I think I may have found a cause. In the first place when I was saving the .SMA file I was saving it to a flash drive plugged into the old machine. Then plugging the same flash drive into the new machine and running the tool. So it seems that SMA does not bring all the necessary files to the hard drive when you run the restore. So when you log in with one of the accounts you loaded in the background, it is still looking for that .SMA file, which of course is on your flash drive.
Try this and it might work. When you run the tool on the old machine, actually choose your destination as a local folder, c:\temp for example. Then copy it to your flash drive, and on the new machine copy it to c:\temp (exact same location) and then run the restore on the SMA tool.
