Try using just blacklist instead of blacklist1. You can have upto 10 blacklist filters applied but it should start with blacklist, blacklist1, blacklist2...etc till blacklist9.

Tried this -

[WinEventLog://Security]
disabled = 0
start_from = oldest
current_only = 0
checkpointInterval = 5
index = winevents
renderXml=false
blacklist1=EventCode="5145" TaskCategory="Detailed File Share"
blacklist1=EventCode="5145" TaskCategory="File Share"

Did not work. Still see the events come in.
