You cannot do this.
A Windows color profile only applies the 3DLUT color calibration part of the profile to color managed applications such as Adobe or similar content creation software. It does not apply the 3DLUT to the desktop or web browser or Netflix app or anything like that.
All that gets applied to non-color managed apps like your desktop, web browser, Netflix, etc is a 1DLUT which gets loaded into the vgct (video card gamma table), so it applies to all output. A 1DLUT is only capable of performing greyscale and gamma calibration. So it will get your greyscale range to 6500K temp and your gamma flat at 2.2 or whatever you like, but it's not capable of converting color spaces, so your color on desktop, web browser, Netflix app, etc will be way over-saturated in Vivid still.
What I would recommend is create your 3DLUT for madVR in Vivid like you were going to.
But then after that, set the mode to whatever color mode is closest to rec709 (I don't know what it's called, but you can measure to see which is most accurate). And create a Windows color profile for that mode, so at least you get accurate color temperature greyscale and accurate gamma.
Then I would actually use this remote control program I made which would let you easily switch between profile modes on your BenQ between Vivid and whatever. You could make a button on your phone/tablet or even just an icon on your desktop that switches when you click it. You could even set up madVR to automatically switch your BenQ to Vivid when it starts playing and back to the standard color mode when it's done playing.
I wont get into the specifics too much here, but just to give you can idea:
I tested my program with the BenQ LK970, but it should work with the HT9060 too.
You can see BenQ IP commands here:
Vivid mode for example is: "appmod=vivid" which you would send from my program.
You can post in the other thread if you need help understanding how to get this all working.
