SBS 2008 Migration Wizard has Stopped Working

I am in a test environment, migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008.. Things have gone fairly well till now. I just got done migrating exchange to the new server. I was using the SBS Migration Wizard (migrationwizard.exe). After exchange Migrated and I rebooted, the migration wizard will not open. I think the rest of the migration can happen manually, but there were some nice features in the wizard up to this point, would really hate to lose out on them... Below is the message I get when I try to open the migration wizard. My only options are to close or check online for a solution (which there is not one).

Description:
  Stopped working

Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:      CLR20r3
  Problem Signature 01:      migrationwizard.exe
  Problem Signature 02:      6.0.5601.0

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks for the comment. Everything was followed as directed by MS. Everything was working fine. Preparing the Source server was fine, Installing in Migration mode was fine. Migrating exchange was fine. Was using the Migration Wizard up to Migrating exchange. After all the mailboxes were moved, and a reboot. The above message is what comes up when trying to run the Migration Wizard to continue. It looks like the rest of the migration is manual, but if there are anymorea automated processes it would be nice to use... And just dont like having an error in the middle of this thing!

Thanks

Did a call to MS SBS tech support... FYI - there is a file out there called MigrationTasks. This file got corrupted. Deleted the file, opened the migration wizard just fine. It then showed all tasks as incomplete, but you can just go through each and check completed to get back to your current step.

I can confirm the solution.  The MigrationTasks.xml file is located (on the SBS08 box) in "c:\program files\Windows Small Business Server\Data" folder.  In my case, it was a 0-byte file.  I renamed the file (for safe keeping), then restarted the Migration Wizard in the SBS Console.  The wizard started without error.

Thanks for posting!
