I tried that, still dose not work. Thinking PSE download or wait for a fix??????
This is a good example of not jumping in straight away every time there is an upgrade. I always leave it for while to let the dust settle down. I need an new computer anyway so will probably join the fray at LR4.1 or 4.2.
Thanks for the info, great work....butHi all,
Found this on the Adobe forum and works on my Windows 7 64bit machine. All the Nik stuff now works.

That's quite normal. PV2010 retains the existing settings. You can choose to upgrade photos to PV2012 when you want to reprocess them with the new sliders, or you can leave them with their current LR3 appearance.I just looked into this on my system and found that importing my LR3 catalog into LR4 had no impact on the history for the original RAW files edited in LR3. I also checked and the process shows as 2010 for each file.
I have PSE9 and tried to use the NIK plug ins for the first time and nothing works. No error messages just nothing happens. Question, can you use NIK plug ins on JPEG's I usually shoot Raw but have some older jpegs. I spent hours organizing my photos into my pictures and am ready to start uploading into lightroom 4. Did a small sample of three photos and tried using NIK plug ins but they don't work. Any suggestions?

Mmmmm, I've heard someone else report that too. I think it's because PV2012 with no adjustments is the default setting, so technically it has no adjustments, whereas PV2003 is not default and is therefore an adjustment.
To be honest, I'm really struggling to understand your concern. I get that you might want to update all previously un-edited images (which are at PV2010) to PV2012....which then brings them into line with every new image that you shoot and import into LR4, i.e. PV2012 and no adjustments. Assuming the next version of LR introduces yet another new PV, you can presumably go through the same process, i.e. which of my PV2012 images have I not changed, which are therefore OK to update to the next PV.
The point is:
a) Any un-edited PV2010 files which you update to PV2012 will be the same as any NEW files which you import from now on.
b) None of us know what changes will happen with LR5 and beyond, so I don't see the point in worrying about it.
