That is a fault in the DryCreek error checking tool.

Also, those are devicelink profiles, not printer profiles.

Those devicelink profiles have no devices, no source profiles, and thus no pseq tag.

Dry Creek says it's Adobe's fault - Adobe says it's Dry Creek's fault. This doesn't bode well for getting the problem solved does it. All I want to do is to be able to load printer profiles so I can continue to get accurate colors etc. when I print at Costco. Any solutions here?

The profiles aren't bad - the profile checker is just incorrectly reporting a problem that does not exist.
The profiles are still quite usable.

But, again, those are not printer profiles, but device link profiles - usable in Convert to Profile Advanced, or in the Color Lookup Adjustment.

For Costco, you just need to download the profiles for your store, and convert your documents to that profile before sending them the file.

(and if DryCreek really has a problem with our profiles, they bloody well know where to find me to ask questions)

I CAN'T download the profiles for Costco. I am caught in a loop - the computer tells me that it can't fix these errors. When I go into CS6 and pull down the soft proof screen the Costco printer profile doesn't show up on my list of profiles that I can select - even though I have attempted to download it on several occasions. All I can assume is that the errors/incompatibility between my operating system and CS6 are not allowing me to download this profile. Thanks

p.s. I'm sure the problems has to do with my new MAC operating system and CS6 because I just downloaded Dry Creek's new printer profiles on my old pc which has Windows XP and CS5 - which I will have to keep using until this problem is resolved. Thank you

p.p.s. I can't download the printer profiles on my Mac because they are grayed out.

Chris - As I understand it, the profile checker Elaine used is Apple's own ColorSync profile validator. She, and others on the web, report incompatibilities between Lion and CS6 that prevent any profiles from being used.

The error messages are all what Elaine reported. See, for example:
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/...
and
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/...

The posts on Apple's forums mention iPhoto being unable to load when the CS6 profiles were present in the system and weird color shifts occurring.

We (Dry Creek) do not publish a profile checker. In the cases above, the Lion complaints were resolved by removing CS6 from the system. It appears that Apple and Adobe are not on the same page, colorimetrically speaking.
