Help, please - where are my Athentec Perfectly Clear and PSP Creative Collection files?

I've today successfully installed PaintShop Pro X8. This came bundled with the Corel Ultimate Bonus Pack, which includes Corel Aftershot 2; on1 Perfect Effects 9.5; Athentec's Perfectly Clear 2 SE; and Corel's Ultimate Creative Collection.

I'm running Win 7, 64-bit.

As the header indicates, everything seems to be working except the last two (Perfectly Clear and Creative Collection). They appear to have installed OK, but do you think I can get at them? Also, when I do a Start Menu search for them in my Program files, I draw a blank. I guess the files must be hiding somewhere, but I cannot find them. I tried a re-install of Perfectly Clear and was offered a "repair" option, which I selected, and the installation completed - but I'll be damned if I can see the program on my hard disk.

Can anyone help, please, to put things right (assuming they can be put right, that is)?

Thank you.

Have you looked in both folders containing 'Program' Files on your C: drive? Quite often I have found plug ins NOT in the 64 version of program Files. You could also do a search for 'progamme name'.exe through the Windows Explorer search facility. It may also be that neither programme works with Windows 7 - if it is a new version chances are that they have aimed at the Windows 10 market - just a thought.

I use win10. Perfectly Clear works as a plug-in I think, because I cannot file the file separately among program files (or apps).

For Percetly Clear
Open PaintShop ProX8
Click 'Edit' ('manage', 'adjust', 'edit' menu appear on the top bar, choose 'edit')
From the menu bar go to
Athentech imaging
Perfectly Clear
When there is an image file opened then you can edit it with that plugin.

I do not know about creative collection but in corel user forum, somebody said you should also check This PC (or my computer)> Documents > Corel PaintShop Pro > 18.0

Thank you both. The software does clearly state that it is Win 7, 64-bit (among other platforms, eg Win 10) compliant.

In fact, I have since discovered where Perfectly Clear is 'hiding' - exactly where Onur said it would be; so that's that problem solved.

I'll check out the other file path re the Creative Collection.

Many thanks again.
