    Thanks Mark L, Yeah this has been a big cluster f**k and I think I figured it out,
    but its not going to be the solution I was hoping for . . .

    I found the profiles and the way you install them is to just right click on them and say install, then right click again and say associate with and choose your printer . . .

    Only they're still not showing up, so I think the person who originally created these profiles [which wasn't me] may have created them with version 7.5 and for a MAC . . .

    It still doesn't make sense, since they're running on that old PC with 7.6v2,
    but at this point I'm stumped and I think I may have to recreate every profile
    from scratch . . . CRAP !

    Anyways - GO COLTS ! ! !

    Do you not add the ICC profiles through the production manager, by selecting the printer and going to the properties? I was just looking and it has a place to add the output ICC profiles.

    OK this is getting confusing, but let me see if I can be more specific . . .

    In the RIP/PRINT under the advanced tab there is a selection for MEDIA

    below there are output settings for ICM/ICC etc . . .

    But in this MEDIA area on my old computer are selections such as

    artist canvas blah blah blah, adhesive back vinyl matt finish, etc, etc, etc . . .

    but on the new computer there are only [5] things in there under the MEDIA

    options . . . I've added dozens of profiles and they show up below in the

    output settings drop menu, but my issue is strictly under the MEDIA drop menu . . .

    Sorry about NOT being as specific as I could have been, and I hope that maybe

    some one has experienced this or knows how to fix it, or knows how to retrieve these

    settings from my old computer . . . !

    thank You ! ! !

    cinemasign.grafix, You are Brilliant . . . Although I am still missing a few of the
    older profiles I now have a better understanding of how this works and I have been able to recover most of the ICC/ICM profiles and then match them up to
    media selections that I name myself in the area where you directed me . . .

    My Bad . . . If only I had asked the question properly to begin with . . .
    I feel extremely stupid, but I'm glad to have learned this so thanks again
    for all your help . . .

    Thread Closed !
    unless some of you pros want to bash me . . .
    then it's thread still open and happy hunting . . . ! - LOL

    :U Rock: :cool1: :thumb: . . . GO COLTS ! ! !
