  1. And 5 years later when trying to convert a laptop install of Windows 7 to a virtual machine I get the same error. Turns out that the laptop had VMWorkstation installed which creates multiple network adaptors which the converter doesn’t like. Disabling all the virtual adaptors as well as Bluetooth and WiFi the conversion then works.
    Thanks for your article it pointed me in the direction of “network stuff” while the initial error had made me look at licensing and capacity configuration.
