Freeware. Source code cannot be made available, sorry.


Windows 32-bit and 64-bit

Supported since the 20180220 nightly builds (1.4 and 2.0beta).


First, install Nikon’s Ti2 Control Windows software from the Nikon Healthcare’s Software Developer Toolkit site (registration required). Make sure it can control your microscope.

If you are running Micro-Manager release 2.0.0 or a 2.0 series nightly build dated 2022-03-02 or earlier, or any MM 1.4 (release or nightly), you probably need Ti2 Control 1.2.0.

If you are running anything newer, please try the latest Ti2 Control 2.x first.

Next, copy the file Ti2_Mic_Driver.dll into the Micro-Manager folder. The file is located at C:\Program Files\Nikon\Ti2-SDK\bin.

NikonTi2 should then appear in the Hardware Configuration Wizard.
