Windows Color System Calibration Loader (specified module could not be found 0x8007007E) - Windows Task Scheduler


Background: Windows Color System Calibration Loader is used to automatically load Windows color profiles for your display once Windows is loaded. I'm planning to disable this so I can get Nvidia control panel to allow me to properly use Nvidia desktop color settings. Reason for that is so I can get the F.lux software to work properly when I take screenshots/snippets. Seems like this Calibration Loader doesn't work properly even after uninstalling F.lux. I am unable to use Windows Night Light as well so something is very wrong here.

Issue: Every time this task runs when I boot my computer, I get the following run result message shown in the Task Scheduler window: "The specified module could not be found. (0x8007007E)".

Running Windows 10 build 1909 and with Nvidia graphics drivers 445.87. Had F.lux installed but removed it temporarily.

I ran a System File Checker scan and it found no issues. Not too sure why Windows cannot find the Calibration Loader module and I'm not sure how to fix this issue.

Just to put a close to this and in case anyone else that might stumble upon this in the future...

I was able to resolve this issue after removing the Nvidia graphics drivers. Then I was able to make changes there and eventually fix Flux.
