Ah, those .bkf files.. this was why I stopped using MS Backup early on, not only are they hard to open, but half the time they're going to be corrupt anyway. (MS Backup is apparently quite happy to create .bkf files it won't be able to open later w/o telling you anything went wrong!)
Maybe this sounds silly, have you already tried messing with it on your own w/ a Win XP machine? Personally I'd load up XP in a VM & see what I can do w/ the .bkf file. Unfortunately, it is fairly common for those .bkf files to be broken (& thus the catalog won't load), but you could always make an attempt just to be sure.
Outside of that, not sure what your options are, honestly I don't remember ever finding anything free/open source that actually worked. If that program can at least see what's in the .bkf file, maybe it's worth giving it a shot.
