I exported a Win2K3 OVF format from vSphere ESXi 4.0 (pre update 1). I tried to import it into VMware workstation 7 build (203739 ). But, I got the error "The OVF descriptor file could not be parsed". I have tried this on two different workstation running VMware Workstation 7 and export two different OVF file and they got the same error message. Is vSphere ESXi 4.0 compatible with VMware Workstation 7?

Any suggestion?


There are two versions of OVF; 1.0 and 0.9. Try VMware's OVFtool to convert the OVF.
