open VHD files

I need to open a corrupt VHD file to copy the files inside.  We've already tried to mount it with VMware 4 and VMware workstation 6.5.3.  in addition, we tried to use ParentolLogic and WinImage conversion tools to change it to a vmdk file and mount it as a drive.  That didn't work.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

We tried using the softwares recommended, but we still couldn't open the file.  We believe the file is corrupted.  We ended up reinstalling and reconfiguring the services on the server.  The suggestion was a good one and one that we hadn't tried yet, however, still didn't help us resolve the issue.
