The last free version capable of coldcloning. No need for rebuildt iso, just hotplug this package to a running PE-environment. Works similar to other packages by me, with one exception. It no longer requires a given directory tree, and can now be placed inside any folder. Included as usual, is a tool to prepare the files.

VMware Converter 3.0.3 - LODR package for The last free coldclone supported version The prepare the files required either use Converter303_Preparation.exe. Just launch once and it will download, unpack installe and copy required files into a subdir named "VMware-Converter-3.0.3". Or, Download file from; http://download3.vmware.com/software/converter/VMware-converter-3.0.3-89816.exe and use batch get_files_converter303_ripp_installer.cmd Place Converter303_Coldclone_LODR.exe inside the directory "VMware-Converter-3.0.3" where the converter files are. To use LODR package, place the directory "VMware-Converter-3.0.3" somewhere you have access to from a booted cd. Then just execute Converter303_Coldclone_LODR.exe. It will setup everything and launch converter.exe in coldclone mode when finished. Note Sometimes, converter will complain about not being able to connect the local agent when executed the first time. If so, then just cancel and abort the process and restart in coldclone mode. Then it should work. Shortcut directly to coldclone mode is generated on desktop and in startmenu. Path to main executable (converter.exe) in this LODR package can basically be anything (in contradiction to earlier LODR packages by me). Ie, "C:\VMware-Converter-3.0.3\converter.exe" "T:\LODR\VMware-Converter-3.0.3\converter.exe" "M:\Temp\whatever\VMware-Converter-3.0.3\converter.exe" "G:\whatever\whatever\VMware-Converter-3.0.3\converter.exe" "X:\Programs\VMware-Converter-3.0.3\converter.exe"
