I am still going to be working on fixing this issue in PT but until then, anyone interested can use this EXE to work around the issue. Below is the text from another post in which drgfire first posted this EXE. NOTE THAT I HAVE COPIED THE EXE FILE TO MY SERVER, SCANNED IT FOR VIRUSES, ETC., ETC.

Here are the download links:
Just the exe:
Visual Studio 2003 project with source code in C#:

I understand that people might be hesitant to download some dubious programs (and right so), and that's why I've included the source code to have a look for yourself. There's nothing harmful being done, at least not intentional ...
Bugs? Certainly, don't know. Neither do I know how PT exactly reads the files, nor how FT is writing them. Well, have a go and maybe report back. But please understand that this program is without support. I've really just created it for myself, but it might be helpful to others after all.
Edit: Maybe I should add a bit on how to use it
You have to specify two directories, the FT hand history folder (with username!) and some output directory to which the converted files will be copied. This directory has then to be given to PT.
Clicking on "GO!" starts the timer, which kicks in at the specified intervals and performs the file conversions. It is intented to be running in the background, together with PT in auto-import mode.
