Yes, they are both software that affects the way the scanner 
operates.  They replace the Nikon software.  It is adequate but both 
Silverfast and Vuescan offer more scanning options and allow you to 
scan different ways for different films.  Silverfast is expensive, 
but I finally decided it's worth it.  I only want to scan all of 
these slides once so I want to do the best job I can the first 
time.  If you Google Vuescan and Silverfast, you will find many 
reviews of both of them.  You can also download trials for free to 
try them out.

Good luck!
