I think all you need to do is set the profile as the default in the display properties settings.
Right click on your desktop (in an empty space) and go to properties. Then go to settings/advanced/color management. Here you should see an option to choose a profile and then set it as the default. Also be sure to hit "apply".
BTW, I just realized this works with XP - it it's Vista, my directlons may not be accurate.
Make sure you do a restart after hitting "apply".
There's a gamma/LUT loader that has to be activated on retart. This is what I had to do on a friend of mine's Dell WinXP system about a month ago using the Spyder2Pro.
Same problem here using vista 64. The profile loads then it switches to some crappy profile. If I then click on the startup profile for he spyder it loads correctly. But any screen saver, game etc will cause it to go back to the bad profile.
Whats the fix on this>??>
Unfortunately the fix is wait until Microsoft fixes this problem in Vista. Perhaps that fix will also require a software update from calibrator manufacturer too.
Here's a response I got from Colorvision on the Spyder2/Vista issue:
> We are assuming that after the monitor calibration is done the profile does not stick.
> This is a recognized Vista issue. This issue is not caused by the ColorVision application. It is an issue with the Vista OS. This association issue is affecting all color management companies within this arena, not only ColorVision. Our engineers are working with Microsoft to find a solution.
After going through the calibrating process at the very end I got this message, "sorry no calibration data was found in the profile sRGB color space profile for display "default monitor" Please select a different profile using Profile Chooser (1168)" does anyone know what it means? is my monitor calibrated or not????
