I think you can use VMware vCenter Converter
MS Hyper-V VM is treated as physical source.

Yep - the virtual hardware running in a VHD is different than VMware's virtual hardware. Using Converter will treat the Hyper-V VM as a physical machine and do the necessary reconfiguration to allow it to boot as a VMware virtual machine.

try the vmware converter and treat the virtual machine on hyperV as physical machine, key in the hostname or ip plus the correct user name and do a online convert

None of the suggestions in this thread answer your question.
I have the same issue. I have ONE server. I want to convert it to VMWare.
I have exported all of my Hyper-V machines on external storage. Installed VMware vSphere Hypervisor
which is now free. Now I want to import all of my Hyper-V exported machine to the VMWare platform.
I tried VMWare Converter 5.0 unsuccessfully - it wants to see a .VPC file which contains the disk and machine config.
Hyper-V does not have such a file.Microsoft Virtual server appears to have such a file.
I tried the Starwind (www.starwind.com) free converter. It did create a VMDK file. However
after I created and booted the VMWare VM based on this VMDK, the machine complained that it could not
boot because it could not recognise the OS. I was then prompted for a driver disk.
So far it appears that the only way to migrate the Hyper-V is to have it up and running and then use the
VMWare converter to move it over to VMWare.
DOes someone out there have a migration path for raw VHD Hyper-V files.
