To the uploaders on SA, I noticed the Starwind V2V software (for converting Virtual Machines between different formats) hasn't been uploaded for 6 years.
This is a very handy -free- tool; however, the company requires a signup to get the link. Therefore, it's good to upload a new/up-to-date version here on SA:

StarWind Software V2V Image Converter is a simple-to-use software solution for converting the format of disk image files. It supports the VMDK, VHD and IMG formats for the input.
The interface of the application is represented by a wizard-like layout where you can follow a few simple steps to get a task done.
Loading a source file into the working environment can be done by using only the file browser, since "drag and drop" is not supported; you can check out the format and size for the respective item.
In the next step, you can establish the image format for the output files, between VMWare growable, pre-allocated or ESX server image, MS Virtual PC growable or pre-allocated image, and Raw image.
In case of any of the first two options, you can select the virtual disk type between IDE and SCSI. After specifying the output directory and filename, you can proceed with the conversion procedure and, during this time, you can view log details.
StarWind Software V2V Image Converter uses a pretty low quantity of system memory and CPU, has a good response time and takes a reasonable amount of time to complete a job. No error dialogs have been shown in our testing and the program did not hang or crash. All in all, StarWind Software V2V Image Converter provides a simple solution when it comes to disk image conversion, regardless of the user's skill level.
