Where do I need to put ICC or ICM profiles to use them with my Epson printer or scanner?


  • Operating System:
    • Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, ME, 98
    • Mac OS X 10.x.x, OS 9.x
  • Products:
    • Epson inkjet printer and All-In-One range
    • Epson scanner range


ICC or ICM profiles must be placed in certain folders in order for them to be accessible to your applications, and the location of these folders is different on each operating system. The most common locations are as follows:

Windows 10,Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista and XP:
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\color

Windows 2000 and NT
  • C:\WINNT\system32\spool\drivers\color

Windows ME and 98
  • C:\Windows\System\Color

macOS/Mac OS X
  • Mac OS X hard drive, then: Library\ColorSync\Profiles

Mac OS 9.X
  • Mac hard drive, then: System Folder\ColorSync Profiles


Some applications may require the files to be in ICM format (for a PC) or ICC format (for a Mac). You can rename the files to give them the required extension (.icm or .icc).
