access t osass and compass color function

I don't succeed to access to color function define in compass ( only sass ) .
Is there a tutorial about configure sass and compass color function for phpstorm ?

By color functions, do you refer to What problems using them in Compass project have you faced? Do other Compass features work for you?

i ll post  after try many others tools to know if they work  and to be shure that it is not a ruby/javascript  installation problem but rather a phpstorm  issue .

I test on a simple project by changing only color.
i launch compass watch ( work during all test session )for compile sass to css
the index.html contain a script for reload the css if change occur in the css file
this script need http protocol so i open the html page using http protocol
i don't need the phpstorm server so i launch easyphp server
theproject is inside easyphpserver directory
I use chrome browser  but i don't need the phpstorm plugin or server
i switch during test beetween microsoft text editor and jetbrain phptstom editor

1) i open MS editor only ( textpad ? )
i change the color in sass file and then color change occur in the browser( easyphp)
2) i close the MS text editor
3) i open phpstorm project  that contain the sass/_color.scss
when i change the color  in color.scss
=> the Command windows  show error
=> the css file is not update
=> the browser don't update since no change occur in the css file

Is there a way to stop the http server launch by phpstorm ?
during those step the phphwebserver is running but i don't use it .
when i close phpstorm the server shutdown http://localhost:63342/ ( no html page , no error message )
in this case i think i have in a browser a message generate by the browser in french "Page web inaccessible"
when i relaunch the phpstorm editor , the page go html page error ( 404 not found => the server work )
during all test chrome Jetbrain IDE support is install and enable
then i desactivate the chrome plugin and see the server still running after phpstorm is launch .
But this time i could use phpstorm for edit my sass file and let compass compile the sass file to css .
in a way phphstrom create a http server ( 63342) from a directory that is already manage by easyphp server but on a different port number  !!!

I think it is a problem about order relative to
launch phpstorm
launch browser
activate disable chrome phptstorm plugin

i don't achieve to add again the problem after last disable chrome phpstorm plugin.
the compass.bat contain this text
IF NOT "%~f0" == "~f0" GOTO :WinNT
@"C:\RailsInstaller\Ruby1.9.3\bin\ruby.exe" "C:/RailsInstaller/Ruby1.9.3/bin/compass" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
@"%~dp0ruby.exe" "%~dpn0" %*
