Go to the LrC preference, External editing tab, Additional External Editor section and then click the Drop down section and see if Silver Efex Pro 2 is listed.

 

If not then follow the steps to add it to the External Editor list. Which can be found by doing a Google serach.

Silver FX is listed as a pre-search but then underneath it says application and beside that is True Grain And there is an option beside that to choose it or clear it. So what next?

You need to select an external editor in the preferences, and then save its settings as a new preset. Then you can add another editor, and do the same. Now you can use the 'Edit in' menu and select the editor you want to use by selecting the preset in the second block of submenus. That is how you can have multiple external editors. Most likely you did not save Silver FX as a preset.

So apparently something fouled up a external editor preset.

 

see  the following link to create/edit:

Alternatively, and thus from memory, you could reinstall the NIK software right over the existing and the install script will create the preset/plugins for you.

No, nothing fouled up. He almost certainly did not save Silver FX as a preset. People often make this mistake. They define an external editor but do not save it as a new preset. The result is that as soon as they install and use a new plugin, the external editor is gone from the second editor menu (becase that shows the last used secondary editor), and because there is no preset it also cannot be found in the second block of the menu.

I am not sure I understand what you are saying. If it is listed as a preset like shown in my screenshot, then all you need to do is select it in this menu. For example: if I want to edit an image in Tonality, then all I need to do is choose the Tonality submenu.

So edit that preset via the directions in the links provided so it points to the correct program.
