Z3100 in Win7: HP-APS question
« on: April 20, 2010, 03:26:48 pm »

I had problems with my HP-APS 3 years ago because it would not accept the serial code.  HP & X-Rite conferred, and a got a corrected code as well as a registry key to place in the right folder in XPPro.  It worked fine since then, even with upgrades to HP-APS, as well as a switch to Win7 64-bit.  

However, I had to do a clean install of Win7, as my previously-working version got corrupted.  I now can't find my original HP-APS CD, so what I did was copy the HP-APS folder from my previous Win7 drive and put it into the equivalent folder.  I also copied in the registry key, so that my Eye-1Display2 is recognized again.

I double-clicked on the HP-APS.exe icon, and it loaded in the demo mode.  When I opened the Register dialog I saw the srial number for the colorimeter, and I entered the serial code given to me 3 years ago by X-Rite to correct the original incorrect code.  However, after clicking OK, I got the same window back with a box added and checked:  Use Proxy Server.  Below was a space to enter Proxy Address, and one to enter Port.  I tried ignoring this, unchecking it and not unchecking it.  Either way I could not activate the HP-APS.

I know my f-stops, shutter speeds and ISO's.  But I don't have the slightest idea of what to enterin those spaces, and I also don't know where to find the information.

Anybody here have an idea?  I still have my old C: Drive with a mostly-functioning Win7, so if somebody knowledgeable reads this, I could probably find a way to copy the activation information from that drive to the current one.

Help!

Issue Solved!

It finally dawned on me to make all files and folders visible, and discovered another HP-APS folder.  I copied the registry key into that folder, and now my HP-APS works just fine!
