        Yes, you need to install vBulletin first.

        Copy the contents of the Impex upload folder to your vBulletin root directory:

        http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex (choose 4.2.0 Patch Level 2 from the dropdown at the top of the page if you can't see the manual entry after going to this link)
        Vote for:

        - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
        -
        *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
        - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
        - "Quick Route" Interface...

              You first need to install vBulletin SOMEWHERE, doesn't matter where in the long run, can be changed.
              Once vBulletin is installed, you need to install impex into vBulletin's folder.
              Then you can use the impex software to get your smf data out of your smf site.
              Then you can move the vBulletin software to the /forum/ folder if you want it there.

                thank you.
                just now installed Vbulletin , but got error

                http://technodiscuss.com/vbforum/

                As per error, i felt its config file is missing.. but there is no config file in my downloaded 4.2 (/includes)vb folder

                and as every where i am seeing install impex folder in Vbulletin installed dir.
                Does i need to upload all impex folder or in downloaded impex folder there is upload dir -> there impex folder and include folder.

                what exactly i need To upload

                  There is a config.php.new file If its not in your download, then something about your download was wrong.

                  Redownload the software. You can't impex yet, you haven't installed vBulletin yet. Stop worry about step 2 when you're stuck on step 1.

                      You've fully installed vBulletin 4 and have a working vB4 install?

                          For the impex stuff.

                          You now need to upload the files inside of the upload folder, your vBulletin folder.
