ICC Profile Inspector

ICC Profile Inspector is a free software to view ICC profiles under the Microsoft Windows operating system. It displays the ICC header information, the ICC tag table, and data in each tag. The tool is very useful for developing ICC tools and ICC profiles. It is aimed for checking tag data. Although it checks ICC profile's basic data structure, it was not designed to validate ICC profiles.
