Also, Windows tries to "help" by adding .txt to the file extension at times. Make sure the file extension is .ini. You can turn on file extension displaying by changing a setting in Windows at Control Panel (change from category view to view by small icons) > Folder options > Hide file extensions for known types.

Mac OsX tries to "help" you as well.
Right click on the file -> Informations -> Name&Suffix and just remove the .txt that worked for me.

Also in Slic3r the submenu Import Config under File is now called Load config, isn't it? I'm very new to this and this just confused me a litte :D

I am having what I think is a windows issue. I click save as, confirm its ini as the file extension. when I double check in explore, the profile is listed that way but when I go to load the profile, it shows now profiles listed. I think windows is still 'classifying' it as a text file even though it clearly has the ini file extension. I have the same issue with cura profiles and gcode files. anyone else have the issue? is there a way to fix that? thanks!

Winwoods hides the extension of known filetypes so my bet is you're looking a file named config.ini.txt or the like. Make sure you configure winwoods to show extension of known filetypes and you won't be fooled anymore.

thank you for responding, the file type is classified as text so I think that is my issue (I am viewing in full details). I think that is my issue.
