Hi!

First of all, ensure that the file "server.STALREX.local-flat.vmdk" stays in the same directory and have the appropriate size (312624900 blocks, i.e ~150Gb )

If it was not helpful, try the new Converter binary:
http://www.starwindsoftware.com/tmplink ... tarV2V.exe

There is a fix for parsing descriptor files.

Please, keep me informed about the result.

new software rev. give the same result: "Invalid File Format (11) [2]" :-(
