Where can I find the icons of the standalone programs, and where will the executables for Nik Collection be located after installation?

This information applies to version(s):  Nik Collection 5

For Windows users:

After installation, all Nik Collection plugins are available in the Start menu's "DxO Nik Collection" folder. This is the recommended way to launch Nik Collection plugins as standalone applications. When using the Nik Collection software in this way, it is possible to create shortcuts on your taskbar by right-clicking plugins in the start menu.

In some cases, you might need to know the physical locations of .exe files. They are located in these folders:

  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\bin\Analog Efex Pro 3.exe
  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\bin\Color Efex Pro 5.exe
  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\Dfine 2\Dfine 2 (64-Bit)\Dfine 2.exe
  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\HDR Efex Pro 2\HDR Efex Pro 2 (64-Bit)\HDR Efex Pro 2.exe
  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\Sharpener Pro 3\Sharpener Pro 3 (64-Bit)\SHP3OS.exe OR
  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\Sharpener Pro 3\Sharpener Pro 3 (64-Bit)\SHP3RPS.exe
  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\bin\Silver Efex Pro 3.exe
  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\bin\Viveza 3.exe
  • C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection\Perspective Efex\Perspective Efex (64-Bit)

For macOS users:

All applications can be found in Launchpad and Finder in the program folder: /Applications/Nik Collection.
