Hello! I am attempting to use PhotoCal with Spyder (the real one) on Win XP Home. I DON'T get the crashes and hangs that some do, but I have still managed somehow to bollix things up thoroughly! The main symptom is that PhotoCal runs through its entire procedure seemingly flawlessly, and the results are, uh, really awful! Neutral grey values in PS are about CC30Y, files on screen in PS6.0.1 look about the same CC30Y different from Epson prints using known-good custom profiles, etc. Things on-screen are just plain yellow. Some observations: After uninstalling PhCal and reinstalling, recalibrating and rebooting, the "PhotoCal Profile" is installed in the correct directory, but does not show up in the "Settings" tab of the Control Panel. There I find some wierdly-named version of the sRGB profile (possibly created by Adobe Gamma?). Manually adding and selecting the "PC Profile" does NOT fix things. Yellow cast remains on-screen :-( Questions: Is this simply an XP compatibility problem, which will be fixed by an impending update? Is there some way to manually restore my monitor color settings to the _de novo_ state so as to be able to use Adobe Gamma or similar utility? Conversely, how do I disable Adobe Gamma entirely if necessary, and where do the video LUT's reside so I can also get rid of them should I have to? Sorry for all the many questions, but it is taking a bit of time to get up to speed on this Windows stuff... Thanks! Les - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
