    I had Nik Color.Efex.Pro.v3.110 working fine with Photoshop CS5 but
    now I have Photoshop CS6 (the CS6 Master Collection Suite) and Nik
    Color.Efex.Pro.v3 wont install.

    I’ll appreciate any help regarding this.
    Thanks in Advance,

    I would first note that NIK Color Efex Pro is currently at version v4.
    V3 might not be compatible with CS6. That doesn't mean you shouldn't
    try to install it.

    I have had similar issues with some NIK plugins particularly with NIK updates.
    First quit all of the programs you have the plugin installed in, CS5,
    CS6, Lightroom, &/or Aperture.

    When you run the installer. first run the "Uninstall" option. This will
    remove the plugin from where ever it is installed. Then restart the
    installer and choose "install". The NIK plugin is then reinstalled in
    all the appropriate CS, LR &/or Aperture locations. You will have to
    re-insert your serial number.

    If all is well, great! If not, this would be one of those times where I
    would call NIK support. They have always been helpful to me, and
    handheld me through the above procedure when I had similar issues to
    you in the past.

    Note #1: They don't have an "800" number. All contact times for
    US/Canadian calls are Monday to Friday, 08:30 AM to 05:00 PM (PST)
    Calls within Europe are Monday to Friday, 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM (CET)

    Note #2: These guys are located in SanDiego, and are somewhat geeky.
    Sometimes they will not be immediately available to take your call (the
    phone is answered by a receptionist) and they will call back. Always

    I have a feeling the worst they will tell you is you will need to
    upgrade to NIK Color Efex Pro 4.

    Thanks a lot for helping me, Savageduck.

    I tried everything without luck and I just downloaded the newest NIK
    Color Efex Pro 4 trial and it installed correctly in to the Photoshop
    Filters Plugin but I couldn’t try it because I got the” Trial already
    Expired ? :-( ... even when mine is a brand new PC with a fresh
    Windows 7 64bit clean installed….. So I’ll try to contact Nik people.

    Thanks again,
