I'm running Windows 10, DispCAL, ArgyllCMS, using a DTP94 sensor. With the previous versions of DispCAL (3.1.3) & ArgyllCMS (1.6.3) that I had installed, everything worked. Today I went to do a new calibration on my laptop. It said there is a new version of DispCAL (3.2.2) and then said there is a new version of ArgyllCMS (1.9.2). In each case, I accepted the update.

Now it does not run, does not find the sensor.
Doing File | Locate Argyll CMS executables... , it correctly finds Argyl_V1.9.2 / bin , but says of that folder that "No items match your search."

Win10 says there is no driver loaded for the DTP94. Pointing to the Argyl_V1.9.2 folder, I get a response:
Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device.
Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.
DTP94 (Argyll)
A problem was encountered while attempting to add the driver to the store.
I re-downloaded the V1.9.2 zip file (the 32-bit version because I saw that previous updates had been the 32-bit version), but, again it's no-go.

I went over to my desktop where I also have those same previous versions od DispCAL and Argyll installed. I rejected the updates. It launched just fine and had drivers for the DTP94.

Any idea what's going on?
