645z Lightroom tether stopped working after newest LR Mac update

My 645z stopped tethering to my MacBook Pro after I updated Lightroom. It still works when connected to an Older iMac that has not been updated. I re-installed the simple plug-in for lightroom and can't figure it out. Is the simple Lightroom plug-in form Ricoh outdated?

On another note, is there anyway to find the original image transmitter 2 software to download? I need something to get this to tether.

I have been looking also for the Transmitter 2 software.

The only place I have found is to buy it on Amazon. : Pentax IMAGE TRANSMITTER 2 S-SW150A 38553 : Camera & Photo?tag=pentaxforums-20&

I use the video out to my monitor for shooting and manually transfer the card for the editing. It does work.

the following link should work, I guess for the adobe plugin:
PENTAX Tethered Capture Plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®(Simple Version) for Macintosh | RICOH IMAGING

and this for the image transmitter software:

Agree, It totally should work. I had been using the simple LR plugin. After the adobe update I downloaded it again and reinstalled several times. No luck. I suppose I could try it on another computer and see.

The link to image transfer 2 is only the update to the original image transmitter 2. Unless there’s another way to get it to work, we’d need the original to do that update. I’m just surprised that the original isn’t available for download and still only on disc for $200.
