Download this file:
http://www.minorplanetcenter.net/iau/Ephemerides/Comets/Soft02Cmt.txt
Rename the file to soft02cm.txt
and that will allow the comets to show.
 
There is an automated comets download function on Guide under the EXTRAS/Comet Asteroid Options/Add MPC Comets.....
Guide will do the work for you, provided that you have all the current updates for Guide in place.

Now unable to get any of the tle.dat of soft.cmt comets to display.
