ERROR: Import documents from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 Foundation

I'm currently preparing to migrate documents from our old SharePoint 2007 servers to our new Sharepoint 2010 Foundation centralized repository. We need to preserve the version history, so your tool is the perfect solution for this.

We've uncommented the SharePoint 2010 assemblies line in the exe.config file on both servers (we ran it three times, once with both commented out, then with SP2010's exe.config assembly lines uncommented in our 2010 server, then with both servers pointing to the 2010 assemblies),

In all three cases we're getting the following error:

FatalError: The version of the package is different from the current version this program supports,

We're just trying this on one file in an import package to see if it worked. Is there something we're doing wrong? Are we not able to export from 2007 and import to 2010?
