    sRGB is just a generic profile, although it refers to a number of subtle variations. Just run whatever calibration utility you would for the updated version. Nothing you wrote gives any real indication of what happened.

        Care to elaborate regarding lights? I may have misinterpreted you. Typically you get the best results working in low light, but it's not always practical. I prefer low light, because surroundings influence the way stuff will appear to you. It can also make your notebook screen appear dark and flat, due to being overpowered by things that reflect off of it. You can't do much about that, especially not if you're outside. You can shade it or bring a dark cloth if it's really important. For just general variations in indoor lighting, you're mostly okay. For photoshop I recommend disabling any auto-brightness features. Just calibrate/profile as you normally would and leave critical decisions for a more controlled environment whenever possible.

          i create several monitor profiles with different daylight and shade for my laptop
          can't switch with color munki software
          can i use windows color management to switch betweem them with using set as default and have "use Windows display calibration" enabled to load gamma correction?

            You should be able to do that, but you will want to test the results to ensure that they're in line with what you expected to see. I don't know all of the implementation details of both things, so I can't guarantee that they will be absolutely equivalent.

              I have been using a Lenovo W700ds laptop, which has a built in rite/pantone Huey color calibration for a couple of years now. Every couple of weeks it asks for you to perform a color calibration which I do religiously. I have never printed any of my images; just post them on my website, up until last...
