i1Match Monitor calibration crashes or hangs on color patch but never moves forward.
On a very few monitors Eye-One Match crashes when it searches for support of automatic calibration (via SoftDDC interface). The workaround is to switch off the search for SoftDDC support: On Mac OS X:
1. Hold the "CONTROL" key and click on the Eye-One Match program icon. 2. In the pull-down menu, select "'Show Package Contents." 3. Navigate to "Contents/Mac OS/Config." 4. Double-click on the Config file to open in TextEdit. 5. Add the following line (without the quotes): "SkipSoftDDC=1"
1. Open the file "Config" within the Eye-One Match program folder with Notepad or Wordpad. 2. Add the following line (without quotes): "SkipSoftDDC=1" directly below the other text. Save and close. *Do not use the Save As function or this will corrupt the Config file and render it unusable.
