I've found an easy workaround to install Optix in Vista, I've looked at the drivers in ToolCrib as it was suggested in X-Rite website, and yes, they work, and they do IMHO because just a couple of lines of text added to the inf file. As ToolCrib cannot be installed in Vista this is the easy way to make it work without having to install ToolCrib.
1.- Install Optix CD as usual before pluggin the device.
2.- Create a folder in your desktop or anywhere else and copy there this files
3.- Open XrUsb.inf with notepad and add this couple of lines before "sourcediskfiles", save.
4.- Plug the device, when the New Hardware found pops click cancel.
5.- Go to Device Administrator in the control panel. Right click on X-Rite DTP94 and "Update Controller" ---> "Look for software in my computer" ---> Choose in a list of controllers in the computer ---> Click next without marking any kind of hardware --> Use Disc --> Here choose the inf file you just modified in your folder.
6.- Click "install anyway" when the message pops and it's done.
7.- Remember to keep a backup of your folder with the drivers for futur use, or at least until release of official Vista ones.
As for Monaco Program everything works fine, profiles are created and automatically added to the new windows color panel in display properties.The only thing that have to be done manually is adding monacogamma to the startup folder because windows security don't allow the progam to do it automatically.
By the way, I always have problems with monacogamma, in XP and Vista too, if it's active I get a delta 7 error, if I keep it down my delta goes down to 0,80 so I always keep it down obiously but I would like to know why this happens. If anyone have a suggestion..., I use an Ati Radeon 900 AIW with Nec 2090UXI, nothing at all in startup folder.
Note that I use the Spanish version of Ultimate and maybe some of my own translations are not exact in the english version of Vista. I think that either the new X-rite will have to make an update of the Monaco Software and drivers for Vista or either we'll be moving towars gretag software adpated to support DTP94. Second option looks more realistic right now...doesn't it?
