    Instead of using sysinternal tool, to avoid password prompt when the pc Start you can use the native command "control userpaswwords2", steel working in 8.1!

    Hi Guys, I have VMware Workstation 9. The only export option I can see if File==>Export to OVF. I can't see an option to export to VHD. Can you please provide some further info.
    Thanks.

    Just wanted to add to mazman's comment, I too went to Export in VMWare 9 to see if that was the case, and ovf is the only export option. Any other resources?
