VMWare Physical to Virtual Conversion Speedup

Here is a powershell script I wrote that disables SSL for  P2V Conversions using VM converter. 

$xml = New-Object XML
Function FindIT {
#test to see if it's a vista or better
if (Test-Path "$env:programdata\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-worker.xml"){
$filelocation = "$env:programdata\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-worker.xml";return $filelocation }
#test to see if it's 2k3 or older
Elseif (Test-Path "$Env:AllusersProfile\Application Data\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-worker.xml"){
$filelocation = "$Env:AllusersProfile\Application Data\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-worker.xml";return $filelocation}
else {Return $false}

if(!($filelocation= FindIT) -eq $false){
if ($xml.Config.nfc.useSSl -eq "true") {
Write-Host "SSL is Enabled.  I'm backing it up and changing it."
if (Test-Path "$filelocation.old"){Remove-Item "$filelocation.old" -Force}
Rename-Item "$filelocation" -NewName "$filelocation.old"
$xml.Config.nfc.useSSl = "false"
}else{Write-Host "SSL is not enabled"}
} else { Write-Host "I didn't find it where I thought it should be... Sorry." }

Update:  I changed the hard coded path to $env:programdata for vista+
Update:  I changed the hard coded path to $Env:AllusersProfile for 2003-
