Were you using the converter from this post: viewtopic.php?p=13252438#p13252438 ?

You will need to convert to phpBB 3.0.14 first, and then upgrade to 3.3.2

phpBB 3.0.14 does not have an app.php file. You indicated you installed the latest version. You cannot convert directly to 3.3, you must install 3.0.14 first, and convert to that, using the converter for vb4, not the convert for phpBB-2.
