I wonder why none of them stick an integrated thermoelectric cooler into their photodiode packaging for easy mitigation of temperature induced drifts. I don't believe it adds too much to costs. Perhaps it is due to the added power draw as that might require the meter to have batteries.
I suspect it would add great cost, relative to everything else that makes up a colorimeter, and exceeding the power capabilities of USB would add even more cost, complexity and inconvenience, so it's no puzzle to me that no-one uses this approach. Maybe in the ultra high end exotic (think astronomical instruments).
You can load the calibrations direct from the CD or install .exe using oeminst.
All I can find on the supplied CD is colourmunkidisplaysetup.exe. I downloaded the latest version (released july 2014) and installed it last night, obvs HCFR won't run when that's running so I've disabled it and will run another calibration later. I see the drivers have been updated to a 2013 revision, my previous install dates from Oct 2012.
Hopefully this will help, otherwise I'll have to spunk another £100 on another CM display just to see if it's any different.

Well, you can install the X-Rite SW if that's what you really want to do, but you certainly don't need to do that just to make the CCSS calibration files available. Putting the CD in the computer and running oeminst is enough - it will extract the relevant files and save the resulting .ccss's to where ArgyllCMS and/or HCFR can find them.
