Hello experts,
I Prepared a window7 Computer - it is a virtual PC in my hyper-v environment. I installed the Microsoft virtual machine converter.
But I keep getting an error. can you please tell me how to fix the error.

Can I do P2V using a windows 7 OS or do I need a server ?

Is there another Tool I can use?

Read the pre requisites in the resolution listed at the bototm:


-Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 operating systems

-Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 and .NET Framework 4 if you install MVMC on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

-Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 if you install MVMC on Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, or Windows 8.

-Note   Although MVMC installs on all of these versions, using the Windows PowerShell cmdlets that are released as part of MVMC requires Windows PowerShell Runtime 3.0, as the cmdlets function only on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and above or Windows 8.

-Visual C++® Redistributable for Visual Studio® 2012 Update 1 . Download Update 4 from here.

-Enable the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) feature in Windows Server.
