How to use VMware Converter to take a backup running system

Before converting one issue that you will likely run into is “owner.info” error. To take care of this error you will need to log into the machine with a user name different to pc name. For example if I run vm ware converter on my pc whose name is hgoraya and I log in the machine with my domain login hgoraya I will get an error “failed to retrieve owner.info”. To proceed I must login using a differently named user e.g administrator etc. Please note that it looks like a bug in the software so there is no logical workaround. That is why this information is in red and bold 🙂 

Step 1 

Run the VM ware converter as administrator.
