Colour management with two screens - ColorVision Spyder2 x64 driver

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Dominic Payer, Nov 21, 2006.

  1. ColorVision have a 64 bit driver for their Spyder2 series. The driver is
    unsigned and will not work with x64 Vista, but the software will install.

    To download the driver, registration at is required and
    the serial numbers from the software disks supplied with the Spyder2 are
    required for installation.

    With two screens the software can calibrate both screens separately. The
    calibration window moves automatically to the selected screen.

    The following applies to my nVidia 7600GS PCI-E card. It should apply to any
    PCI-E graphics card, but may not apply to AGP graphics cards.

    At logon with XP x64 only one profile can be loaded, but after logon using
    ColorVision's ProfileChooser different profiles can be applied to each
    screen, provided the profiles have been created by the ColorVision software.
    The profiles are preserved if the screens are turned off by power management

    With Vista RC2 - x64 and x86 - separate profiles can be loaded for each
    screen at logon. The profiles are lost if the screens are turned off by
    power management. The profiles can be reapplied using the ColorVision
    ProfileChooser or logging off and back on again.

    When transferring profiles to x64 Vista, there is a possible source of error
    which will only apply to a few. If the graphics card has two DVI outputs,
    Vista always selects the DVI monitor as its default if both DVI and analogue
    monitors are connected, even if the DVI monitor is connected to the
    secondary output. In the colour management window the monitors are presented
    in the order primary output, secondary output which may not correspond to
    the monitor numbering.
