Just found this in the trouble shooting section of the manual for Spectraview.
[blockquote]Problem (˙ Windows): The ICC profile generated by SpectraView does not appear to be correctly installed and recognized in Windows.
This problem may occur especially when using a multi-monitor configuration. In some cases updating the video driver may fix this issue.
The profile can be manually assigned if necessary as follows:
1. In the Windows Display Properties control panel, select the Settings tab and click Advanced.
2. Select the Color Management tab on the Display Properties dialog.
3. Find the color profile generated by SpectraView and use Set As Default.
A more advanced control panel is available from Microsoft for Windows XP which is much more reliable for checking the assigned monitor profile. On the www.microsoft.com
website, search for “Color Control Panel Applet”.[/blockquote]
It appears as though I have this problem and that is how I loaded it. Once I update Spectraview I will see if it works. I just installed a Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 and I believe I have the latest drivers for that installed - though I'm not positive.
Bottom line - if you're going to go to all the trouble and expense, make sure the system is properly using the profile and you are not double profiling as pointed out by Paul. One little error and the whole thing is garbage (garbage in - garbage out) even with the best hardware in the world.
