Would someone know if a fix has been released for this?

I can't remember seeing anything new on the matter.

The latest software still won't create dual illuminant profiles if the files are bigger than about 24 Mpixels. I've just tested again (with current software). With a D8xx you have to set to DX crop in order to create smaller raw files that can be used to create dual-illuminant profiles.

Thanks Simon.

As it's over a year since they told me "This issue is addressed to development and we hope, that it will be solved in a future software update" I've emailed asking if their plans have advanced at all.

I'm not holding my breath. Xrite don't exactly have a reputation for fixing bugs.

Open the Preferences for Lightroom (I used version 6) File Handling. Set Compatibility to Camera RAW 4.6 and Later. Now create your DNG files. You should be golden. Just created a dual illuminant profile from two D800E NEFs converted to DNG with this setting.

When you look through the viewfinder do you see an object or do you see a picture?

Thanks Robin (and SoCal Dave for pointing out the same work-around).
