Windows 7 64 bit and icc profiles
« on: February 05, 2010, 11:58:17 AM »

I am about to upgrade to a Windows 7 64 bit computer.  I have many paper profiles for printing on my Epson 7900, both custom and 'canned' from the mfg site.  Is it safe to presume that these profiles will work normally in Windows 7 64 bit or are the custom ones going to have to be redone and new 64 bit ones downloaded.  Since they are just simple instruction sets I suspect they will work but thought I would ask to get an answer from someone who has actually given it a try.

 

Thanks

The profiles are just 'data' in the sense that a document, spreadsheet or even image is data, in otherwords they should be underlying O/S agnostic.  

I have no problems uploading or downloading profiles from my Z3100 to either Win7/64, Win7/32, XP or Mac OS X....

Thanks very much...one more wuick question if you don't mind.  If one is using 64 bit Photoshop on 64 bit Win7 should the profiles be in c:\windows\System32\spool\drivers\color\   or in c:\windows\SysWOW64\spool\drivers\color\???

What about if you are using the 32 bit PS on a 64 bit  Win 7??

Why do they have folders for both 64 and 32 bit profiles?

Good question!  I always use the O/S color management app to deal with this; no problems so far:

All my profiles are in "c:\windows\System32\spool\drivers\color\ ", and they're visible from both 32-bit and 64-bit applications.

Just put the profile somewhere and then right click install and let the system do it.
