Nikon + Photoshop RAW problem!

Archived from groups: rec.photo.digital.slr-systems (More info?)

I can not figure how to solve this stupid problem that
has occurred here :( The problem is when I want to
open RAW file (.nef) I get some small gray window
with only white balance options to correct instead the
adobe camera raw dialog window with all the great
options that I need?

I have PictureProject installed but I work in Photoshop
or I did until this problem has occurred.
Thanks for help,
Tom

    You need to remove the Nikon NEF plugin, it takes precedence over the Adobe
    one.

    You've just installed the Nikon Capture software and it's put a horrid
    little file in your Photoshop plugins directory.

    Here's the path to investigate:

    Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only\File
    Formats

    I think the file was is called Nikon.8bi - something like that. Find
    it and move it out of that directory (there is an 'Old Plugins' you
    can put it into). Restart PS, and everything should be as it was
    again.

    Uninstall Nikon Capture. Then make sure you download the RAW plugin
    enhancement version 2.4 from Adobe's site.
