CF settings lost

Folks I have a strange problem. I converted a project from CS3 to CS5.5 and now my color finesse settings have disappeared and returned to default. I have spent weeks perfecting the color matching to have it all goto waste. Is there anything that I can do to get this back or am I stuck starting from scratch?

Do you still see Color Finesse applied to your clips, but with reset parameters, or are you getting a "missing effect" instead of Color Finesse?
Color Finesse 3 should read Color Finesse 2.1 settings and update them, but if you were using the older Color Finesse 1.x, then that was considered a different effect and won't get translated by CF 3.
One way to bring the settings forward would be to install CS3 and the older version of Color Finesse on your system (I have CS3-CS5.5 installed on my Win7 64 system), then step through each clip that has Color Finesse applied and do a Save Settings. The saved settings files can then be reloaded into Color Finesse 3 running under AE CS5.5.
