Animated gifs don't animate in Paint Shop Pro. If you have Animation Shop, open it in that, and it should work. Having said that, Animation Shop is not included in version X.

You will find Animation Shop (free) from the JASC's website click here

Hope this helps.

Your are welcome.

Open Animation Shop and run it first. After that, Paint Shop Pro X (should) recognise it. To access Animation Shop from Paint Shop Pro X, click File, and it should be in the drop-downn menu, somewhere. If not, you may need to access Animation Shop from it's icon.

If my memory serves me right, you cannot access Animation Shop from Paint Shop Pro X - another forum member may know different. However, you can use Animation Shop and Paint Shop Pro X, independently.

You will find an excellent specialised Paint Shop Pro forum click here
It has helped me in the past.

Additonal Notes.

To open your gif in Animation Shop, right-click your gif, then choose OPEN WITH - and choose Animation Shop from the drop-down menu. If you cannot see Animation shop in the list, click CHOOSE PROGRAM. Then click BROWSE, and locate the JASC folder. Now locate and click Anim.exe, then click OK. In future, Animation Shop will be available when you right-click a gif.
