    Fall Creators Update Colour Calibration Issue

    Hello folks, first post on here.

    My problem is the Fall Creators Update seems to have an issue with colour calibration - I have quite an old calibration tool by modern standards which is a Pantone Huey Pro, but it's worked perfectly from Windows 7 until the FC Update. Now the ICC profile won't stick and the screen is very bright with a magenta cast. I see other people are having problems with colour calibration with this update.

    I've gone into Task Scheduler and tried disabling the Calibration Loader in 'Windows Colour System', then gone through the calibration procedure again as other forum posts have suggested, and all looks good until the moment comes to save the profile and exit the calibration procedure, then Windows reverts to the bright screen with magenta cast and loses the calibrated settings.

    I'm a photographer so I'll need to get this sorted otherwise I can't accurately edit my photos. I've previously rolled back Windows but within days the FC Update forcibly installs again. Very frustrating!

    Can anyone help me please?

    I'd first uninstall then reinstall the calibration software.

    Thanks Steve.

    Although that didn't fix it, I've been able to solve it by going to Colour Management in Control Panel, Advanced, Change System Defaults, Advanced, and ticking 'Use Windows display calibration'.
