Nikon ViewNX and Nikon Camera Control Pro having problems with Snow Leopard?

Update – Nikon’s official statement:

Q: Is Nikon software compatible with Mac OS X “Snow Leopard”?

A: Nikon generally announces compatibility information for new OS versions within 30 days of the OS release and until compatibility is announced we suggest not upgrading critical systems as we cannot guarantee operation. Initial testing of Nikon software with Apple’s new “Snow Leopard” Mac OS 10.6 indicates that there are incompatibilites with Nikon Capture NX 2, Nikon View NX and Nikon Scan, users of these applications should not upgrade their OS at this time. When more compatibility information is available it will be posted on the Nikon web site.

On Firday Apple started selling the latest version of their operating system Snow Leopard. I haven’t ordered mine yet, but a NR reader send me those screenshots – apparently there is some kind of a problem and a weird menu is displayed when ViewNX 1.4.0 and Camera Control Pro 2.6 run on Snow Leopard:


ViewNX 1.4.0 and Snow Leopard


Nikon Camera Control Pro 2.6 & Snow Leopard

Also some issues with the latest verions of Capture NX2.2.2″

“Capture NX2.2.2 will launch after installation, however the previews in the browser window will show no image and opening NEF files causes error messages, so we’re unable to open files with that. I deleted 2.2.2 and installed 2.2.0 which shows the previews nicely and opens files like it should.”

Anyone else experiencing similar problem? Any solutions?
