RE: [Histonet] Nikon NIS-Elements - digital camera software problem; software others use??

From:"Tamara Franz-Odendaal"

you may want to check the specifications of your computer. I am about to
purchase hte system and have been told that some microchip data sets in
some PCs conflict with the NIS elements software - they will only
guarantee the software working with some PCs - i.e. some pentium 4's and
not all of them.  I suggest you call the imaging experts at Nikon to

I use NIS-Elements and have not experienced any of those problems. Ours
was installed earlier this year.

Subject: [Histonet] Nikon NIS-Elements - digital camera software
problem; software others use??

  Is anyone out there using a Nikon camera with NIS-elements (Advanced
Research) software for digital imaging capture and digital image
  Since buying the microscope system, I have been experiencing a
multitude of software problems.  In particular, during image 'capture',
the computer will crash - a blue screen with white script would pop up
and the computer subsequently will restart itself.  Upon trying to open
the software again, an error message would come up.  I would have to
restart the computer manually and open the software again.
  Nikon has come up with higher versions of the software and the updates
have been installed, but as of yet, the problem has not been fixed.  
  So my questions are as follows:
  Do you currently us NIS-Elements?  If so, have you experienced similar
  What image capturing software is the BEST both in terms of analysis
and image capture?  
  If I have to, I will eventually move on to a better system if this one
continues to give me problems.  Your answers and insight is much
appreciated.  Thank you in advance.
