    The config file I found was actually 8.1 installer in <migratorInstallDir>\migrator\Migrator Configuration.xml, not to be confused with <migratorInstallDir>\MigratorInstalledConfiguration.xml

    Also, in the <removal...> section, which did exist, the object types defined are

                <object type="Field" enabled="false"/>
                <object type="View" enabled="false"/>

    Are we supposed to add a plural version of each, "Fields" and "Views", as in the instructions, or is this a typo and we should use the singular names?
