Converter for local machine: Insufficient permissions to access the source

This post was originally published on this site

Hi!  I’m running Converter Standalone 6.2.0 build 8466193 trying to create a VM from a physical machine running Windows Server 2003 SP2.

 

The program installed successfully, but I am getting an error when I try to create a VM.  I am trying to write it VM to a NAS.  At first, I had the NAS mapped to a network drive, and it was failing.  Then I tried using the IP directly to the share, and it got a little further.  Now I am getting the error, “Insufficient permissions to access the source.” in the GUI.

 

I opened the log and found many errors trying to access local files:

and it goes on and on.

 

I tried running the converter program as administrator with no luck.  I also setup the destination network share with read/write access to everyone.  Also, I tried disabling local antivirus ( McAfee).

 

I’d appreciate any insight anyone has!

 

Thank you!
