    I have the same problem. Smile works on Windows 7 (x64), but can’t find the driver in Windows 8 (x64). (Even when I manually place the driver from Windows 7 in the same location in Windows 8, it still can’t find the driver.)

    I’m having a similar issue – except in my case the hardware is found, however the actual software will not launch.

    I’ve placed a support request and will let you know if it is resolved.

        All resolved.
        win 8 64.
        I have my os on the c: and most programs on the D: drive.
        Installing the Color Munki software on D did not appear to work and it had installed components in “program files” and “program files (x86)”

        A full uninstall, remove from registry and manually removed any remaining files.
        Then re-installed to “c:\program files (x86)” and all was well, though the shortcut on the start tile still pointed at the d: drive.
        Running from the actual program file worked without any troubles

      • David Crouchley says:

        To add to my last post the support was excellent once I got it, I put the original request on the 26th December and got help on the 24th Jan (assume support was down for a holiday break.

        • Brenda K. Hipsher says:

          Perhaps but we certainly are sorry for the long delay. I’m very pleased to hear that you did get the help in the end.

    Anyone above able to get your ColorMunki Smile to work on Windows 8 x64? I just bought mine today and I cannot get it to run.

  5. Adam Jedrzejewski says:

    I have Windows 8 64-bit and try to install driver for ColorMunki Smile.
    I can’t do it because of error: “File .INF isn’t digitally signed”.
    Is there anyone who could install ColorMunki on Windows 8 64-bit?
