VMware Importer Beta 2 converts Virtual PC files

updated 07:50 pm EST, Fri January 11, 2008

VMware Importer Beta 2,VPC

VMware today unveiled VMware Importer Beta 2, its tool for converting virtual machine disk images to work with Fusion, which now supports Virtual PC disk images. Users with Virtual PC 7 on their PowerPC-based Macs can now transition to Fusion on a new Intel-based Mac; the importer supports installs of Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, XP Service Pack 2, and Server 2003 in VPC 7 disk images. VMware is offering the update on its website, available for users of its Fusion virtualization product.

VMware Importer also supports Windows 200 Service Pack 4-, XP Service Pack 2-, Server 2003-, and Windows Vista-formatted Parallels disk images. The company also offers the VMware Converter tool to turn a Windows PC's hard drive into an image that Fusion can use.

    Only VPC 7?

    I think my last VPC was a v6 or maybe even a v5 -- but it's just another FAT32 or NTFS image -- it'd be cool to be able to bring that in and play MechCommander Gold!

    (Kidding: MC Gold won't run on anything more or less than Win 98/2K, total native.)

    My only wish

    is for VMWare Fusion to stop pulling the OS X menu down when I move the mouse to the top in full-screen Ubuntu.

    It's annoying.

    POS!

    This sucks! I've got a couple of VPC 4 images running Win 3.1 on it, and these fools won't convert it? How am I supposed to play Leisure Suit Larry 2?????

    Since you like MS so much, why don't you buy VPC 7, see how much support VPC 7 has for VPC 4. If you can convert to VPC 7, you can convert to VMWare. Simple.
