I can think of two things to ask:
Did you purchase the plugins, or are you using the tryout versions?
Did you follow the plugins' installation instructions precisely, or did you try to install them intuitively?

I think you DID miss something. How do you expect to see a glow on a solid? What happens if you use a piece of video footage?

Since I don't have any Sapphire plugins, I downloaded a trial version for Mac. The installation instructions say this:

"To view on-line documentation after you install the software, go to the /Applications/GenArtsSapphireAE folder and double click on Online Help.html or Online Help.pdf. You can also click on the "About" box while using any plug-in."

Have you done this yet?

There are also some helpful tutorial videos on the Genarts site, I see.

check to see your view / composite modes of the effect. many times the sapphire effects do not always default to preview the composite version and shows wireframes with controls for X, Y, and Z axis, or other controls to size, shape, etc.
