Opening and Importing a Virtual Machine or System Image

Workstation provides two ways to convert a virtual machine or system image:

  • Use the File > Open command to convert and open a virtual machine or system image quickly. Workstation uses default settings to make the conversion automatically, with no input required from you. See Converting a Virtual Machine or System Image Using the Open Command.
  • Use the File > Import command to specify a number of options for the converted virtual machine: the converted virtual machine's location, whether or not the converted virtual machine shares virtual disks with the original virtual machine or system image, and whether the converted virtual machine is to be compatible with Workstation 5, or a legacy virtual machine that is compatible with Workstation 4, ESX 2.x, GSX Server 3.x, or VMware ACE 1.x. See Converting a Virtual Machine or System Image Using the Import Command.
