My host computer is running Windows 10 Professional and is fully up-to-date.
I am using Oracle VirtualBox 6.1.
My guest machine is running Windows 10 Enterprise and is fully up-to-date.

The guest OS works find in VirtualBox. I would like to export the virtual machine (guest) so that I can use vmWare. I have tried exporting the VM with the "Open Virtualization Format 1.0" setting. When I try to open the exported VM in vmWare I receive an error. I then click "retry" and the imported VM getts stuck in a reboot cycle.

Are there specific settings that I can try to make this process work?

Thanks in advance.
