  2. Hello Daniel, What a great resource you have here. I’m glad to have found your website.

    Question…please and thank you…On the off-chance you might still get a notification of my comment on this older post, here goes: Do you perchance have access to the original .exe download/install file for “VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 4.3” ?

    I’m a middle-aged, (55-yrs, recently back-to-school-again) full-time, IT/CS-student looking to install and play around with Bitnami’s Ghost (VMware) VM.

    However, I primarily use Oracle’s VirtualBox software. To convert BitNami’s Ghost vm to VirtualBox, BitNami’s says to use VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Version 4.3 which still had the ability to convert a virtual machine file from VMWare’s file-type to the VirtualBox file type.

    VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Version 4.3 is not available on VMWare’s site. (For obvious reasons, me thinks.)

    Since the software is/was OpenSource (I believe it was?), I’m hoping to secure a copy of the install file for VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Version 4.3 from someone’s archive…

    If not available, I make take the plunge and use VMWare’s open-source software… Thanks again!

    Cheers, Steve in Seattle
