Bill: Don't know if my description of the solution reached the list. Can't remember seeing it. Think I'm getting punchy. Anyway, re-installing the 5.02 patch with the NEW one (dated 1999, way after the first version I had applied) the monitor profile shows in the compensation window where it should if it's loaded. Came up immediately with the new patch. This was a known bug, per the support base at Adobe. Second, Adobe has some Pentium III plugins that replace some already there. They take advantage of MMX2.
