I recently upgraded my PC and re-installed LR. I copied the lens profiles that I had created using Adobe Lens Profile Creator from my old PC to the C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\ folder on my new PC. But I can't get LR to recognize the profiles. IE when I Enable Profile Corrections my profiles do not show up on the dropdown list. What am I missing?

The folder you mention is the correct one (for LR3 and LR4). Are you sure you're looking at the right type of image (Raw vs. JPEG) the profiles were made for?

Yes, the profiles and photos are both RAW.

I assume there is the correct user name between the 2 slashes here:
C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming

Is the manufacturer correct?

What LR version are you using? The location mentioned works fine for me in LR3 and LR4.

Yes, my user name was supposed to go between the 2 slashes.

Not sure what you mean by manufacturer. Lens Manufacturer? That hasn't changed from the previous install that did work. Photos from my library that used to have lens profiles applied in the old install no longer do.

I am using LR4, but I tried reverting back to LR3 with the same problem.

Oh wait, hang on... Okay I have it sorted now. I noticed that my profiles were corrupt (0 Bytes). Copy from another source, wipe egg off face, and all is well with the world again. Thanks for the help and sorry for the bother!
