    I have a ColorMunki Display colorimeter and a ColorMunki Photo spectrometer. I am trying to create a correction matrix for the colorimeter using dispcalgui. (I have several monitors to calibrate and am starting with one of the monitors to see how the process works.)

    I was previously able to use the ColorMunki Display with dispcalgui to calibrate the monitor without any problems. I then installed ColorMunki Photo (I used the X-Rite installation CD because it seemed that I could not get the spectrometer to be recognized at all until it was registered, and it was necessary to use the X-Rite installation process to do the registration.) Using only X-Rite software, I was able to use the ColorMunki Photo by itself.

    However, when I try to use the ColorMunki Photo for creating a correction matrix with dispcalgui, the spectrometer does not seem to be detected by the software. The X-Rite driver shows up in Windows Device Manager when the ColorMunki Photo is installed.

    I do not know whether this is a driver conflict problem vs a problem somewhere else in the system.

    Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
    dispcalgui 2.6.0.0-win32
    argyllcms 1.6.3-win64

    Attachment showing that the assigned driver is the X-Rite driver, and showing the dispcalgui for creating a correction matrix. When I try to select a device, the gui does not respond. The only valid choices are cancel or browse.

    Hi,

    for the Colormunki Photo spectrometer, you have to use the Argyll CMS driver, not the X-Rite one. Please select “Install Argyll CMS instrument drivers” in the “Tools” menu, and follow the instructions there.
