Hi,

no, because the vmware converter is not able to read the tib file.

The new Versions are not supported.

See the vmware converter 5.5 release notes

VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Release Notes

As a workaround, you could install a new VM, install Acronis there and restore the image.

After that, convert that machine to a new vm with the vmware converter!

That works for me, because i had the same problem a few weeks before.

Thx, but Acronis True Image 2014 Premium seems to be compatible with vSphere 5.5.

BTW knows anyone where can I download vmware converter 5.5 standalone as bootable iso?

I cannot find in the download section.

There is no bootable iso available for the converter 5.5

I guess only a 4.1 is available.
