Profile Location (Windows) (L4.13 from the book)

In Windows XP and Windows Vista, the Colorsync Profiles folder can be found here: Windows/System32/Spool/Drivers/Color. Alternatively, you can right click in XP or Vista on an output profile and select “Install Profile.” On older Windows operating systems, this is generally the location: Windows\System\Color. Also note that you will need to restart Photoshop if the program is open when you add profiles to your Profiles folder.
