    Fine Threshold 8bf - what am I doing wrong?

    Hey, hopefully this is something stupid that I've neglected to do.

    I've been using Irfanview with the Fine Threshold 8bf filter for a long time with no problems. But I recently had to do a total reinstall and now I can't get past this behaviour.
    I installed Irfanview 64 in Windows 10 (home, 64).
    Installed plugins.
    Pasted "finethreshold.8bf" into the "Adobe 8BF" folder.
    I loaded the filter through the Filter dialog and it shows up there and works as expected when I start it from the Filter dialog.
    However, the plugin still does not show in the list of available filters. (see images)

    Even thoughthe filter technically works, this makes a difference because I'm scanning over 100 pages and need to be able to access the filter in as few keystrokes as possible. I was doing it through the regular Adobe 8bf Plugins menu, and I'd love to get back to doing it that way again as soon as possible.

    Thanks so much for any help you can offer!!!

    I pasted finethreshold.8bf from a .ZIP file into "C:\Program Files\IrfanView\Plugins\Plugins32\Adobe 8BF".
    Win10 asked for admin rights, which I granted. Now the filter is shown in the filter dialog.
