Error converting a physical WinXP using vcenter converter standalone

Hi all,
I'm  trying to convert a WinXP (SP2)  notebook using vCenter Standalone Converter 4.0.1-build-161434.  I'm using local installation.

I get the following error:
FAILED: A general system error occurred:
Remote server closed connection after 0 response bytes read

I'm quite new to VMware so I'm not sure whether I understand it right, that the free standalone converter includes all necessary software.
It seems to me that the server is not working OK on my machine. Do I need to install a server separately or ...?

tnx for any help, clues,....
