Issues with NIK and Photoshop? - here is an answe from NIK

I know that many of you use NIK plugins with Lightroom and Photoshop and today may have discovered that they are no longer working or may even be missing from your list of plugins.

The Web is flooded with people experiencing the same issues – it is caused by GooGle automatically updating your version of NIK Collection and causing a couple of DLL files to vanish.

You may also find that you can no longer automatically call up Photoshop directly from within Lightroom.


If you are experiencing problems then below is the fix from the Google NIK support team:


I tried it and it appears to work just fine..









Some users have reported plug-ins disappearing from their host software after the auto update, or have gotten an error pointing to a missing MSVCP110.dll file. If this sounds familiar, don’t fret!  We have a solution. 

1) Manually download version 1.105 of the Nik Collection by Google to your computer. Either click the download link in your original Nik Collection purchase email, or download the free trial from
2) Make sure that all host applications are closed. There’s no need to uninstall your previous version of the Nik Collection.
3) Re-install version 1.105 of the Nik Collection. 

If you’ve followed these steps and are still encountering errors updating the Nik Collection, please contact customer support by visiting , and clicking on the contact us tab in the upper right. Thanks for your patience -- we’re excited for you to try out the latest version of the collection!
