Use Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop

The trial license is tied to your computer, you can't just enter a new email and use it again.

If you like Capture NX2, u can consider to purchase the license. or move on to other photo editor/management like Photoshop CS5, Elements, Lightroom, Aperture & etc.

wmayeo is right. so if you want to install the trial version again, you need to remove the software from your PC's registry.

Try downloading and installing the latest version of View NX.

Thank you all for responding!

Unfortunately, my adobe trials have expired too...... I have been thinking of getting lightroom3 though but will it solve my problem?

Try downloading and installing the latest version of View NX.
Thanks for the suggestion, i just tried it but its still the same....

This should answer your question.

I have just tried and found out that View NX and NX2 cannot edit processed NEF file. They can only edit pre-processed NEF file. I have tried on processed file by both Capture NX and NX2.
View NX can edit jpeg file but NX2 cannot.

Trials all have a period for you to test, end of it, you got to say bye bye. Unless you want to everytime reformat your pc and install back the software. Super tedious...

Lightroom can ease your workflow. But I don't use Lightroom as it is not my preference. I use ACR for my RAW files workflow, so I can't fully comment on your question.

There are alternatives like UFRAW and GIMP for RAW files workflow, that is open source & totally free.
