Have you downloaded it and then gone File>Import FXpreset pack?

If you've done that, click on the muzzle flash section and scroll through the presets. Should appear there.

i tried it that way, and the manual way by placeing the textures in the texture folder and the Sparking.FXpreset in the presets folder in the contents of the FXHome EffectsLab Pro Folder,.. not that this is dire but it would be nice for it to work,.. thanks for the help thus far. perhaps i might be doing something else wrong?

EDIT: before doing below, read the preset topic that's currently in the EffectsLab Support forum. It could be how your browser is downloading the file and where you're putting the FXpreset pack. Each preset is meant to be zipped up as a single FXpreset pack that EffectsLab unzips for you. You shouldn't have to be doing anything manual like putting textures in folders.
-------------------------------------------------

Hmm, if you're doing the above (downloading the preset to My Documents for e.g., then opening EL and importing), then all I can personally suggest is following the reinstall instructions HERE and trying it again.
