Convert Colors dialog's "Output Intent" check box and profile are being grayed off. Hence cannot use that option at all. Why is it grayed off in Acrobat XI??

Take a look at the documentation: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/using/WS58a04a822e3e50102bd615109794195ff-7b9a.w.html
It says " This choice is not available if the document does not have an output intent. (PDFs that don't comply with standards, such as PDF/X or PDf/A, often lack an output intent.)"
So, I assume that your document does not have an output intent.

The same PDF document when view in Acrobat IX, the "Output Intent" check box and profile are available for selection. Why is that so?

You mean Acrobat 9? I don't know. This may be a bug. Can you share the PDF file that shows this behavior?

I have sent the PDF file to your email.

Sorry, I was swamped with work the last few days. I'll take a look on Monday.

The file you sent does not have an OutputIntent defined. OutputIntent is an optional dictionary entry in the Catalog dictionary of the document - your document does not have that. This means that Acrobat 9 was actually not behaving correctly, something that was fixed in Acrobat XI.

Thanks so much for help.

I can confirm that this feature has been changed with Acrobat XI; in Acrobat X, it was possible to select it, to specify a profile, and the colors were converted to that profile, and that profile was set as Output Intent.
In Acrobat XI, one has to first specify the Output Intent (which would mean an according Fixup in Preflight). Then, it is possible to do the color conversion.
But then, one could wonder why not do the color conversion in Preflight.
Hope this can help.
