Rotation Trouble in Data Protector Express SSE 3.5

Hi,
I'm using Data Protector Express Single Server Edition ver. 3.50 (30483).

I've configured a custom rotation type and set an interval setting on the Week option of "Full Backup, 8 sets, every 1 week(s) on Friday".

So I was expecting to have 8 medias with full backups in order to achieve a backup until 8 weeks back. However every first Friday of the month the software says that the next media to use is "...\Weekly Rotation Media\1st Week of the Month", I began this rotation plan the past month so last Friday (sept 5th) I was expecting to be prompted for the "2nd 1st Week of the Month" I mean, the 5th media from the 8 sets I've configured.

what I am doing wrong?, how can I achieve this?

You need to take the "Fix by day of the week" then just click in the days so that you can see how will it behave.
