I'm having an issue with Illustrator CC 2017.
When i use export to create a PNG file, it comes out with dull colors. However, when i use Save for web the PNG comes out in nice colors.
The result i want:
(created with Save for Web)
(Exported to PNG)
This one looks dull compared to the other.
About my setup:
Thanks for your time.
"Rich Black" is only relevant for CMYK. The rest simply sounds like the usual lack of color management vs. a poorly adjusted monitor. You need to work on that rather than anything else.
This is about as helpful as an elephant in a minefield. Thanks, guy.
I felt you!
Sorry about the trouble. I would like to know if you have tried the steps shared by @Danny Whitehead.? If these steps don't help, I will request you to please share a few more details like:

Edit -> Assign Profile. My guess is that you have AdobeRGB assigned. For work that will be mainly viewed on-screen, you should assign sRGB.
Save for Web will automatically convert to sRGB, whereas Export preserves the colour numbers, which will appear differently when viewed on most monitors, which are closer to sRGB.
You were right. That really helped. Thank you!
I have a different answer. Don't go to > Save As
Instead use > Eport > Quick Export as PNG
This is what I needed
That Quick export appears to be gone - None of that profile/color settings stuff worked for me - after 45 minutes of swearing I tried exporting a JPG and the color held - no idea - completely exasperating.
Quick Export is a Photoshop option.
Illustrator does not embed a color profile, other apps (including Illustrator) are just guessing what kind of RGB profile is used and assume sRGB.
Check in Illustrator what the color document profile is and assign that in Photoshop to the exported png.
