Converting a Virtual Machine or System Image Using the Open Command

To convert a virtual machine or system image using the Open command:

1. Choose File > Open.

2. In the File name field, enter the name of the configuration (.vmx, .vmc, or .sv2i) file for the virtual machine or system image to convert. You can use the field Files of type to filter the files displayed by file extension, so you can browse to the configuration file.

3. Click Open. Workstation automatically creates a VMware virtual machine, with a VMware configuration file (.vmx) for the converted virtual machine or system image. The converted virtual machine links to the virtual disks of the original virtual machine or system image. The original Virtual PC or LiveState Recovery configuration (.vmc or .sv2i) file is unchanged.
