Summary – Since the release of the updated Nik Collection on 10/29 some users have encountered problems – with the collection as a whole, with the new addition Analog Efex Pro, and with the automatic update’s download system. Here’s the latest.
By now the auto-update should have installed
Version 18.104.22.168 on your system

The version on your computer
22.214.171.124 is for Win
As of yesterday Mac was stuck at 126.96.36.199
How do you know if your version is the latest?

Wanted to see when it auto-updated & with what
