Instrument Communication Errors with Third-Party (non X-Rite) Software on Mac

What to check when you are using a Mac, and you are encountering error messages or can't select the iSis or iSisXL spectrophotometer, when using non X-Rite software, to make measurements or create ICC profiles.You may see device instrument communication errors within third party software (GMG or CGS would be two such popular programs), where either the device is not available to be selected, or when error messages are displayed from the third party software program.


You may require newer i1 drivers to be installed on the system (from either an i1Match 3.6.3 download, i1Diagnostics 2.5.1 download, or by downloading ProfileMaker 5.0.10 software). Many third party software programs may install an older device driver, causing errors in device communications.

To fix this problem, just copy EyeOne, EyeOneIOl, and EyeOne_iSis frameworks from the ProfileMaker (version 5.0.9 and newer) application folder and replace them in your third-party software application folder. The new frameworks can be obtained by downloading and installing the new version of i1Diagnostics 2.5.1 as well.  Be sure to relaunch your software after replacing the files.
