      Try using the full path (including the preceding slash):

          I am transfering from zeroforums also and I do not understand where I should get my files from...like yours

          home/postgame/public_html/pgpwagvb - NOT OK
          home/postgame/public_html/pgpwagvb/impex/zeroforum/zeroforum_users.xml - NOT OK

          Yes I am new at this so please be kind. I go into my zeroforums admin screen and download a dump of my users in .xml but I am not sure where I save it at?

          Thanks

            You will need to save it to the server running ImpEx & vBulletin.

            Then give the path to the folder you save it in, to ImpEx when it starts up and asks where the XML files are.
            I wrote ImpEx.

              This is what I keep getting, not sure what's going on.

                This means that the above are not the real paths to these files. You need to use the full and correct path. On Unix/Linux systems you can find the complete path name by telnetting or sshing into your server, going to that directory and typing:

                pwd
