Sorry, I forgot to write that PrintFab always uses the entry "*DefaultColorSpace: RGB" so ColorMunki should already offer RGB profiling. This is currently fixed and cannot be changed.

Other drivers e.g. for the Lexmark X738 color laser printer use "*DefaultColorSpace: CMYK".

I received feedback from X-Rite that says ColorMunki Photo was designed to work with the printer driver, and it does work correctly generating a RGB profile with the Epson driver. It apparently will not work with PrintFab since it considers it is a CMYK printer. I don't understand why it is working with ColorMunki Photo for the Mac version and generates an RGB profile. The Mac version of ColorMunki Photo and the Mac version of PrintFab work together to generate an RGB profile, but the Windows version of both will only generate a CMYK profile. This means I can't use PrintFab with my Epson 3880 since I can't generate my printer profiles with ColorMunki Photo. I realize it will probably work with the more expensive profiling hardware, but I can't justify purchasing it just for PrintFab.

Thanks for you help.

X-rite is a very bad company, their support is a joke, and they took 3 years after merging with Gretagmacbeth that their white bases are different so they invented the XRGA. Were were they all these years milking money from users on their expensive hardware?

Back on topic you should print the target with Photoshop as zedonet suggested, measure and load it and generate profile.
