Niels, it's actually a nice thing that Adobe provides after-the-release updates, or you'd never have had D90 support with Photoshop CS3.  But you're right, if the automatic features of the software don't work right, you have to work through manual installations and then things can get a bit geeky.  But you're a PC/Windows user - you have to be tough!  To use the Help - About Plug-in feature, in Photoshop click the Help menu, then the About Plug-in entry, then go over and click Camera Raw...This ...

So where is the other place I should look?

But Bridge still cannot show the NEF's.

Look for the way to rebuild/refresh the thumbnail cache in Bridge.  I'm not at my computer right now, so I can't tell you the specific buttons to push.

Do you still see two different versions of Camera Raw in the Help - About Plug-in list?  Or has that been resolved?

The problem was, that when I reinstalled my harddisk could I not find the software key for my CS3, so instead I installed my CS2 - and there were of course old Camera Raw.8bi files in the CS2 directory.

I have made a search for  Raw.8bi and a search for Camera Raw.8bi - all it finds is the mail notifying me of your last answer.
