VMware Workstation 5.5Features | Documentation | Knowledge Base | Discussion Forums
Importer Application Requirements
The importer runs on the following Microsoft Windows operating systems: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, and Windows XP Professional.
Note: Although the importer operates only on Windows, after the migration you can transfer the virtual machine to the VMware-supported host platform of your choice.
Virtual Machine and System Image Input Requirements
Note: Virtual PC and Virtual Server virtual machines with Windows 9x, and non-Windows guest operating systems (for example, Linux and DOS), are not compatible with VMware Virtual Machine Importer. This is true even when the destination VMware platform otherwise supports that guest operating system.
The VMware Virtual Machine Output Compatibility
Note: Workstation 4 virtual machines are compatible with VMware GSX Server 3.0, ESX Server 2.x, and ACE 1.x.
