If you haven't dowloaded Gamutvision, go to the Gamutvision download page before proceding. If you plan to install Gamutvision on a computer that will not be conected to the Internet during installation (or if you are behind a strong corporate firewall), download the Matlab runtime library, Imatest-lib.exe (8.5 MB), to the same folder as the Gamutvision installer file. This only needs to be done on the initial installation, not for updates. If Imatest-lib.exe is not in this folder during installation, the installer attempts to download it from the Internet.
You must have administrator priveleges on your computer during installation. This is rarely an issue, except on networked systems with strong security.
If you have a strong personal firewall, you may need to disable it before you install Gamutvision for the first time. You may re-enable it when the installation is complete. This should not be necessary on subsequent installations.
Open Windows Explorer and double-click on the Gamutvision installer file, Gamutvision-version.exe. (Version is the version number, 1.n.m. The Change Log contains the update history.) The version is displayed in the welcome window. Follow the instructions in the installation wizard (mostly clicking Next >). The Gamutvision installation requires approximately 34 MB (mostly the Matlab libraries).
When you install Gamutvision you agree to the terms of the Gamutvision license, which allows an individual user to install and use the software on (A) a maximum of three computers (for example, home, laptop, and office) used exclusively by a single individual, or (B) a single workstation used nonsimultaneously by multiple people, but not both. It is not a concurrent use license. The full text of the license can be found here.
Gamutvision can be run by clicking the Gamutvision icon on the Desktop, the Start menu, or in the Gamutvision installation folder (C:\Program files\Gamutvision in English language installations). Instructions for running Gamutvision are located in Gamutvision instructions. More Gamutvision documentation is located in the Gamutvision Documentation page.
|To run Gamutvision in Windows Vista, you'll need version 1.3.4 or higher.|
When you first run Gamutvision, it will be in evaluation mode, which allows up to 20 ICC profiles to be analyzed. Evaluation mode has all the capabilities of the registered version except that there is a watermark in the background of several of the plots.

After you've purchased Gamutvision you'll need to register it by clicking on the button in the Gamutvision window or by clicking on Help, Register. It's a good idea to check the download page or Change log for the latest version.
If you have a personal firewall, be sure to disable it before you register. You may re-enable it as soon as registration is complete. If you can't disable it, follow the instructions below, then continue with Offline registration.
Fill in the the Register Gamutvision window: Enter your name, company (if applicable), e-mail, and the password you received in the second Regsoft e-mail, then click on. If you forgot your password, click on . This opens a web page that enables you to recover your lost password via e-mail.

If your computer is offline, or if you are unable to connect because of a firewall that can't be disabled, the following box appears.
Click on. The box below appears with instructions for manual registration. Steps 2-4 can be performed on any computer connected to the internet.
