I'd check the permissions on the folder, Make sure that administrators is listed as the owner, and that System, administrators, and your user account have full access to the folder.

On my phone and cant see the graphic.  However, if memory serves, you cannot import a vm that hasn't been exported.  If that's the case, I would manually recreate cm and attach the vhds to the newly created vms.  (make backups of the vhds first).  You may.thdn need to revonfigure networking, but I think that should take care.of you.

Unless you can go back to the hyper-v server and export them properly.

Leew is correct. Unless you exported the VM's, you cannot import them into a new server. In order to recreate the VM using exisitng VHD's, go through the wizard, and choose existing VHD's when connecting. I am assuming that all VHDs are IDE and not SCSI. It would also help for processor and memory settings to remain the same. Keep in mind that you will most likely have to reinstall the network adapters due to how synthetic NICs function in Hyper-V/R2
