Tom, I noted you didn't specify the magnitude limit, "=19", before the Path.

SA2_PATH=19;C:\Program Files\Guide8\Sa20

Also check from the Menu Bar, Display > Star Display > Mag range, is set

If that doesn't help make sure the Pathname exactly reproduces the
Upper/Lower cases shown in Explorer. HTH...joe :)
