Hi

8BF files are plug-in files and are normally stored in the plug-ins folder in this location, you can't just open them directly in Photoshop

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Plug-ins

I agree with Ged_Traynor, I also found this:

 

How do I open an 8BF file in Photoshop?
8bf" file (or "make alias" on Mac) and place it into the Plug-Ins folder. With shortcuts you can manage your plugins quickly and safely. You can select an additional plug-ins folder in Photoshop Preferences. Call the command Edit on Windows or Photoshop on Mac, then -> Preferences -> Plug-ins & Scratch Disk.
