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 🙂
Run the VM ware converter as administrator.
Click on Convert Machine option.
