Hi, I'm a first time user of Argyll trying to create an ICC profile. Charts created fine, but when I go to scan, Argyll doesn't recognize my i1Pro2. What am I doing wrong? Driver missing?

UPDATE: I just noticed that The i1Pro is installed as an "X-Rite Device" in Device Manager instead of an HID. Do I need to uninstall i1 Profiler?

Yes, the problem is that Argyll installs its own driver, although you can use Device Manager to swap between the drivers if you want to use the X Rite software. Had the same problem with my i1Studio, so I made the decision to get rid of the X-Rite software and just use ArgyllCMS
Using Argyll drivers with existing OEM drivers:

If you currently have applications other than Argyll accessing your USB connected instrument, then you will have to manually install the Argyll driver, and then switch back and forth between the Argyll and other drivers if you want to switch between applications.
