We have a client with a Windows NT 4.0 Server which is seriously in need of migration to virtual environment. We cannot simply replace the server, as there are some legacy apps that we cant reinstall on modern operating systems.
We want to virtualize it, but so far have had problems in the conversion process / creating a virtual image. I like the parrallels for mac conversion agent as it works flawlessly over network, and i never have the headaches with it that I have with VMwares standalone desktop converter agent. However, we cant even install the Parralels transporter agent on the machine, we get an error
"Entry Point not found: The procedure entry point GetSystemWindowsDirectoryW could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.DLL"
Im assuming this is some sort of unreconcilable runtime error, but if we can fix it thats amazing. If not, im looking for best practices advice. We have the capacity to virtualise the system using parrallels for mac on top of osx mountain lion, or Microsoft Virtual PC on top of windows 7, or we can install vmware.
The server does not have USB, but i can pull the drive and image it using acronis or similar on another machine.
Thanks for the help. Paul
