I didn't input anything in the reg and It let me download.

So let me get this straight does it mean you can convert/copy your current drive/physical machine where windows is to a vmware virtual machine? If so that's really cool

Are you sure it's portable?

Might be - if it worked consistently. I couldn't get it to work with a hardware vendor-installed copy of WinXPHome on an Acer laptop.

VMware is, unfortunately, far from portable... Too bad.

WM converter is really interesting, but what I would really like is for a way to load vms on to PCs.

THAT, would be sweet! ;)

I think, back 2008 you wont find suitable tools to make P2V.
Now a day it is possible to create not only P2V, V2P and also booting virtual directly to real machine just using freeware tools like virtualbox, disk2vhd, grub4dos, IMG_XP_80.exe. It works at least for me to create like portable nlited xp.vhd or w7starter.vhd.
Here is some idea easy to follow to create it.
