I have a macbook pro 2011 and x-rite colormunki. I have upgraded

Customer Question

I have a macbook pro 2011 and x-rite colormunki. I have upgraded the colormunki software for compatibility with Yosemite. My problem is this: when going through the screen calibration steps with the x-rite software, specifically the lightness and darkness control, the screen suddenly turns either bright green or bright magenta. The software thinks this is OK. I tried reloading the software twice and get the same results. Any suggestions
