Convert SMF to Elk

So I have looked around and didn't find anything obvious but it there an official SMF to Elk convertor or is this the one that I need?

Trying to convert forum with the file linked above and it keeps giving me this error when I try to do the conversion:

Quote
This importer was unable to find Wedge in the path you specified. Please double check the path, and that it is already installed there.

I have my ElkArte forum installed in

/var/www/elk

and my smf forum is in

/var/www/smf

and the convertor files, import.php, import_en.xml, smf2_importer.xml, are in the root of the elk folder. I enter the path for smf as

/var/www/smf

and enter my database password and click the Continue button and get the above error.

Does one of the forums need to be inside the other forum in a subfolder?

Just in case it matters....table prefix in the smf database is "smf_" and elk is "elkarte_".

Nevermind....I got it to work by installing ElkArte into a subfolder within the SMF root folder. Imported flawlessly after that.
