I had a problem with two crashes today, with a just-purchased Xrite i1 pro 2 photo unit. I had upgraded to version 1.5.4 of the software yesterday. Then printed four test charts of 1600 patches each, let dry overnight. I was in basic mode(my first use of the new unit and software) and was measuring the first chart. I use Windows 7 Professional service pack 1 with an Intel Pentium 7 processor and 16 gb of ram(PC approximately 1 year old). It should be sufficient.
I measured in dual scan mode, and was on LINE 38 of 48, it crashed. Said something like "i1 profiler has stopped working, etc.". Forced me out of the software and measurement.
I double clicked my shortcut for i1 profiler software, went back in, loaded my chart, and started measuring, tried again. Got to line 7 or so, same thing, crashed on me.
At this point, I decided to uninstall all x rite from my PC, restarted, and installed the version of software shipped on the dvd, which is 1.5.0. Did not upgrade it.
I could never find an option to disable the ADC item(automatic display control ?) as mentioned in Xrite FAQ section.
I measured my test print in single scan mode this time, successfully, with version 1.5.0, of 48 lines, 1600 patches. I do have an icc profile and have saved it to external drive also.
My questions of the more experienced users:
1. Is there a way to save a measurement as you are doing it, say on line 7 of 48, and every so often, as user sees fit ? I could not find this ability.
2. What is ADC and where is it found and how to disable it, anyone know?
3. Could someone update me on what XDR is in this software, and how it affects the profiling of icc profiles?
I am hesitant to upgrade to 1.5.4 now in software. May stick with 1.5.0. Any thoughts on this?
As I said, I did succeed in getting a single scan icc profile of 1600 patches, will print a test photo print with this profile later today, on Canon ipf6400.
Thank you for any help,
