During the course of my reading I realised that I have to put my iProfiler CD into the drive and run the i1d3ccss.exe file from the command prompt.
this will generate the spectral sample files which can be found in \\Application data\color folder
So now I can take the CD out of the drive and put it away.
I then plugged in the Display Pro sensor into the USB port. The yellow bubble New Hardware found, blah blah appeared and went. No problem there.
Then I ran the HCFR software. Cool. I clicked on the New button on the toolbar. This dialog box appeared.
The curtplame guide says choose "DVD manual" from the drop down box so I did. Then clicked Next. This gives you the sensor select dialog box.
As you can see the Xrite i1 DisplayPro sensor appears in the drop down list. I didn't install any drivers for it remember. I clicked the Finish button. Then I went to the Measures menu and chose Sensor->Configure... and the Argyll Meter Property Page appears
Those .ccss files I generated above now appear in the Spectral Sample drop down box.
Now I'm not sure if I needed to choose any of those but I chose the first one on that list for my LCD TV. Then I clicked OK.
Then I went to the Advanced menu and selected Preferences.
I unchecked the Use measured colors box as shown. This was as per post #610.
Then in the Advanced tab I checked the Do not use luminance in delta E formula as shown below
I left everything else as it was on this tab and dialog box and clicked OK.
This gave me the following screen (note the Sensor box)
