Chat History on Windows 8

I have copied the chat history db (main.db) from my windows 7 laptop to my new laptop running windows 8 (in case this helps, I used the search facility to locate the main.db file in the C folder on each of the laptops). Skype on the laptop running windows 8 displays the chats OK but does not allow me to i) show messages going back in time e.g. 7 days, 3 months, 6 months as it does on the windows 7  laptop ii) search the skype chat.   Are these features in the process of being developed for windows 8?
