VMware Converter – Unable to Deploy Agent

KB ID 0001345


I still think P2V conversions are cool, and I’ve been doing them since version 3! It seems though every time I try and do one with the standalone converter though I get this error;

Cannot install vmware converter agent

VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
Unable to complete installation/uninstallation of converter agent on ‘{target}’


I always spend five minutes messing with firewalls, checking remote registry services, credentials, and the fix is nearly always the same;

Locate VMware-Converter-Agent.exe in  C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone, copy it to the target machine, and install it manually. Then try the conversion again.

If it gets this far, your problem is solved.
