  • 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

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

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

            Advice on computers - what do I need
            by Elya
            Hi All,
            I maybe have a naive question but whoever I asked couldn't answer it, even sales reps at Apple. All I know about Mac is that it's RAM, speed, a chip made by Adobe and a much better operations system that won't crash. Which one would be the best for restoration? Do I really need a Mac?...

            buying Macbook or PC laptop?
            by neurignacio
            I have to buy a new laptop due to the early decease of my excellent Toshiba and I'm in the ethernal doubt of buying a dell (or similar laptop) or the new macbook generation.
            I want it smooth when I'm processing my pictures with photoshop at home and I don't do video editing or gaming. I'm married...
