Convert ESX VM to Hyper-V

I have an immediate need to convert a VM from ESX to MS Hyper-V. As I have never done this,  I am looking for assistance before I cause myself great heartache. Know there are converts out there, as I searched Google. Would appreciate advice on what to use and what to avoid. This VM is in a domain and must remain that way after conversion, as I don't have the admin rights to take in and out of the company domain.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

You can use a lot of tools (like Winimage, Starwinds Converter.. https://www.starwindsoftware.com/converter).

Some times, i had some perf problems converting a VHD to VMDK...

Why not use....Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter 3.1 (MVMC 3.1)

see my EE Articles for how to do it...this will convert and copy the VM from ESXi to Hyper-V, in one procedure.

3.1 is the latest. (or was the latest!).

Strange, 3.0 now seems to be the latest!

They must have pulled 3.1!

The only issue is that it seems MS has pulled the 3.1 version and went back to 3.0 version. We don't know why currently.
