The Nik Collection (32 and 64 bit Windows and Mac) is now gratis (starting 24 March 2016).
https://www.google.com/nikcollection/

As for me (Vista 32 bits) in Gimp 2.9.3 works well:

Dfine 2
Sharpener Pro 3
Viveza 2

PS. In my old system the installation failed - but I unpacked (450 Mb) it using 7-zip.

I've never used them, but I'm curious. What kind of processing you can do with those filters that you cannot do already with GIMP + G'MIC + FxFoundry ?
Any idea ?

Beside the fact that Nik Collection doesn't require host application as it also comes as standalone apps that can support GPU image rendering,
there is nothing they can do what GMIC already can, David. I agree with you. Although, I've been using Silver Efex B&W presets as I consider them
better than any other similar raw processing presets, e.g. Lightroom, therefore I did my raw images b&w conversion in Lightroom using Silver Efex presets.

Does the FxFoundry still exist, are the plugins updated, where can it be located, and will it work for Windows 64 Bit?

I had the same result.

A friend flickr mailed me this. Downloading it now. Cool that it appears to work in GIMP. Once downloaded, I'll try to get it to work with PSPI. Really interested in SilverFX Pro. Seen some fantastic interpretations from folk that used this preset over the years. :)

OK; for some reason, I could not get the plugin to work in GIMP or any non-PS program. Not sure why; placed the 32-bit plugin w/ executable in the proper subdirectory but they do not show up. Oh well. I still can use them in PS. :)

As a side note, I can run the programs individually as a self contained program. Sort of not ideal, but at least I don't have to open PS to used the various presets. Not sure is shellout would work though so not bothering with editing the shellout file to execute the presets. :)

When I added them to my PS folder, they did not show up in the GIMP, Diego. I guess I can do a direct path, but again, I will either run the executable directly, or run them in PS. :)
