softproof icc files + ColorSync

I upgraded my Mac from High Sierra to Mojave and I ran into 2 problems :

1) After copying the Turboprint softproof-profile P600photoblk-epson_premium.icc into the Colorsync folder, and after restarting OSX, the profile doesn't show up in Colorsync
2) Assigning this softproof profile to a jpeg file in Affinity Photo immediately crashes OSX. According to Apple-support it is a third-party problem. I opened a TT with Affinity's helpdesk.

Under High Sierra, I had stability problems when softproofing with Epson's generic printerprofiles. Now, they also no longer show up in after the OSX-update
Before running into troubles, I noticed that Turboprint-softproof and Epson are both version 2.4.0.

Is this a known issue and can it be solved ?

Thank you

I just discovered that both problems disapear when I revert the colorprofile of my MacBook from a custom one to the Apple default (--> Color LCD).
I never had an issue with any custom screen profile in the years before.

sorry, this problem is not yet known or reported and I cannot reproduce it here.

The softproof profile is visible in Colorsync after it has been copied /Library/ColorSync/Profiles
and also works in applications.
