is there a way to convert QCOW2 to OVF? or is there a way to open an QCOW2 on WINDOWS (preferably free/open source)?

the problem is that ubuntu's virtual machine manager was used to create the image and now i'd need to use it on windows (xp).

is there a chance? thnx

    what virtualization software were you going to use on Windows? OVF might not be your best destination depending on the answer... – MattB Jun 8 '10 at 15:48
  • ended up not doing it, but reinstalling an image in virtualbox from scratch. – b0x0rz Nov 5 '10 at 6:45

Another solution I found for the same conversion requirement is to install QEMU on Windows and use the same syntax as for regular qemu-img

C:\Program Files\qemu>qemu-img.exe convert -O qcow2 image1.vmdk image1.qcow2

Source for downloading the qemu binaries here or here
