Can't import a settings file for 3.6.4. (file from another site running 3.6.4)

I think my title pretty well says it. I had all my info at .com/blog on my site and am moving it to .com. I created an export file for the settings on the .com/blog site running 3.6.4. I cannot upload it to the .com which is also running 3.6.4. I get the "Sorry but doesn't appear to be a valid Atahualpa settings file " error. It also says something about a file name being empty on line 8?

Good grief! I am completely lost on this. Can anyone help me?

Hang tight, I believe the moderators on this forum have helped others with this (or one very similar) issue. I'm sure they'll chime in and be able to lend a hand.

Hmmm, works for me, large header area, two right sidebars, AD in the footer.

If you are moving the site and did a database export/import to the new site, you don't have to do an export/import of the settings since they are stored in the database.

I did export from the /blog and import into the root folder but boy howdy, it's become complicated. First of all, I had to reset all the atahualpa settings manually (good thing I keep good notes). Additionally, all my attempts to redirect so that my SEO rankings and links are preserved seem to be going south. But I suppose that's a thread for another forum, eh?
