D7000 and August update

Question

Hello everyone fellow BYN users,

I have the Nikon D7000 and until the August update, every time I captured an image, the computer employed a similar duration of time making a dark calibration frame. Thus, each time I made a 30 second exposure, 60 seconds would pass before the image would be displayed. Last night, after a long interval of not dabbling in AP, I tried out my camera under the stars and each image I captured, now matter how short the duration, would result in an endless "busy" noise suppression ? and I would have to close the program althogether to get the "busy" to stop. Aborting the effort was not effective. 

Today I logged into O'Telescope to discover a new update had been made to BYN. I downloaded this and replaced my older version and it works fine during the day with my camera covered with just a cap and no lens attached. Now, when I go to "Image Center" I no longer have the longe exposure noise reduction busy indication-- a 30 sec. exposure only takes 30 seconds and it is ready for the next image capture. 

I had downloaded an app onto my windows laptop called Driver Reviver and I wonder if this is what caused the older version of BYN to not function properly. Has anyone here had a similar experience?

Long exposure noise reduction is a setting that you can change in the camera's menus.

If you had a lens on the camera when you got the endless "busy" indication, was the lens set to Manual Focus? If not, it could be that the camera was trying, unsuccessfully, trying to focus the lens and never taking the picture.

I'm sorry, but the August update has nothing to this with this.  The behavior you are describing is not a software behavior, it is a camera setting behavior. As suggested by astroman above, this is typical behavior of in-camera noise reduction.
