My display Profile does not  load automatically on my Windows Operating system.

Microsoft has published a hotfix for the problem of the calibration curves unloading when the secure desktop launches in Vista. The fix is included in security update MS08-025. The calibration fix is only installed on Vista SP1 and later. If MS08-025 is installed on a non-SP1 system, the calibration fix is not installed. 

If this fix fails to correct the problem Windows Defender could be the culprit.  Try shutting off Windows Defender by following these steps:

  1. Navigate to Control Panel
  2. Double click on Windows Defender to open it
  3. Select Tools and then Options
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and uncheck the Use Windows Defender check box in the Administrator options section  
  5. Click on Save and then Close in the resulting Windows Defender information window
  6. Restart the the computer to turn off Windows Defender and check to see if the monitor profile loads automatically

The Windows Firewall could also be causing the system to lose the profile.  Use the following instructions to set exceptions for the CalibrationLoader.exe:

  1. Navigate to Control Panel
  2. Double click on Windows Firewall to open it
  3. If the firewall is on select Change Settings
  4. Click and then click on the Exception tab
  5. Select Add Program
  6. Select Browse
  7. Click on Computer and navigate to the CalibrationLoader.exe at: C:\Program Files(x86 for 64x systems)\XRite\ColorMunki (either Photo or Design)\Gamma
  8. Select CalibrationLoader.exe, Open, OK, OK to set the exception to the firewall
  9. Restart the PC to allow exceptions to start properly

Lastly make sure the ColorMunki Gamma Startup menu (Windows Start > All Programs > Startup). If this is not listed in the Startup folder users can choose to create a short-cut to the utility that can be launched manually.  

Finally, if all else fails, you can manually re-launch your calibration curve by going to Start > Startup and double-clicking the correct calibration loader for your profling application.
