It’s possible for DisplayCAL to create a profile named after the display that was calibrated the last time DisplayCAL ran rather than being named after the display that was just calibrated.

Steps to Reproduce the Issue:

  1. Turn on computer.
  2. Plug in the ColorMunki Photo (spectrophotometer).
  3. Start DisplayCAL (last monitor calibrated was a Dell P2418D).
  4. Change the Display to “Web @ localhost”.
  5. Do the whitepoint/brightness part of the calibration.
  6. Stop the calibration.
  7. Exit DisplayCAL.
  8. Possibly restart the entire computer/disconnect and reconnect the ColorMunki.
  9. Make the secondary monitor (Asus VS229) the primary monitor using the Display window in the Windows Settings.
  10. Turn off the Dell P2418D, which used to be the primary monitor.
  11. Start DisplayCAL.
  12. Change the Display to “ASUS VS229”.
  13. Do a full normal calibration.

Expected Outcome:
The name of the profile’s folder & files should include “ASUS VS229”.

Actual Outcome:
The calibration folder and files have names that begin with “Web 2022-02-04 00-08 D6500 sRGB F-S XYZLUT+MTX”.

Potential Workaround:
Rename the profile’s folder and all the files inside as described in https://hub.displaycal.net/forums/topic/rename-a-profile/.
