Nik 3 download update

Every time I start Nik (which ever open first) there is always that pop up window asking to download it.
Mac user here, how to get that thing turn off not to show again?

I get nothing of that sort. Can you post a screenshot of the popup?

I also do not get anything - this on Mac, Mojave, all updated.

Argh! it didn’t popup this morning, I’ll check later.
It just the white window with 2 options, later bottom left and upgrade bottom right.

here it come again, but got the snapshot.
wish there was a “no” as option with “later” and “install now”, this is annoying!!!

My usual approach in such a case is to try these steps until the issue is gone:

  • Install again from a new download, boot, see if fixed
  • Uninstall and reinstall, boot, see if fixed
  • Complete manual uninstall, boot
  • Back to top

Manual uninstall is a bit of a pain because Nik copies things all over the place. I’ve listed places where I found Nik stuff in other posts. Here’s one of them: Problem with Trial Nik DxO

What is your installed version of Nik?

The latest before the announcement of Nik 3.
I did click on later, but it shows again, then click update now but close the browser not to download Nik 3.
There must be a file to be open and replace 1 by 0 to cancel checking update, but I can’t see where.

Can you search for files that have been changed recently (set to 0 days) and check them? Settings files usually end with .plist. Search the Library folders:

  • /Users/xxx/Library (replace xxx by your account name)
  • /Library

The Import Button is missing from the bottom of the Recipes panel in Nik 3 Color Efex Pro.
