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. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use VMware Converter to get a VMware Machine (VMDK) and then use Starwind V2V converter to convert the VMDK to VHD.
