What is CalibrationAider?
CalibrationAider helps users realize the full potential of their computer display device. Use CalibrationAider to create a consistant, reproduceable viewing environment with an optimal viewing angle, screen resolution, and maximized range of colors. Ideal for digital photographers who need to set up a color-managed workflow. Displays built-in test patterns and allows the users to import their own images. New test patterns will be added in future versions. Includes a complete user guide and access to an online tutorial. The tutorial shows how to use the test patterns during monitor calibration and explores concepts important to digital image processing and color management in general.

The used cmd file
CalibrationAider works well with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have created an CalibrationAider.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin set CLASSPATH= [drive: CalibrationAider] cd [drive: CalibrationAider]\CalibrationAider java -jar CalibrationAider.jarI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for CalibrationAider with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Save the file and name it CalibrationAider.cmd or use the commandfile from the distribution. This file is copied to the CalibrationAider folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs.
In the file you can find the above command file (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 CalibrationAider icon: CalibrationAider-eCS.zip.
