I have a dual monitor computer with a new Colormunki Photo. I've installed the latest version of the software and did a calibration. I love experimenting with stuff and after spending 2+ years reading this forum I decided that it was time to calibrate my TV. Since my dual monitor desktop has issues with colors between the 2 monitors I figured a calibration would fix it. It sure did and now my movies look alot richer on my TV. Anyway, so here's my issue.
I don't really plan to recalibrate my desktop very often. I really was hoping to install the software to do the calibration and then uninstall the software but leave the .ICM files. So I installed the software and did the calibration. I backed up the .ICM files and then uninstalled the software. I then had to manually load the .ICM files. However, after loading the .ICM file the screens don't look right. I then reinstalled the software and figured out that if the Colormunki Gamma shortcut doesn't load at startup the .ICM files don't appear to load and become active. Because of this I have to either leave the software installed and running or the monitors don't appear calibrated.
Anyone know how I can solve this dilemma? I believe I just need to figure out how to get the OS to load the .ICM file.
I do not have to use the software that comes with my Colormunki but I chose to use it because it was practically point and click. The information on calibrations is quite complex(I work at a nuclear power plant and I still don't understand everything after reading the forums).
My desktop machine uses Windows 7 x64 Ultimate with an Nvidia GTX 570 with the latest drivers.
