Measuring device issues

MeasureColor does not connect to Techkon Devices after installing on Windows 8 or 10

Note: This is no longer applicable for the current versions of MeasureColor and the Techkon device service. We keep this information for users of legacy version.

The Techkon software is built on the .NET framework 3.5 which is not installed by default on Windows 8 and 10The Techkon service may have to be installed manually on those OS.

  • Navigate to “C:Program Files (x86)MeasureColor 4OtherDriversTechkon” and double click on “TDService.exe”
  • A Windows dialog asks permission to enable .NET framework 3.5 which is required by the Techkon installer to run.
  • After your permission Windows will install the .NET 3.5 framework
  • Depending on your system a reboot might be needed.

After installing the service MC should connect to the devices.
