Bought WP16 to do this on a new machine and assumed I could use the standalone converter, couldn't find it, googled a bit more and found that it's been deprecated.

What I'm trying to do is to migrate some regular ol' W10 Hyper-V VM's into Workstation 16 Pro on another machine. The exported machines predictably aren't recognised for import and all the search hits reference the tool that's no longer available. I also followed a Stackexchange thread on it and it kind of petered out on where to get the tool after the fact, not another way to do it.

Any ideas?

Got bounced around a few times but did find the download for Converter 6.2.0.1. It does require a vmware account to download though- https://customerconnect.vmware.com/...da9&uuId=8a69d741-e75c-4b7b-9323-f1f238dbd4e8

An alternate option popped up that may work too but might need to do additional steps- https://www.starwindsoftware.com/starwind-v2v-converter
It says Hyper-V to ESXI, so you may have to convert to VMDK, then import into WP if it can't directly drop them into your new environment.

Hope that helps
