hurry choosing which ones I want and then transfer the keepers to LR.

    I can't get them to download automatically anymore, so I just click on Transfer in NX2 and the pictures download great.

    Re installation of NX2 didn't do the trick.
    I guess it has something to do with the device driver.
    Afterall that piece of software has to detect the camera and take apropriate action.
    But how do you refresh the device driver in W7?

    Did you try the auto play stuff I suggested above?
  • Newbie here -- don't mean to butt in but I'm having a similar problem with my D3100 as View NX2 will not find the camera to Transfer the pics over to computer. Win 7 finds them and so does Irfanview but NX2 won't. It used to work so good but I don't know what changed or happened to it. Any help would be appreciated on this. Is there a USB setting in the camera or is that on Win 7??
