Is it possible to convert a VMware ACE virtual machine to one usable in the normal VMware Player or Workstation? Does this depend on the installed OS of the VM?

This should be possible usingthe vmware-acetool, using the cloneToVM method. There are a couple of caveats to doing so though:

  1. The VM has to have the administrative tools policy on it
  2. You must have the recover key enabled if your using authentication
