Noobie with 8bf problems

Hi, I installed Paint.Net in hopes that I can "replace" my old versions of certain other graphic software that does not seem to be totally compatible with Windows 8.1. The main one i have used for yonks is Jasc PSP 7, but I am a bit concerned about the issues that keep turning up now on the shiny new updated Windows.

 

Anyway, installing Paint.Net was easy but trying to get my .8bf files to work in Effects has not been so easy! I followed directions carefully but I am wondering if perhaps the files are too old? Many go back 5, 10 years...would that make a difference? I would think an 8bf was an .8bf and they would do nicely indefinitely...

 

I followed the directions on a page by "namesuppressed," I hope that is okay?

 

Any help, guidance and advice for this complete newbie will be very much appreciated :D

Yes, and Paint.Net does point to the 8bf filter locations, they all showed when the Filters tab was clicked (after the other steps). But when I click on a random filter and click "Run Filter," nothing happens. It is true that some of my 8bf filters don't work in 8.1 (I will be investigating these issues later) but many of them do. :/
