An additional information.
I will run the xp virtual machine, when obtained, by VmWare Player 15, on Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Ok friends, seems that i have solved the problem.
I simply installed the Converter 6.2 on the XP machine and it works.
Maybe this can be of some use for others too.
You can do it with many old versions like:
I converted a physical windows server 2000 with this version.
And also check the required ports for P2V converting:
Converter Standalone server to Fileshare path TCP - 445, 139 UPD - 137, 138 Converter Standalone client to Converter Standalone server TCP - 443 Converter Standalone server to vCenter Server TCP - 443 Converter Standalone server to the destination ESXi TCP - 902Please mark my comment as the Correct Answer if this solution resolved your problem
10 Years ago we use VMware Converter 3.0 to convert W2k3 and XP.
Thanks everybody for your help!
However, the solution is simpler than one may expect: the last version of Converter (6.2) works perfectly on XP.
I already created the virtual machine, and it works on windows 7 better (faster) than the original machine!
All the Best
