ColorMunki Connected Before Software Installation

Before we move on to install the software, we will need to Uninstall this device from your systems Device Manager. The reason for this is that on a Windows based system, when a USB device (in this case the ColorMunki) is connected without the proper driver, the device is installed as an "Unknown Device". Once this happens it remains in this state unless we uninstall it.

To begin, Click the "Start" button in the lower left hand corner of your screen, then click on "Control Panel"

Now you need to look for the ColorMunki, it will have either a Red X or a Yellow Exclamation Point over it like in one of the images below. What can be difficult here is that it may appear under "X-Rite Devices", "Universal Serial Bus Controlers", or a Category labelled "Unknown Devices".
