Bridge 2018 (8.0.0.262) new smart collections fails

When creating a new smart collection in Bridge it is not visible in the collection panel after save.
Looking into my folders I find that the new collection is created in the folder c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Bridge CC\Collections\. However, only the collections in the folder c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Bridge CC 2018\Collections\ are shown in the collections panel.
If I move the new smart collection manually over to the Bridce CC 2018 collections folder, it becomes visible.

I had a similar experience. I created a smart collection in Bridge CC 2018, and it was stored with my Bridge CC 2017 collections. Thank you Reinhard for giving me this workaround solution.

Worse problem with Smart Collections in Bridge CC 2018!
Can't create them at all. In the dialogue box when I press Save nothing happens and the dialogue box remains open.  I have not had previous versions of Bridge installed nor are there any other Bridge folders as described above.
My system is Windows 10 Pro 64 bit freshly installed on a new PC and my Adobe CC software is also freshly installed.  All software installations are on a brand new SSD so the problem is definitely not related to old installations.
Have tried everywhere I can without success to find a solution short of reinstalling Bridge.
