Failed to convert

I started a convert job on a running win7  os  --  same os that converter is running on -- it got to 98% complete then failed -- is there a way to

debug what when wrong?

This is reconfiguration error... Two possibilities: try to start VM, if it not starts upload log bundle to check for possible workaround.

It's always recommended to use latest Converter Smiley Happy

Reconfiguration fails because converter can't load target registry hive.

Try the same conversion job but start the UI "as administrator".

Your uploaded logs are from 6.0 version...

Do you test to run UI 'as administrator'?

yes -- the id that I ran from  is in the admin group  --  is there a later version than 6.0?

VMware vCenter Converter: P2V Virtual Machine Converter

Run "as administrator" elevates administrator's rights.
