Installing your Profile

Once you receive your profile, you will have to copy it into the correct location so that all your ICC aware software can pick the profile up

XP and Vista : use Windowssystem32spooldriverscolor
Windows NT/2000 : use Winntsystem32spooldriverscolor
Windows 2000 also allows automatic installation as described for XP.
Windows 98/ME : use Windows System Color

With a right mouse click on the profile, you will get the option to 'install profile' that installs the profile automatically. However, if you are updating a profile, this will not work and you will have to manually overwrite the old profile with the new one.

Mac OS X : use /Library/ColorSync/Profiles This directory makes the profile visible to all users.
Otherwise use/Users/your username/Library/ColorSync/Profiles This directory makes the profile visible only to the current user
