Default Trial version: Categories not showing

Hi! I just downloaded and installed X-Cart Gold trial version 4.4.2 this morning with the fashion-grey skin. Can anyone tell me why my categories are not displaying on my storefront? I cannot seem to find the answer anywhere. Thanks in advance. Here is a screenshot to show you what I mean.

Something wrong with categories template. Do you see any categories.tpl files inside X-Cart folder on your server?

Unless I overlooked it, I don't see any categories.tpl file. Could I have installed it wrong? Where should it be located in the xcart folder on ftp?

Ok, so I found categories.tpl inside skin\fashion_mosaic_grey\customer\categories.tpl

This is what I found. Anything wrong with this code?

{*
$Id: categories.tpl,v 1.2.2.1 2010/12/17 15:12:37 aim Exp $
vim: set ts=2 sw=2 sts=2 et:
*}
{if $categories_menu_list ne ''}
{capture name=menu}

{if $active_modules.Flyout_Menus}

<img src="{$ImagesDir}/spacer.gif" alt="" class="fancy-height-extender" />

{include file="modules/Flyout_Menus/categories.tpl"}
{assign var="additional_class" value="menu-fancy-categories-list"}

{else}

<img src="{$ImagesDir}/spacer.gif" alt="" class="height-extender" />

<ul>
{foreach from=$categories_menu_list item=c name=categories}
<li{interline name=categories}><a href="home.php?cat={$c.categoryid}" title="{$c.category|escape}">{$c.category|amp}</a></li>
{/foreach}
</ul>

{assign var="additional_class" value="menu-categories-list"}

{/if}

<div class="categories-clearing"></div>

{/capture}
{include file="customer/menu_dialog.tpl" title=$lng.lbl_categories content=$smarty.capture.menu}
{/if}

I was able to get the categories to appear when I went into admin/tools/modules/flyoutmenu/configure and unchecked "cache menu." I am glad I figured it out, but it says on the little question mark next to "cache the menu" Recommended value is ON.
Select to cache the whole category menu. This will speed up the menu's response time and reduce the load on your MySQL server since the cache will keep the whole category structure and X-Cart won't have to retrieve the same data from the database each time a visitor uses the menu.
Why does it need to be turned off to show up? Sounds like I really should have the option turned on, right?

I am sorry to say that but it looks to be a bug in X-Cart v4.4.2
The solution will be provided soon at https://bugtracker.qtmsoft.com/view.php?id=39274
