Kodak 150 paper icc profile
Looking for icc profile for Kodak paper - Matchprint M150DP.
Ecentral and partner place seem to be down so I was unable to find it from Kodak.
Mark, you did not mention if you are using Kodak Proofing Software Matchprint Inkjet, the proofer make/model or the resolution/s required. The Kodak .installer file will include a required KPS Media Configuration file (linerization, ink limits, gray balance etc), proofer profiles, devicelink profiles for proofing industry standards and or colour bars for industry standards.
I might be able to help as I have previously downloaded the installers for various makes/models, I just need the required info.
P.S. eCentral has changed, so your link may be old:
EDIT: I am also having issues accessing the site.

Yes this is for Matchprint 188.8.131.52. I have the .installer for M150DP, but don't see how to get the icc profile out of it so I can use it in profile wizard to make a device link.
(Actually after installing and restarting I don't see anything with the 150 paper anywhere?) We have Epson 9800 and 10600 connected to the matchprint.
I may have missed a step, but don't see where.
Kodak must have laid off their web support guys
Mark, using your KPS Client software, in the Kodak Proofer Finder window, go to Controller/Administer (prooferAdmin).
On the main Software tab of the controller icon, hit the Install button - then point to the .installer file. After installation, back in the Admin area, click on the icon for the proofer model that the .installer media file was for (rather than clicking on the controller icon). The tabs will change and you will see an ICC tab. Select the ICC file in the list and then hit the export button. All of this is based on the current 5.2 version, I think that the earliest install that I have used is 4.2.1 so I hope that this is the same in your version. The .installer file is proprietary and I don't know of any way to get to the files without installing it via the KPS client software. You will need to have each model proofer installed, otherwise the installer will not let you load a different model .installer file into the wrong printer (which can be a pain when all you wish to do is have access to the profiles).
Hope this helps,

I did install but the files were not anywhere to be seen. The install file is one that's been around since the machine was installed. The proofers, epson 9800 and 10600, are the originals so I'm not sure why the icc profile is nowhere to be seen.
I finally was able to get on kodaks site so we'll see if it has icc profiles i need.
Mark, perhaps double check the built-in help guide for installation instructions.
One can also use Kodak Partner Place for finding installation instructions in the Knowledge Base (734-00437A-MUL):
Did the installer pop up a message indicating that of the 'xxx'' amount of source files, all "xxx" files were successfully installed? If I remember correctly, it should also have brought up a webpage with more info after the install? If you click on the icon for the proofer rather than the controller when you are in the admin area, do you see an ICC tab as in the screen capture I posted? Perhaps your version is so old compared to my experience that things just work differently...
When you go to the calibration area, does it list the M150DP media configuration? If the .installer correctly installed the media configuration, then I would imagine that the ICC profiles and other files were also installed correctly too.
As far as I know, the Kodak website does not offer individual profiles for download for Matchprint Inkjet, it is just the .installer files.
We do have an x800 model, so I have access to the proofer ICC for UV and Unfiltered profiles for 3x3, 7x7 resolution. I don't have a 10600 so I can't load in the .installer for this printer.
What devicelink are you trying to create for this media? The installer will install a 360x360 F29 unfiltered relcol proofing devicelink for this media.

Ok, got the install files from kodak and all went well. I got the icc profiles out without any problems.
(The old ones i had must have been for a different printer?)
Thanks for the help
