Can't open NEF files


Recommended Posts

This has probably been answered somewhere in here, but I haven't the time to explore all the threads. Sorry, I'm new to paint.net and digital photography. I have several pictures in RAW or NEF format that I would like to make some adjustments to but get the following error message when I try to open them:

Application version: paint.net 4.2.8

 

System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The system cannot find the file specified

   at System.Diagnostics.Process.StartWithShellExecuteEx(ProcessStartInfo startInfo)

   at RAWFile.RAWFiletype.ExecuteCommand(String startDir, String batFile, String args)

   at RAWFile.RAWFiletype.LoadRAW(String file)

   at RAWFile.RAWFiletype.LoadImageByCopy(Stream input)

   at RAWFile.RAWFiletype.LoadImage(Stream input)

   at RAWFile.RAWFiletype.OnLoad(Stream input)

   at PaintDotNet.FileType.Load(Stream input) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 512

   at PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Eval[T1,TRet](Func`2 f, T1 arg1) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:line 158

 

I've installed the plug-in that at least allows me see the files listed, but that's as far as I can get.

What suggestions do you have?

@triton49, to help us id the problem plugin, open your C:\Program Files\paint.net\FileTypes directory and tell us which of these DLL files are present.

 

  • ImPNM.FileType.dll
  • RAWFile.dll
  • RawFileType.dll & dcraw.exe
  • RAWFile.dll, RAWFileLAB.exe and dcraw64.exe
  • ARWLOAD.dll

Have any of you tried installing the Nikon codec that I provided a link for above in this thread?
 

Since I have not seen a comment stating that "I installed the NEF codec and it didn't work",
I would assume that you have not done it.

I have the Nikon D3500 and it worked for me.

RAWFile.dll

I would assume that it was this one by the error message:

If they want to use a plugin they may want to consider this:

(It opens a variety of RAW formats)

 

The original download I made was the RAWFileLAB 1.050. That's the one that let me see the NEF files list but not let me open them. I just downloaded the RAW File Type (2018-06-14) and it seems to work. Thanks for your help. It's greatly appreciated.
