On startup the program annoys with unnecessary and wrong information about an alleged update which is in reality an upgrade. If you then click on update, you will be taken to the website to buy the update that is now an upgrade. What is this nonsense. That’s why I’m now blocking the Nik Collection with Little Snitch.
The way DXO tries to force the upgrade on you is more than annoying.
Translation from German
Nik Collection - Update available
New version available (Build 18.104.22.168)
Would you like to download this new version now?
Later - Install now
