    Trouble Loading Paper Profiles

    I have samples of three papers from Monoprint: Rochester, Rochester Plus, and Rochester Warmton. I have downloaded the ICC profiles from the Monochrom website here:
    http://monochrom.com/cc/monoc/shop/m...&text=20407599
    I have placed them in the correct folder Windows>System32>spool>drivers>color - But they do not show up in the CS3 Print Dialog Box in the Printer Profile drop-down list.

    I have also added some other profiles (at the same time) and these show up and work fine so I am pretty sure I have them in the right place.

    The files only show up as 1KB when I place them in the directory.

    I am on a PC, CS3.

    Can someone try to download them and see if they show up for you. Any other thoughts would appreciated as well.

    Thanks

    Hi Charles:

    If a profile is sent to a PC from a Mac, there are actually TWO files sent, one is large and the other is small, usually a .icm instead of .icc and usually 1KB. You need to ignore the 1KB files and only load the larger ones on your PC. You are using the correct location.

    Cheers,
    Jack

    On a PC you can also right click the profile file and choose install.
