The issue I have is that in my workflow I switch between my laptop and my desktop (either by making a raw copy of my catalog or by exporting my "working folder" as an independant catalog. Both methods have the same issue, the custom color profile is not "included" in the copy or the export. So when I open the catalog on the "new" computer, the custom profile is "assigned" but missing. (of course because lightroom is looking for it on the local drive at the path described earlyer...and the profile file is on the "first" computer
I hope you understand what I mean. Is there a way to "include" automatically custom color profiles that are in use when exporting a catalog to another computer ? Is there a way to "bind" a color profile to a picture it has been assigned to, so that the profile file is included in the export ?

First and easiest (with some real advantages) if you work with DNG, the profiles are embedded into the DNG with lots of other useful data. DNGs will allow you to work with multiple copies and all the good stuff is embedded into that DNG. So you are 'binding" the profile and all the edits, a preview of the edits etc, into that DNG.
Or simply move the profile to both locations where you work AND backup (clone) your catalog and all necessary settings (presets, along with the profiles) to the other machine.
