I just did this last week! If you open the DPT 20, be careful as you may cry when all the little mirrors fall out...

The driver at found at https://www.xrite.com/service-support/downloads/u/unified_32_and_64-bit_drivers_98_2000-xp_and_vista

You have to re-boot windows to start without requiring driver sign in:

Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings and click the Restart button. When your computer restarts you'll see a list of options. Press F7 on your keyboard to select Disable driver signature enforcement. Your computer will now restart and you'll be able to install unsigned drivers.

Go to Device Manager and look for the DTP 20 and install by pointing to the unzipped driver folder.

And this is REALLY important: Connect the DPT 20 via a USB hub and NOT directly to your computer or you may BSOD.

AND if you are really, really, luck it will all work--most of the time. I've had mine read some test targets and not others. It's making me think about another profiler. Does the Color Munki Photo work well? How many test patches?

It used to be that I needed to make profiles. Now a lot of papers have their own to download. Ditched my Espsons, and now running a Canon 4100.

Some computers' USB ports have enough power capability so a Powered USB Hub is not required.  Steve didn't need a Powered USB Hub

You should mention to easily get to Unsigned Driver Mode to hold the Shift Key down while clicking on the Power Icon , then click on Restart and it will take you to the Troubleshoot menu.
