I just read Mike's article and see that he recommends turning of color calibration in Win7.
How to accomplish this is not clear to me. Could you help with step by step?
I just did it in "personalize" then display and color management, use my settings box checked.
Did I miss something?
Thanks!

Appreciate all your help.
I didn't know that, but I must be blind, I don't see any 18 steps in the article that you linked above. Is it an article I should be reading? Where should I start?
Lucky me, I didn't encounter any problems migrating to win7!
Sorry!

(1) Right click on the desktop and select "Personalize".
(2) Click "Display".
(3) Click "Change Display Settings".
(4) Click the tiny "Advanced Settings": link in blue.
(5) Click the "Color Management" tab.
(6) Click the "Color Management" button: only button on this tab.
(7) Click the "Advanced Tab".
[8] Click "Change System Defaults".
(9) Click the "Advanced Tab".
(10) Uncheck "Use Windows Display Calibration".
(11) Close out all open dialogs.
(12) Right click on your "Spyder2Express" icon on the desktop.
(13) Select "Run As Administrator": just opening it WILL NOT
WORK.
(14) Go through the process of profiling your monitor.
(15) Repeat steps (1) through (9) above, then
(16) CHECK "Use Windows Display Calibration".
(17) Click "Start", "All Programs", and open "Startup".
(18) Right click on the Colorvision Startup and delete it.

It maybe necessary to do with Colorvision, but with X-Rite EZColor it isn't necessary. It just works fine.

I'm not convinced, yet  Shocked
Did you also follow Mike's suggestions to verify that your EZ profile is in place (read EZ profile name/software for Spyder name/software)? :-

When you're done, if you want to verify things, use Explorer and open c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\color.  Make sure there is a Spyder2Express.icm with today's date/time from your above calibration.  If so, you know the Spyder2Express software stored the .icm profile in the right place.  If you don't run the Spyder2Express as administrator, the profile will not go to the proper directory.  You may also want to go through steps (1) through (6) above to verify that the default profile is Spyder2Express.icm.

Well I am convinced. Profile is saved in a right directory and clicking in color management tab use my settings and EZColor makes your profile as default.
I only know that I had no problem upgrading to Win7 at all. Maybe my luck, but we will see as more folks update.
Thank you!

As long as they are not lulled into a false sense of security and do the checks as Mike suggests.

Total Newbie... please forgive if I transgress something.  Need Help.  Just received U2410.  Adobie Photoshop 7 Elements and Photoshop 7 each give error message: "The monitor profile 'DELL U2410' appears to be defective.  Please rerun your monitor calibration software <Ignore Profile> <Use Anyway>".  Dell tech support pleasant but not much help and referred me here.  I assume that there may be a problem with Adobie reading the Dell_U2410.icm file.  I have tried each of the colour management options available in Elements 7 Editor <edit menu> without success.  The issue seems confined to Adobie as Nikon Scan 4, Corel draw 14 suite, Corel Painter 3 do not seem to have a problem (that I can see).  At the moment I do not own any colour calibration hardware/software. Any help/assistance appreciated.  David

David,
Unfortunately, no one with such an experience has yet replied.
I would suggest, if you wish, to attach that profile to an email and send it to me. I should be able to see if is acceptable using a tool that I have here.
Profile file sizes are very small so there should be no problem sending teh attachment.

Hi David,

As time goes on, improvements??? happen. V7 of PS, is pretty old, it will not understand the later versions of icc profiles. Corel draw, b4 V7 had colour profiling turned off by default, so it doesn't care, I have no idea of the other software you mentioned, I just googled wrt cd.

There are tests out there, if you search for them. This is one of the penalties of upgrading too soon.

Best wishes,

Ray

David, if you want I'll share one of my U2410 profiles.
Dell's profile is corrupted somehow.

David's profile seems to be bad. It turned my screen green and I checked with two other people, and it turned theirs green also.
