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

From:caron fournier

Hi Gustave:
I used to install and train people on imagine software and a number of times when we got new versions we had to make sure that the software was compatible with the service pack that the version of windows they were running was on. Check with the Nikon rep as they should know what service pack of windows you should be using with the software. If they do not know then they are not the people that you want to have to deal with on a regular basis. I used to sell for MediaCybernetics Image Pro Plus software and it was able to run the camera and do image analysis. They have a good setup for help with their tech support line and the reps are all trained in house as well as having a net forum for users to share ideas. Their website is check it out.
Hope this helps.

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 analysis??
  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 issues?
  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.
