Hello,

I've downloaded ICC profiles, and have found them listed in finder, and in ColorSync Utility for a MacOS Big Sur.

They show in ColorSync, but I do get an error message for some when I "verify" and "repair" in which case I have restarted my entire computer, installed all updates, and also did a soft restart (holding shift until login appeared).

So, the profiles show up in the Colorync Utility and in the finder, where is it that you are unable to see them?

You wrote that your laptop can't read the file - what file?
