do you still have the file in the specified path ?
maybe it helps to replace it with a known-to-work copy from the VirtualPC ?
I wonder if converter would touch that file ? - I doubt so ...
I agree with Ulli because I also doubt that the converter process would touch the file. Does it work on the original machine?.
Did you run a cold clone or a hot clone?
i would suggest doing a coldclone and that would ensure all files will be intact. the faster would would be copying the missing file over.

When you convert the server I would suggested stopping all the service's that are not needed during the migration process (virus, IIS etc.). When the services have been stopped then make sure you set them to started when the server has completed the migration.
Doing this will make sure that the IIS is not running and will stop any possible corruption of files.
This is all very easy to do through the converter tool but if you need any further advise then please let me know.

I still have the file, but since it's a system file, Windows does not allow me to delete/rename/replace it.
It's the DLL that controls the IIS Admin service, so i can't do anything to it even if log in as admin. If you know of any way i can get windows to allow me to replace that file, i think my problem will be solved.
I am doing cold clone. I am converting a .vmc file to a .vmx file. Therefore no services are running when i am doing the conversion.
The IIS ADMIN works perfectly well on the original VPC (.vmc)
boot the VM into your favorite Windows LiveCD - then replacing the file is no problem at all
Don't have a copy of Windows LiveCD and $80 is a bit high for me to spend on something that should work with no problems... :-(
Any other ideas?
what are you talking about ?
The registered version costs $80. I tried the demo version and although it has limitation in how much KBs you can copy/move, i was able to rename the old iisres.dll and replace it with the one from the machine that was working.
Thanks for your help!
I am still interested in the LiveCD you are talking about ?
