But what you are doing seems to be re-inventing the wheel at least on Windows 7, 8 and 10 or I am completely missing something.

If you go to color management in control panel on Windows and tick the box on the display that says use color management (it defaults off) it will use the ICC profile for the monitor. That profile will exist so long as it has detected the monitor type and isn't using the generic. You will see the ICC profile in the box labelled Profiles associated to this device.

For most Joe Average they would only go looking for this setting if they are running dual monitors and want the two displays to have the exact some color output to the eye. It's really annoying when you have two monitors side by side on a dual monitor system with different shades. The whole point of the ICC is so that the computer color space looks exactly the same when displayed on different monitors.

So can I first ask is the color management turned on in your situation? If it is on then why don't you directly read the ICC profile which seems to be the exact thing you are trying to map from the the deviceramptable?

At least then you are down to each user will see every monitor the same, and now you need to adjust simply for each users eye which would carry from monitor to monitor if they are all running ICC or is there something I am missing?
In vino veritas
