Thanks, Bob but yes I have both apps set to the same color profile. I have not calibrated my monitor as it is new and so much better than what I was using that even if it were off a bit I would still be an order of magnitude better off. The video card is set to the Dell profile but even if it were not both apps should show the same thing. They don't. It's not CNX2 as it along with GIMP, PaintShop Pro X4, Firefox and IE display the image as expected. Just VNX2 is off and it won't budge.
