I am using PS CC on a w 10 computer.  I am finding that the lists of available lens profiles vary between Photoshop Camera RAW and Lightroom also there are older profiles that are missing.  (eg. in PS I can see a NON AF 105, 105 f1.4, 105 f2.0 and a 105 f2.8 but NO 105 f1.8, (my lens)) Is there a complete list of available profiles and is it possible to download them?
Thanks
Chris

Camera Raw and Lightroom use a common lens profile store on your hard drive. 
If you see a lens one place and not the other it is most likely due to file type. There are many more lens profiles for raw files than for JPEG, TIFF, PSD. Example: If you select a raw file in Camera Raw and a JPEG in Lightroom you will see a reduced profile set in Lightroom as there are fewer JPEG profiles than raw. 

The complete selection of lens profiles supplied by Adobe should be available to all applications.  There is nothing to download as long as you are using the latest version of Camera Raw or Lightroom. 

A complete list of lens profiles available is located here: https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/supported-lenses.html

Make sure your Photoshop CC and Lightroom Classic CC are both up-to-date.

Thanks, I did not know that there are different profiles for different file types.  The list will help a lot.  Is there somewhere I can get a step by step on creating my own, start to finish?

Hi again, I'm using the Quick start guide and I am in the "Capturing the Calibration Chart Image Sets procedures" section what does this mean? 
3. For prime lenses, shoot at (1 × minimum focus distance) and (5 × minimum focus distance) focus distance positions with a fixed f/11 aperture.
Specifically  this (5 x minimum focus distance) focus distance positions.
There is only 1 minimum focus distance to each lens.  Other guidelines indicate I need 9 shots per set, moving from center to right middle to left middle to bottom left...counter clockwise to make nine shots, is this saying I need only 6?
Thanks
Chris

You need 9 shots at Minimum Focus Distance and 9 shots at five times that distance covering a tic-tac-toe style grid on the target.  So, a total of 18 shots (it has been a long time since I have done this so I am remembering back 6 or 7 years!
