first of all: I am a enduser, no developer. But I can't get help at Pantone (which doesn't answer my questions anymore, probably they have no idea). So I hope this forum can help me.

I want to use Pantone Color Manager in Windows. Some days ago I still had Windows XP Home, but the Pantone support gave me the information that this is perhaps tricky. So I bought and installed (only because of Color Manager) Windows 7. And again, the program doesn't work. It hangs some seconds after opening the first splash screen (no exact error message, just Windows standard window). I read the log which I also paste in here. So it seems to be because of prism?

Do you know the prerequisites of prism? What in my machine is too old? How can I figure it out?

Or is there "another prism" that could work?

Kind regards!

I believe this is not the Prism library you are looking for. This library does not provide a prism.dll assembly file and as far as I know, it does not throw the error shown in the log.

In the data of the prism.dll file you posted it says it the file is copyright of X-Rite. Perhaps you can find support regarding this error in its website:

Hello Damian,

thank you for your fast reply. As I said I don't know much about dlls. What you say helps me in a way that it is perhaps really only Pantone that can help me. As I said I hace a CSS ticket open for a month with many questions and no answers. Perhaps I find support directly at X-Rite (Pantone is a part of X-Rite).
