Question Major Issues with Spectraview under Mavericks...

Hello everyone,
So I just got a new computer, a 2009 Mac Pro. I put a brand new hard drive in, installed a fresh copy of Mavericks and proceeded to install the latest release of Spectraview after downloading and installing Java from Apple's website. It crashed on first boot, I was panicked and thought it might be the hardware but I did some diagnostics with Techtool Pro and everything passed with flying colours. So obviously I thought it was an issue with the OS being corrupted or something. I wiped my hard drive to be sure and installed a freshly downloaded copy of Mavericks. I installed Java, I also installed some CUDA drivers and a bunch of other stuff and then installed Spectraview. I did a first calibration and everything seemed fine and merry. I went into system preferences and ticked "Allow Spectraview to control my computer" under security and accessibility and did a reboot, just in case. I wanted to recalibrate a second time before installing my Adobe apps and there surprise! My NEC P221w was not detected by Spectraview! This had never, ever, ever happened to me before! In fact I had never had any issues with Spectraview until today. Is this due to the latest release you think? Or should I be worried about other software or hardware issues? I'd really appreciate your input, I'm really OCD about these things...

Here's my hardware:

Mac Pro 4,1 (2009)
Xeon 2,66GHz Quad Core
EVGA GTX 680 Mac Edition (2GB)
16 GB OWC RAM

Running: Mavericks 10.9.1
Spectraview 1.1.16.2

No problems on this end running 10.9 and SpectraView on a Macbook Pro Retina.

Re: Major Issues with Spectraview under Mavericks.

Hmm... Perhaps an issue related to my graphics card driver?
