It took 5 years but NIK IS DEAD
We all saw this coming from the start of the acquisition by Google, but it’s now official:

“The Nik Collection is free and compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 through 10.10; Windows Vista, 7, 8; and Adobe Photoshop through CC 2015.
We have no plans to update the Collection or add new features over time.”

If your copy of Nik is working now, it won't be for long due to OS changes and the resulting incompatibilities that are the nature of deadware. The good news is, other plug-in and imaging app developers are still going strong and coding for the future.

Well, it was dead under Google, but now that DXO owns NIK, they are planning a new release for sometime this year. We will see what the future brings.

If nothing else, it promises to be interesting.

Still using the collection with MAC Pro 10.10.5 and Photoshop CC 2017.1.1. Works like it always has worked.

Also with Window 10 (latest build) with Photoshop CS5. Also works fine.

Upgraded today to MAC 10.11.6 (El Capitan), with PS CC 19.1.1 (White Lion) and NIK Collection still works.
