Error opening file (2) [3]

Postby bossofdos64 » Sat Mar 14, 2015 12:15 am

I've successfully used the converter many times before but now it no longer works when attempting to open a .vhd file.

- running StarWind V2V Converter on Windows Server 2012 R2 (have not tried that before)
- attempting to open a 1.2GB .vhd single file from local C:
- have tried "Run As Administrator"
- currently fails for ALL .vhd files
- file was on deduplicated drive but was copied locally where no dedup exists

This is the error "The system cannot find the path specified".

I can not say why it occurred in this case.

Can you get debug traces with DebugView to provide additional information?

I discovered the issue involved differencing disks on a lab system and it was the "parent" disk that couldn't be found. Everything converted great once I place the "parent" disk in the correct path that the differencing was expecting.
