Nikon have published updated versions of the following programs, which are now compatible with Apple OS up to 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard):
Nikon Capture NX2 (2.2.4): download here (EN, ES).
Camera Control Pro 2 (2.7.1 updater): download here (EN, ES)
Nikon Transfer (1.5.2): download here (EN, ES)
Nikon View NX (1.5.2): download here (EN, ES)
NIK Color Efex Pro 3.0. More information.
Nikon WT-4 Setup Utility and Nikon Scan are not compatible with either OS 10.5 (Leopard) or 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
Nikon recommends the use of a third party program, like Vuescan, to replace Nikon Scan on these operating systems.
I have just installed the View NX 1.5.2 update for Windows, which includes support for Windows 7 and Vista 32/64-bits operating systems, although the program itself runs in 32-bits mode.
This version is supposed to run only on 32-bits Windows XP, but interestingly, it runs just fine on my XP Pro x64 system.
The update includes various bug fixes, one of which is supposed to fix the color cast problem (see photo below) which may occur when selecting a non-Nikon color profile in the program's color preferences.
Although this may be true for the majority of users, this is not the case on my system – XP Pro x64 with Prophoto RGB as system default – which, even with NKAdobe.icm set as the program's color profile, still shows weird colors in JPG previews.
However, at least with NEF previews the problem is almost completely gone.
If it is persistent on your system too, I suggest you switch your non-Nikon color profile to NKAdobe.icm and restart the program.
If that works, you may then want to go back to your default profile and restart the program again, which did the trick in my case - at least for NEF.
