After installing FPV Pro, CodecPack necessary to show .NEF ?

Hello,

do I have to buy the Codec Pack after installing FPV Pro to watch previews of .NEF files in Windows Explorer ?

Thank you.

FastPictureViewer Professional ships with "raw" codecs bundled, including NEF, CR2, DNG and others, so there is no need to install the Codec Pack separately to enable thumbnail support in Windows Explorer.

The FastPictureViewer Codec Pack adds a number of formats on its own, beyond what get's bundled with the viewer product, and it's licensing is different so if you have several computers it makes sense to activate FPV Pro licenses on your editing workstation (and laptop, if you use one), and install the standalone Codec Pack on other computers, where you only view or organize the images.
