    I have been using ViewNX for the longest time and though loading times for preview of images was slow at times I was very happy with my ver. 1.3. The other day I updated to ver 1.5, and after the update everything was running much faster. Then today it refuses to open and I get a "The application ViewNX quit unexpectedly" even before it opens. The report is as follows:

    Process: ViewNX [362]
    Path: /Applications/Nikon Software/ViewNX/
    Version: 1.3.0 (
    Code Type: X86 (Native)
    Parent Process: launchd [71]

    Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
    Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000013cea744

    I tried all the suggestions I can find on the net to no avail, here is what I have done so far:

    1. repair permission, reset PRAM

    2. delete app through appcleaner, repair permission, re-installed

    3. same as #2 but re-installed ver 1.4

    4. same as #2 but re-installed ver 1.3

    5. delete app through appcleaner, remove all nikon files in /user/library/preferences, repair permission, re-installed ver 1.3

    6. same as #5 but instead of re-installing, used time machine to restore ver 1.3 from before ver 1.5 update

    All of these have failed, I have not installed anything new nor made any update to my computer.

    My mac's specs:

    MBP Santa Rosa 2.4
    4gb ram
    Mac os x 10.5.8
