    Hi - Just downloaded some ICC paper profiles from Epson's web site. The same ones I downloaded for our G5 before we upgraded to a mac pro.

    The download is a .sea file and refuses to open, or tries to open using another application - Thried stuffit to open with no success - Anyone else come accross this?

    Thanks

    It's a self-extracting archive, which means it is really an executable file. It may or may not be a Stuffit file at all, it could be a DiskDoubler archive or some other. The self-extracting code may be OS9/Classic, in which case it is out of luck on an Intel. If Stuffit does not recognize and open it, you may have to take the file to an earlier Mac and expand it under OS9

    Thanks - it seems that they are .sea.hqx on epsons web site http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=14121&prodoid=53540919&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintosh
    No access to an earlier mac unfortunately. I might try and post on the digital photography forum and see if anyone could sned me the uncompressed files through as .sit or something.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Epson ICC profiles won't extract on Intel Macs

    Hi - Just upgraded our G5 to a Mac Pro - Tried to install the ICC profiles from the Epson web site http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/...3540919&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintosh and it seams that the .sea.hqx archive won't extract on an intel mac...mmmm

    Does anyone happen to have these they could .sit over? Or am I misssing a trick to get the babies to open!

    Thanks

    Apple stopped including Stuffit Expander some time ago, maybe you just need to go download a copy?

    Tried - Stuffit 11, doesn't want to know. Perhaps if someone else has a intel mac they could see if they are getting the same issue.

    Please don't multiple-post the same probem http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=253611

    Ask a mod to move it if it really should be in a different forum.

    FWIW, I downloaded it, once you have de-BinHexed it, the SEA file is the Epson installer itself, made with InstallerMaker or something, it is not a standard Stuffit archive. If it doesn't run under Intel 10.4.8, then there's not much you can do other than to contact Epson, unless there is some kind of utility that you can open the installer application an extract the contents/

    They do extract oddly, going straight to the desktop instead of to the current folder. I'm PMing you with a zip of the three profile installer apps.

    I tried for years to find a way to decompress old DiskDoubler files on OS X, to no avail.

    Finally I found a copy of DiskDoubler from 1999 and installed it on my G4 running OS 9 on top of OS X. Works like a charm.

    Since DD is incredibly hard to find online (impossible for me, I finally got it off an old backup CD-ROM), I've uploaded it here to share with anyone else who had this problem:

    DiskDoubler Pro 4.1 for Mac OS 9
    It's at the bottom of the article.
