Missing Profile AI CS3

Mar 31, 2012 5:15 PM

For the first time ever last Wednesday each time I open a file in AI - CS3 I get the same message: "Missing Profile - The doc does not have an embedded CMYK profile". I looked in user>library>profiles and sure enough they were gone? I downloaded new profiles from Adobe, installed them in user>library>profiles - and still the same thing with each file I open. I dragged AI to the trash, re-installed AI from my disc repeated the process with the same results - HELP!

I don't seem to be able to find any info on the Adobe forum, I realize I need to upgrade but for now what is the solution - Thanks in advance. Boatingislife!

    This is standard when you have "Ask When Opening" selected in your Color Settings.  It's a good way to remind you what to do about your assigned color profile.  Someone must have made a change to your applications settings without telling you.  I actually prefer to work this way and typically just OK the warning as part of opening the file.  I have it set to ask me in Photoshop, too.
