Quick note here:  the latest version of ICE now reads NEF.
Which version is that?  Do you perhaps have a link?

Thanks, I did not know it could read raw files, just tested on some D500 files and it worked very well. Considering that D500 was released after the latest version, perhaps there are some updates not reflected in the date displayed? The one I have is ver. 2.0.3.0 from 2015-02-24 and appears to be the latest one (Google is you friend). https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/product/computational-photography-applications/image-composite-editor/
It is self-updating so any download should get the latest one.

Second thought: I do have a 2017 version of Nikon Nef Codec installed, so may be that is what is used for the raw conversion? In that case it should give results very close to the Nikon software.

Thanks. 

Installed the Codec on W7 and W10 machine, restarted  and it did recognize the NEF's.  The W10 works also very fast. I guess with the W7 there are more problems.
