hi guys,

currently using a spyder2express for monitor calibration. just got a new desktop, having trouble convincing it to detect the calibration device in windows 7 (64 bit). calibration device is still detectable and working fine on my vista laptop.

i have googled for this problem, most people claim that colorvision is being stubborn (and being naturally profit-driven), and refuses to update its software for 64 bit environment. the only exception (ironically) is for spyder2express. so for this, you have to download spyder2express 2.3.6 from colorvision itself.

this should be found here:

http://support.datacolor.com/index.php?languageid=1&group=colorvision&_m=downloads&_a=view

is this the only solution? i know that installing the cd that came with my spyder2express definitely doesn't work, i've restarted the computer just to make sure everything's fine... and the device is detected but just refuses to install itself properly.

if you want to know why i'm asking this... i can't seem to download 2.3.6. it claims to be 100+ mb, but it always just kills itself halfway and leaves me with 200 kb, 2.3mb , 3.1mb files. talk about being crazy. wonder if it's just me or everyone experiences such a problem.

if anyone manages to download the full thing, it would be greatly appreciated if you could yousendit the file to me, just pm me for email address. thank you very much in advance. :)

yes, i gathered the idea that it was workable.

but i can't seem to get the silly file to download on this computer. might be my network connection, but itunes, etc is downloading fine with no interruptions. suspect is more likely to be the bloody datacolor website.

thanks for your pm :)

your problem is unable to download the drivers right?

i had problems making it run properly on my win 7 so i am not using it anymore. just adjusted the rgb values and gamma on my monitor as much as i can and compare to my prints.
