PowerShell script to automate converting VMware VM's to Hyper-V using MVMC 3.0

Microsoft provides a free tool to convert VMware 5.5 VM's to Hyper-V 2012 R2. The tool is Virtual Machine Converter 3.0. It supports PowerShell.  I would like to basically run a script that would prompt for the IP address of the 'source' VMware server, an admin account/password to connect to VMware, the same info for the 'target' Hyper-V server and copy and convert all the VMware VM's to the Hyper-V host.

MVMC 3.0 it does not work very well.....

you would be better off with Double Take MOVE, for your migration!

Double-Take MOVE does Anything to Anything migrations!

see my EE Article for an example....

Thanks for replying Hancock.
MVMC 3.0 has worked very well in the testing I've done, the only issue is that my knowledge of PowerShell is not advanced enough for me to automate the process.

What is the pricing for Double-Take Move?
You need to liaise with Visual Solutions for pricing.

Andrew made a good suggestion, but I ended up doing something different.
