You can use HCFR to take a real time measurement of any test pattern you
wish to measure.
note though that while HCFR is a formidable tool for manual calibration
(and its verification), it has no notion of ICC color management.
To verify an ICC workflow, you need to use something different.
ArgyllCMS provides all necessary tools for the job. If you don't want to
use the command line, you can also use DisplayCAL ("verification" tab).
It should also be noted that far from all software is even color managed
to begin with (on a Windows system, actually only a comparatively tiny
fraction of 3rd party software implements color management in a sensible
and correctly working way, e.g. Gimp, Photoshop et al, Windows itself on
the other hand falls flat on its nose in that regard - the best you can
hope for when using the Photo viewer in Windows 10 for example is
"pseudo" color management where the display always seems to be assumed
to be sRGB based, regardless of actual assigned display profile).
See my guide here ("Setting up software" section) for instructions on
how to do this.
Sorry that this is a complementation and re-post of the former email, which
was improperly sent via a corporation mail address.
I recently calibrated 2 monitors of 2 PCs (both ordinary LCDs) each with an
X-rite i1 Display Pro. But I'm not sure if the software I used is producing
the correct color display. I tried an sRGB photo and opened them with
different methods, and they showed different results.
