Printer does not Print with ColorMunki Profile

Printing from a Mac OS X but the profile from ColorMunki Photo or ColorMunki Design is not being applied.In some cases, prints do not come out when printing with a profile created with ColorMunki software. This occured so far on Mac OS (10.6) but may not be limited to this operating system.  The profile was applied as output profile in Photoshop CS4 or CS5 and this was affecting both Canon and Epson printers. The print job has been sent but the printer was simply doing nothing.

The reason was, that the ICC profile created with ColorMunki contained mutated vowels like 'ü', 'ä', 'ö' in its file name. Those characters were changed to broken characters in the internal file name of the profile. Most applications referring to the internal file name display the profiles in the programs pull-down menus or for other tasks so the user is not aware of what is causing the printer to get hung up.

The issue could be solved by removing those special characters from both the internal and external file name if profile editing software is available.  For instance ProfileEditor 5 allows users the ability to edit the internal profile name. The easier answer is simply create a new profile and avoid using special characters in the file name. To be on the safe side also avoid using file names that are too long.
