    Converting OVF file using ovftool from VirtualBox produces error "Line 39: Unsupported element 'Caption'" and many more errors

      Hi,

       

      I would like to convert VirtualBox 3.2.4 virtual machine to VMWare ESX 4.0.

       

      In VirtualBox I have exported appliance to 0.9 format and then follow the following tutorial: http://www.ctrip.ufl.edu/howto-convert-virtualbox-to-vmware

       

       

       

       

       

       

      When executing command "ovftool my.ovf my.vmx" I got the following error:

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Opening OVF source: e:\VMW\my.ovf

      Warning: No manifest file
