    Invision Power Board v1.3 Final was my IPB version, and i am using IPB2 in impex, can it be the problem? I should have used IPB

      Yes, that may be the problem, I don't know what versions of IPB are in ImpEx, but you must have it the correct version or else it will act like it doesn't know anything about it.

        ok my version is: Invision Power Board v1.3 Final

        and now i re-installed the forums and ran impex and chose ipb 1.3 this time, and again when i run "Check and update database" , i get following error:

        Altering tables

        ImpEx will now Alter the tables in the vB database to include import id numbers.This is needed during the import process for maintaining refrences between the tables during an import.If you have large tables (i.e. lots of posts) this can take some time.They will also be left after the import if you need to link back to the origional vB userid.

        So what am i doing wrong? why is it not finding those tables

          Well according to what the database files said yesterday, you must manually remove the table prefix (It was like something.ibf_tablename, the something. part has to be removed I believe.)
