Newbie: Error in compiling' help needed.

My first time using Re-Shader. I Installed the latest ReShade (v 4.6.1) in order to use an FO4 ENB ('Winter's Grasp'). On installing the ReShade 4.6.1 I opted to NOT install any of the defaults since I did not know what they were. So I answered 'None' to those options.
I downloaded the 'Reshade-Shaders' file for 'Winters Grasp' and followed the directions to point the ReShade application to the 'Reshade-shaders' directories ('shaders' and 'Textures'). This all seemed to go well.

However, I am receiving a notice and in the log that there was a 'errors' in compiling . The onscreen log shows some 'Warnings' in yellow and 'Errors' in red.

Errors were in : MagicBloom.fx ; FXAA.fx ; DOF.fx (five compile errors in DOF)

Does anyone know where I might look to rectify these warnings and errors?

Thank You!

I have the dxgi.log

Hovering over the failures will tell you exactly what failed. Most likely a missing file. Just run the setup again and make sure to at least install the "Standard effects" package.

I have captured the particulars of the error messages (RED font)
MagicBloom 3 errors: x3011 1 error x3538 all concerning ' value ...literal expression'

FXAA 2 errors: x3568 'interpolation qualifiers do not match vertex shaders ones'

DOF 5 errors: x3120 'invalid type for index. index must be an integer scaler'

You are using pretty old shaders (pre ReShade 4.0) that had mistakes that ReShade now correctly throws errors for. You'll have to update those. The legacy package in the setup will have all of those fixed.

Thank you very much! Are you speaking ... "pretty old shaders" of the 'shaders' that came packaged with the mod. i.e. the 'reshade-shaders-master' files? I am assuming so ...
Thank you!
