  • It should work for W10 too.  Try uninstalling and reinstalling i1Profiler.  Are you using the latest version (v3.2.2)?
  • What the others say; probably irrecoverable, especially now you've opened it. I hope you have a backup. Data can be lost through hardware error, software error or user error. You can reduce the ...
  • Hi Morris, I didn't fully understand what you are suggesting. Are you saying that even with: (1) Windows Security (Defender as was) enabled and up to date
  • On two of my machines, if I checked for updates I got the "your device isn't quite ready" for a few days only.  After that, if I checked it just said "your system is up to date" until suddenly it ...
  • You mentioned that you have image backups: one option is to restore that, re-do the 2004 update and remove the old build via Windows cleanup.
  • That happened to me before.  I don't think I manually tried to remove the previous Windows build, but perhaps I did.  Anyway, I ended up with an empty Windows.old folder that I could find no way ...
  • The risk is that if you half remove the previous build, e.g. delete some of the contents of windows.old but not the the directory itself, then Windows may not try to delete it, and it may be left ...
  • I really don't recommend deleting windows.old.  That will just confuse Windows and I wonder if that might prevent a proper cleanup. Either use disk cleanup to get Windows to delete it or if you ...
  • Windows deletes the previous build after about 10 days (it used to be longer).  That's what's happened on three different machines on which 2004 got installed (after it was offered - I didn't ...
  • I'm assuming you're not using a monitor with internal Look Up Tables (LUTs) such as more up-range Dell, Benq, Eizo, NEC etc.  You can't use i1Profiler to calibrate those (unless it's a proprietary ...
  • Another slightly simpler way is to use wushowhide.diagcab. See https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/3073930/how-to-temporarily-prevent-a-driver-update-from-reinstalling-in-window . The download ...
  • My understanding (from helping to test and I saw comments and code), what happened in FF77 was a mistake.  It meant that setting gfx.color_management.mode to 1 stopped working because of a ...
  • Thanks for the link. From that:
  • Me too. Some times overridden by other law.  For example, a click-through licence that says "You agree that we may kill you" is not valid, even if you have accepted the licence terms. I'm no ...
  • Replied in Here's a way
    You can re-enable the W7 method, where you keep thumping F8 at the end of BIOS POST to get safe mode: (1) Run a command prompt as administrator (2) then: (2.1) bcdedit /set ...
  • Chris, are you a lawyer and qualified in copyright and related law in the UK and EU? The emphatic nature with which you express your views suggests you might not be, as no lawyer I ever met states ...
  • I'm sure many are not legit, but some can be legal resale of used licences.  It depends on the jurisdiction.  In many countries it is legal to sell on a used software license.  It's like selling a ...
  • Interesting (and yes I did watch your video, albeit at 1.25x speed!) I haven't encountered the issue (with my SW271) but I calibrate and verify only once - to panel native.  As you demonstrated, ...
  • Try clicking the library icon (looks like a side-by-side stack of books) or go to the menu (burger icon top right) and choose library, then History, and you should be able to clear all or some of ...
  • I can't remember now.  It's one of the options, I'm sure. It's the widest possible gamut.  To my mind there's no reason to calibrate to a specific standard like Adobe RGB or sRGB unless you are not ...
