What is the difference between ICC and ICM?

ICC = International Color Consortium, which is the body that created the standard for device profiling, and also the name for the standard itself. Profiles typically carry the .icc file extension on a Windows system.

ICM = Image Color Management, which is the color management module in Microsoft Windows operating system.

While the two terms are sometimes used interchangably, they really should not be . Some profiling software will make profiles with an .icm file extension. Should this be the case and the profile not be recognized by an application, simply changing the file extension to .icc can often solve the problem.
