Do you have a license? I don't know of any forum software developers that provide support to non-license holders.

I didn't open a ticket because I wasn't converting for myself. Was trying to help someone on this forum to convert their database over. And turned out I couldn't help :(

I read others running into this same problem too. They did open tickets and IPB staff was able to fix the problem for them as I understand.

My thread was posted in the customer's support forum.

I too have MyBB, though I might someday move over to XF. The other problem, is that I use custom addons which might make the transition rather difficult.

For future reference, the current importers are listed in the FAQ.

Which importers/converters are available?
As of 27 May 2011, there were the following importers available:
  • There are official vBulletin 3.6 and vBulletin 3.7/3.8 importers built in to the software.
  • There is an official IP.Board 3.1.x importer built in to the software.
  • An unofficial vBulletin 4.0/4.1 importer is available as an add-on.
  • An unofficial PunBB 1.2/1.3 importer is available as an add-on.
  • An unofficial SMF 2 importer is currently being developed.

The custom add on will not have any influence on the conversion. You can uninstall them prior to the conversion if you want.
