I cannot convert VMware virtual machine to Parallels Desktop, error message : The process was not stopped, still want to continue the installation process.
In order to resolve the issue, please do the following:
- start the Terminal (Finder/Applications/Utilities)
execute the following command and hit Return:
/Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app/Contents/MacOS/prl_convert /<way .vhd> --no-src-check --no-reconfig
NOTE: instead of "way .vhd" you need to write down the actual way to the file of the virtual machine
/Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app/Contents/MacOS/prl_convert /Volumes/500gb\ 1/WIN-8.VHD
You can drag&drop you virtual machine file to the Terminal instead of typing the way to the file.
Type the command:
Open the file that you would like to convert and drag&drop it to the Terminal window, hit return/Enter
The converted file will be located next to your VMware virtual machine, but it should have .pvm extension.
To start the converted virtual machine with Parallels Desktop just double-click on WindowsXX.pvm file.
