Download the software install they refer to, onto your system somewhere, and then point oeminst at it.

If you install the software then plug in the probe windows should then grab drivers and "install" them. Basically just reads the inf file then drops the DLL into I forget where.

System or system 32 I think. Google it.

But first check the installation directory. Most installs these days place driver stores into the install directory. If they are there, and you don't want the software on your system then just copy the pertinent driver folder somewhere then uninstall.

Then point to the driver folder, wherever you decide to put it. I use a driver folder in the root, then place all my device drivers that aren't dependent on their own software into this folder.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention: The 3.2.2 version I downloaded off of Sourceforge apparently didn't have the correct version of the Argyll CMS drivers included, when I was trying to switch the drivers it found nothing suitable in there. I downloaded ArgyllCMS 1.7.0 from the main Argyll website though and the driver in that worked fine.

The same thing you would: no more updates.

That would take all the fun out of it though, wouldn't it.


Honestly, the program already does more than I'm capable of understanding and has provided me with endless hours of (generally pleasant) entertainment and a fabulous picture, first on my RPCRT and now on my (second) Sammy plasma. I don't want to see it become bloatware (which, frankly, more "demo" pictures would cause, especially since there is plenty of demo material available elsewhere [not that I would suggest anyone check my sig or anything ]). Unless colorspace targets change, bug fixes and support for new/better meters are the only "features" I think the program needs.
But, hey, I'm just a guy who's happy with the program as it is since it already does more than I'm ever going to need.

The demo frames are calibration specific but I do agree that more are not needed. I may added more specialty patterns in the future but those are small. What about a reporting feature? before/after PDF?

I certainly don't need it, since I'm not "reporting" to anyone but me and the "Reference measure" box works for that.

Okay, how about a "Check for updates" option?

I would love a reporting because for example i upload here the hcfr session and is huge. ..i suppose a report in pdf or in html (the 2nd will be great for an online calibration results site that we can upload and everyone can see what others achieved with a specific tv model).

I would like to see a new, modern theme or even an entire GUI overhaul and NO, I would not be doing it because I don't know how . Can't some simple improvement be done? For example, increasing the resolution of button icons/images, HCFR.exe icon itself, etc?

I would second the pull-down for Ted's patterns. Great disk to use with a great software product (HCFR)!

Sounds like folks use Ted's sequences so I will make them easier to set-up. However, they will still be "one at a time" unless I add multiple color checker slots - which I might do. I'll have a look at reporting, HTML is probably more useful and one can always print a PDF from that.

I don't know how to do GUI design/programming either, although I could figure it out, but it's probably too much effort for no benefit since we aren't trying to sell it. Updating the help file and including a couple of walk-throughs would be much more useful to new users.

This, last time I went to the trouble of manually inputting the coordinates it crashed.

A 9300K colour temp could help for people who want to calibrate the 9300K presets on their monitors.
