The profile needs to have a file extension (".icc" or ".icm"), or VueScan
will not let you select it.

Mac OS does not require these extensions, but apparently they are needed in
Windows, and Ed is using a cross-platform color management library.

A word of warning: Mac OS X (which I think you are using) is still a bit
flaky in the way it handles file extensions, especially when you are adding
or deleting them from file names.  I had a custom monitor profile, generated
by Spyder/OptiCAL, with no extension in the file anme.  I added the ".icc"
suffix, and this triggered some sort of corruption in my HD directories.
All my profiles became invisible to the Monitors control panel.
Fortunately, running Disk Utility fixed the damaage.  I generated a new
profile from scratch, using OptiCAL, and gave it a name with the ".icc"
suffix.  This profile was recognized by VueScan.
