A new version of Nikon RAW Codec was released for downloading – Version 1.4.0. This new version enables to add support for Windows Vista SP1. This new version of Nikon RAW Codec is for users who shoot in the RAW photo format with Nikon cameras to view Nikon’s RAW .NEF files while using Windows Live Photo Gallery.
A hidden precious stone was discovered with this new release. It functions on PCs running on 64-bit versions of Windows Vista.
Advantage is taken by this version of Nikon’s RAW Codec by taking Windows Vista’s built in 32-bit emulation feature called WOW64. On installation you shall be able to import and view RAW images (.NEF files) off Nikon D40 into Windows Live Photo Gallery and view them clearly.
This is confirmed by me as I’ve got this new version installed on my Windows Vista 64-bit PC. In case you do shoot photos with a Nikon digital camera, use the RAW file format and run a 64-bit version of Windows Vista then do definitely give this version of the Nikon RAW Codec a try. It shall definitely give good results.
