How to change an nVidia card's color profile programmatically

Posted on 2006-04-14
Last Modified: 2010-04-05
My application opens photos for editing, which are output to three different types of printers.

My users create 3 named color profiles for the nVidia card to get the correct color balance for the designated output printer (one of the three mentioned already)

I want my application to programmatically select the appropriate color profile already defined by the user.  

Is there an API or COM interface for the nVidia driver that would allow me to pass in the name of the color profile and have this become the active one?

    Thanks to pcsentinel for pointing me in the right direction.  What I had been looking for but was unable to find was the nVidia control panel API and he was able to point me to it.
